Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Trying to get everything done really quicly.  No internet or phone at my house - this is day 3 an on top of that it's Thanksgiving.  So a blessed day to all!  YAY!! My dad made it home!  Now to keep him doing his therapy and thinking happy thoughts!  It's been a hard few weeks and I can't say how much your messages have meant to me - just the boost I've needed when I've been down.  Thank you!

I'm on a Paper Smooches kick lately and I've ordered more than a few sets - they're just so stinkin cute aren't they?  I'm really enjoying coloring them up - and the ease of the matching dies for lots of the sets.   The challenge this week at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog is a picture perfect photo challenge.  You are instructed to make a project inspired by this photo.    I have to admit I started thinking about vacation when I saw this - and my love affair with the ocean.    While my husband checks his email every night when he gets home from work I'm at the other side of the room crafting.  I always show him the inspiration photo and my finished project and say "do you see it?"  Once in a while I need to explain but most of the time he gets it - even when I put him under the microscope!  What a delight to see he's not just saying "Yep!"  So do you see it?  I focused on the couple and the colorful balloons.   Do you see it now?  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
