New MP challenge and Vegas...

I was in charge of my first challenge of at Method Playground this week. The challenge is to repeat or re-create a design element on your layout - my example - i re-created the trees in this patterned paper by scrapworks! Go check out the blog to see what the other ladies came up with. Hope you can join in - just link your layout over at the MP Blog and i have a box of goodies to send out to the winner!

Dean and I had so much fun in Vegas - we really didn't do a whole lot of anything. We watched like 5 movies in our room - ordered room service and ate like $5.00 bags of M&M's and drank $4.00 bottles of Diet Coke - holy crap that place is expensive. We were just to lazy to go down and get it from downstairs - we were on the 23rd floor and so comfy. We shopped a few different times and laid by the pool on Saturday. It was just relaxing....... the perfect getaway - short and sweet!

We ate Sushi with my friend Carey and her husband Tyler - we went to RA - a place down by the mall - it was pretty darn good - dean is getting me to like this whole sushi thing - its not as bad as I thought i would be - i think its all mental! But it was great to see Carey and spend time her and her hubby!
This is where we stayed - the Bellageio - wow - a FABULOUS hotel!

This is what the ceiling looks like where you check in - aren't the colors amazing!

Here i am in front of Ceasars Palace - we went and shopped at the Forum there. Beautiful - way out of my price range but still fun to browse.

Now we are back to reality - Dean's already off fishing, Mason started school on Monday and loves it and Ethan will start next tuesday - I'm ready for the cool weather - the scheduled days and a change in this fast paced summer we've had.

All you Fancy pants hopefuls out there - i'm crossing my fingers for you - can't wait to check back tomorrow to see who will be joining the team soon! Good luck!
