page plans week 26

Ahhh...it is Sunday! Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I love it for its slower pace, for the fact that I get to go to church, and for the fact that my family hangs around more on Sunday.

Sunday also means a new PAGE PLANS sketch! Go HERE to check it out. Wow...I know this sketch looks relatively no brainer but it was killing my brain...lol! Once I put it in my mind that I was making this for my grandpa and his wife (whom LOVE to get my handmade cards) it was a little easier to figure out what I wanted as far as sentiment goes. This is already set and ready to go in the mail on Monday so...I hope you all enjoy it!

General details are....SU!'s Autumn Vine DP, PTI's Mailbox Greetings stamp set, and the Page Plans sketch along with the autumn theme. Nestabilities and some chipboard were used as well.

I just finished some fun notebooks for Hawaii that I hope to show you guys soon. I also edited and have all my birthday card and the boys' sympathy cards all set to show you BUT those will be my posts for while I'm in Hawaii. I'm not sure if I'll get to post at all while gone as it is $10 a day for Internet at the hotel. DH is trying to talk me into taking the laptop but, really, doesn't that defeat the idea behind a vacation? I'm just really looking forward to spending time with Todd so....I don't know. Thoughts? What do you all think?

With that...I'm off for the day! Have a great day and root for the
Green Bay Packers today!

NO LAPTOP!!!! I say,enjoy your holiday,we'll all be here when you come back,you should enjoy every minute together. How often does someone have a chance to go to Hawaii! Life is too short,enjoy your time with Todd!
That's my opinion,lol!

I love your card! ... Myself I would be crazy enough to bring my laptop... this way if I miss my girl too much I can at least chat with her with a webcame so this way I can enjoy the rest of the time... but I know that before computer there were a thing called telephon and apparently it's still working LOL .
Whatever you decide have a wonderful trip and don't worry about not posting during that time we will still visit when you come back :)

NO LAPTOP! I agree. Go enjoy your time with Todd and have a GREAT time. No kids, just Todd, have fun. Cheryl B

Dani said...

Oh wow! Love this! I didn't want that PTI set, maybe I was wrong! LOL!

I say take the laptop then it's there if you want it. Just because you take it doesn't mean you have to turn it on, or even get it out of the bag. KWIM? You'll probably be so busy having fun you won't even think about it! :)

That card is gorgeous! So festive for the season! As for bringing your laptop on vacation, I wouldn't myself. I say I will miss the computer when I'm on vacation but I never do. It's just a nice change a pace to get a way from it all. Just set your posts to post while your gone. If you need to approve people's posts just take that feature off while your gone. That's my two cents worth. Have a great week!

oooooooooooh! I love this!!! The colors and papers are just beautiful! I can't believe you cut all those teenie tiny leaves out!

(ps-I like to take my laptop with me too...ok that is because I have computer love affair....but I justify it by uploading my pics to snapfish...that way I won't lose any memories just in case something were to happen. Also I can use it to Skype.)
