May 23rd Photo - Up On Top

A view from the Stawamus Chief. I wasn't brave enough to go on this hike but Emily and her Aunt were. I'm happy to settle for the pictures. I don't think I would have made it very far at all if they had of brought me!

May 17 Photo - Out with the Old & In with the New

Found this really great cast iron table and chairs at Costco the other day and just had to buy it. For 10 years we have had a great lawn chair on this balcony that I loved and had trouble parting with, but, when DH and I discussed how nice it would be to be able to sit out on the balcony and have dinner or our morning coffee I started thinking, 'ya, it's about time for a change'. I also thought how nice it would be to sit outside in the warm weather and work on my favourite hobby, scrapbooking and stamping. Our cat too soon found she quite enjoyed our new purchase as well. lol

May 16th - Reflection

A day early, but I had to post this picture Emily took of herself today. She took it in black and white and I just sharpened it a bit. I absolutely love it and just had to post it tonight! lol

May 15th - Addiction

My Paper Passion order arrived today. I met my friend Susan and picked it up. We split the cost of shipping, so yes, at times, I can be frugal lol I think I have come to terms with the fact that I am truly addicted to scrapbooking and paper crafting. How can anyone not be with the gorgeous products that are now available. I suppose if you're going to be addicted to something this is a good choice lol Can't wait to play with all these goodies tonight and make something great!

Another one of Emily's photos...

May 13th Photo - Navigational Aid

What a difference in my life this little gizmo has made! I am one of those people who has absolutely zero sense of direction. On the 13th I used my gps to guide me to one of my favourite scrapbook stores, Clipper Street in Coquitlam.

Ok...this is a little freaky but kinda cool too. Em is forever stealing my camera and snapping pictures. Mind you, I have to admit, she takes some pretty cool ones. This one she took today along with a bunch of very cool macro flower shots. Thanks for stopping by!

May 3rd Photo - Dad's Birthday Gift

Tonight we had my folks over for a lovely dinner that hubby cooked for us. I presented Dad with his special gift that I made for him, two handmade family heritage albums dating back to 1891. I think he was quite surprised and I know they mean a lot to him. Love you Dad!
