What a hectic week

Well, we're back from Niagara Falls (expensive, overpriced, overrated...) and had a nice time. We are already making plans to go back, just the adults so we can hit all the haunted houses (including the famous "Nightmares"), the massive water park and of course, enjoy a few drinks and laughs sans kids.
Anyhow, I will start off with the blog candy winner. Ellie was the only one who responded so it makes it pretty easy LOL, so Ellie please email me your addy and I will pop that in the mail for you.

A new inspiration challenge from Canadian Scrapbooker. Here is an excerpt from their website:
