Sunny Florida Beach Pics

The living is easy. We did nothing but sit/lay on the beach, eat, sleep, play and read. It was a very quiet and restful vacation. Oh yes, I forgot to say shop. (my daughter and I) Found a great scrapbook outlet, like I needed more supplies. My little diva daughter enjoyed the beach along with my son and his friend. My hubby and I loved it too. We almost had the beach to ourselves, just a few other families. It was great!

Back from a week in Sunny Florida

Just got back tonight from a week in Sunny Florida for vacation and I am pooped. I did go to a really neat scrapbook store. They had some paper that I had never heard of. I really like Halloween paper and they had a line called "The Adams Family" I must have missed this line, it is too cute. I will be posting pics tomorrow and returning your comments. Thanks for visiting my blog while I was gone. I'm glad to be back and ready to make something!

More pics from France and Italy Trip

Here our some more pictures. We of course went all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower. It's beautiful at night. For 20 minutes everynight the Eiffel Tower "twinkles" with lights. It's so pretty. They even sell (for 10 euros) a flute of champage.

France and Italy Trip

Here are some pictures of my trip to Italy (Rome, Assisi, Pisa, and Florence) and France (Eze, Cannes, Paris) and Monaco (Monte Carlo). Of course I couldn't show all of the pics, (I have over 300) As you can tell, I took lots of candy and pastry shops. The groups shots are my students and their relatives that went , plus a few students without relatives. They were a great group!

The first picture is a picture of the Pope at the Vatican. You can barely see him in the distance in the Popemobile with his red hat on.

We also had an Italian cooking class. The kids loved it! This was in Florence, Italy.

check out the cute cards and things plus candy

Check out the neat things she has made and the blog candy of course!
