Were @ Coronado Island today ;)
Which is beautiful even though it's only 64 degrees ;) not exactly swimming weather but I'm ok with that ;)
We came across Billy Pav aka Mr. Sand castle man (thesandcastleman.com)
*Billy Pav has been building sand castles as a hobby for nearly thirty years. On most days you can find him near the Hotel Del on Coronado Island*
I've never seen such detailed sandcastles
before! I was so amazed!!!! ;) I'm glad I had the opportunity to see his work ;)
On that note, I hope you guys have a great weekend ;) Any special plans?

I Love how all the layers look :)
I'm planning to submit a couple more after I get back from vaca
Gah! I can't wait to get my pictures from snapfish!
Luckily I caught their 50% off Memorial Day sale when I got back from vaca!
The Oasis had a SCRAPBOOKING room on board where they held classes! How flippin amazing is that?!?!
I took a few classes on Sea days. The classes included a small FREE kit that had a couple sheets of paper & sticker embellishments, they also had punches & die cuts available for use in the classroom. They did offer a larger kit with more paper & sticker options that is their own limited edition kit specific to the ship made by Me & My Big Ideas ;) They had a few kits & themes to choose from priced at $3.99 & $9.99 ;) I chose both the travel themed kits, although I wish they also offered an extra embellishment only kit too!
I got started on a couple layouts I promise to share as soon as my pics arrive! ;)
I'm back from my cruise!
Boy, do I miss the Oasis already ;)
I have more pics to share but I'll split it up in a different post....Here's a few of my faves for now ;)
Jump pic = St. Maarten
Donut pic = @ Boardwalk on the ship after we got our faces painted for the 2nd time ;)
Bar Stool = M took this pic @ Sr. Frogs in Nassau I actually had no idea the seats looked like that until he showed me the pic lol ;)
Today though, I wanted to quickly share a lil project I just made with some left over bead supplies I had ;)
I made this cute bright & summery bracelet using my fave doodlebug & making memories flower buttons ;)
I found some single swarovski beads
so I thought I'd put 'em to use ;)
I'm sure it looks like it belongs to a 10 year old but it makes me smile so who cares ;) lol
