...catching up

Hello!

I was a smidge quiet last week:


This was the view from our deck last week:


We were in beautiful

Jamaica!


Darin and I can both say that this has been our best vacation yet.  A whole week of much needed R&R.  The people at our resort were beyond kind, so much so that yes, I'm going to be slinging a card together for a gal and her crew.  

Anywho's, it is definitely a place to go AND I noticed that the next Paper Crafts Cruise stops at Jamaica!

For blog post fillers I was slinging some goodies away from my stash and I'm back to announce the lucky ducks:



The winner is:




Yeah for Tracey...a fellow Canadian and bloggie friend!!!




The lucky girl is...




Wahooooo Becky!!!!  We are both February Guest Designers over at the Sweet Stamp Shop!


Follow Becky on Pinterest HERE.



...last but not least....the winner is:




Brandi is such a sweetie and always comments on the blog in the morning....I always appreciate your visits Brandi!


 Okay, that's it...today is filled with laundry and catching up with things.

Extra bonus bloggie points question:

Tell me, what is your favorite vaca destination?

  5. I want to see more pictures!!! glad it was a fab vacay for you & darin! I'd love to go to Jamaica again and next time, we'd be more street smart! HA!
    best vacation destination for us is hands down----- Tahiti! bora bora is beautiful! I can't suggest that place more especially for a honeymoon! and we are totally thinking about bringing the boys there. it costs just as much to go there to go Hawaii (kids fly free to Tahiti and 2 kids end up costing a lot) :)
    glad you are back! hope you're well rested!

  18. Looks like a fabulous way to spend a week, Amy! So glad you had a wonderful time and to hear that you feel so refreshed!

    My favorite place to get away is the beach - I like to get up early and walk along the beach to catch the sunrise. It's the best part of my vacation every year.

  27. I forgot to answer the question, I don't have any favourite, or as I love travelling I can say I have so many favourites, but I love all the National Parks (I haven't visited them all yet) or any place where I can be in contact with nature, Have a blessed week.
