Game Night

Saturday, Feb 15, 2014

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday.  As you can see by
the gorgeous bouquet pictured above, I was spoiled rotten again.
You might be wondering why Irv didn't get me roses.  Roses are lovely but
I don't enjoy them as much as a bright, rich colourful bunch of flowers.
This is definitely my favourite of all the bouquets I have received.
When you walk in my house right now you smell this fabulous scent and you
can't help but stop and take a deep breath to breathe in every bit of the fragrant
aroma.  Feels like summer on a bitter cold day.  Love my hubby!

Speaking of favourites:

It's no secret that one of my favourite things to do is play games with my family.
There is always fun, laughter, pop, chips and candy.  There is occasionally veggies
and some cheating but those are both rare.

Another one of my favourite things to do is to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy
reading my friend's blogs.  A few days ago my dear friend Tracey posted
this layout she made of her cutie, Maya.

Isn't this a gorgeous layout?  You can check out more of Tracey's creations on
her blog Trays .  Tracey got her inspiration for this layout from this sketch from
Stuck?! Sketches.

I used this sketch and Tracey's layout as inspiration for my layout.
Thank you Tracey.
