Oldie But Goodie @ The Bug Blog

Yep, we're dustin' a few more off from the Bugaboo Oldies vault.
And this is one that was whipped up for our nephew's dad for Father's Day (yah, I know - a bit late posting.....been one of those summers!)

I so suck at BOY cards, but I kind of like the simplicity of this one.

10 Year Aruban Anniversary!

So my hubby and I just returned from our Aruban Anniversary trip - it's been 10 years that we've been married, which just doesn't seem seems like just yesterday!  As some of you know, Glen and I were married during the East Coast Black out of 2003.  As if getting married isn't stressful enough, we got married with NO POWER!  Can you say crazy?!

Well, we had a WONDERFUL time - relaxing, sand, sun, surf (and adult cocktails on the beach) - it was the PERFECT anniversary trip!  And POWER was included! :)

So, because I have very few projects together for this week since we've been done for nearly 2 weeks and it's been a month since I've been in my studio, I thought I'd share with you a few photos from our Aruban Paradise  :)

Ready for the Caribbean Sunshine?
 This was our view every morning when we had breakfast - pretty breath taking, huh?
Our Feet in the Sand Photo (we have one of these from EVERY vacation we've taken since we've been Married)
Dinner at the Ginger an Asian Fusion restaurant - YUMMO!
 On our last day on vacation, my hubby had to take a pic of his breakfast plate.
Needless to say after nearly 2 weeks of breakfasts like these, he's given up bacon, sausage & eggs for a bit.  :)
Gorgeous Beach view from our balcony - Every morning over coffee!

One of Glen's many scaly lizardly friends.
 Another view from our balcony at a different angle
Dinner at The Red Parrot - FABULOUS Beef Tenderloin!  YUMMO squared!
Twilight on the beach one evening

Yep, so those are a few of the crazy amount of the photos we've taken.
They make me smile just looking at them.  Can't wait to get them printed and start putting them in the scrapbook.

Oh and before I forget, I MUST share a funny shirt we picked up.
The FRONT of the shirt says "Chill..."
And the BACK of the shirt....

Yep, welcome back to reality! :)
Hugs & Happy Tropical Days!

VACATION TIME @ Bugaboo Stamps!

After 3 1/2 years, 1,862 posts and countless challenges, Jodie has decided to take a much needed vacation and has given the team a much needed break too!
So, we're taking a little VACATION over at The Bug Blog.  
Everybody needs a little summer vacation, right?

BUT, we'll be back beginning August 15 with our Bugaboo Oldie But Goodie Thursday Creations!
Jodie has decided to keep the 50% sale up during this summer vacation - What does that mean?  If you missed out on getting your images or just have to have more there is STILL plenty of time to shop!

In the meantime - keep craftin', we've got lots of fun challenges up our sleeves!
Hugs & Happy Days!
