Another week gone by and another year older already!! The only thing I look forward to any more for my birthday is the ice cream cake.;) I also can't believe it has been a week (almost) since my parents 50th anniversary party last saturday. Wow! Time flies when you are having fun.;) The nice thing about the party for my parents, was to see some of our relatives we haven't seen in so long. And of course, I (gasp!) forgot to take my camera with me.:0 Well, it inspired me to make a couple more layouts for this weeks blog post. The product I am highlighting this week is BasicGrey's Plumeria Collection. I love the colors of this line and they go great with old photos. I used this line for our blog hop we did last month and figured I would use the other 2 layouts I didn't get done for that, to use here. So without further ado..............

I hope everyone has a safe memorial day weekend and don't forget to take time out of your day on monday at 3pm, to stop what you are doing and take a moment of silence in memory of all those men and women who lost their lives for our country. Hang your flag, if you have one, and hang it at half staff until noon if your flag can do that. Have a nice weekend! Until next time................... //////////////////////////// Happy Scrappin'!
