Lets Build.

I've said it before, but I love this challenge site.  Scrap Our Stash has great prompts and will really get you using up some of those old products that you've been saving.   Their first challenge for  June was all about the guys.  Create a page about the boys and use 5 or more brads.  Easy right.  (You still have time to enter, so check it out)   

The lovely prima chipboard pieces were a lovely RAK from Marci.  They are from the Craftsman collection.  Cute huh?

Myrtle Beach SC

We're back from a much needed vacation.  Our first family vacation actually.  We visited Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I don't particular care for the beach, or water in general, but Blake has been asking for a couple of years now to go to the beach.  In the end it wasn't as he expected.  A never ending stretch of land filled with huge sand castles and palm trees.  You know like they show on cartoons. But we had fun!!!  

On our first evening, the boys spotted this attraction, and wanted to visit.   Been there done that, and I don't recommend to anyone who wants to eat a decent meal.  

We stayed at The Landmark Resort.  It was very clean and wonderful.  I loved that our actual room looked just like the room posted online.  Dark furniture, granite counters and great house keeping service made our stay comfortable.  I, for one loved the orange, blue, light blue, yellow color scheme, instead of your usual beach flower theme rooms.  

My youngest Bryson, loved the pools and the kiddie water park.  
 He called them the clean water.  He didn't care for the ocean, and would actually run up the sand yelling "run run away" each time a wave would come in. He would say Bryson don't like the dirty water, LOL.   He did like the sand though. 

Blake wasn't fond of the ocean in the beginning, but got use to it quickly.   He enjoyed looking for shells, playing in the sand, and walking in the waves.
