A long weekend of Crafting and Fun

 Today I returned from a great beach weekend filled with crafting, laughter and lots of food!  Few friends headed out Thursday night after work to the North Carolina shore.  We arrived about 11:30pm to a really beautiful house right on the beach!  We stayed up late talking, laughing and enjoying knowing we had a weekend of fun ahead of us!  Even after staying up well past midnight we were up bright and early.  We headed out for a yummy breakfast at a local place.  So local we got looks when we walked in!  Oh and did I mention that the weather was wonderful!!  It was a no coat day!!  I loved it!  We headed back about 10am and got started on our scrapping.  We spent the whole rest of the day crafting. I was able to finish almost my whole 2010 scrapbook!  I was so excited! Since we had been up late we headed to bed before midnight.  Saturday brought another beautiful day!  We were up early again and after a quick breakfast it was back to crafting.  I worked on cards for the rest of the weekend and finished well over 20 cards.  We did take a dinner break and headed down the road to have some yummy seafood!!!  I had crab stuffed in flounder it was really good and got it at a great price!  After dinner we headed back to do a little more crafting before bed.  Today was an even better weather day than today! Again we were up early enjoying the sunrise and coffee.  Well I was anyway!  We had decided that we would pack up and spend the day hanging out on the beach.  After breakfast we headed out on a two mile walk down to the point.  It was a wonderful walk pretty warm in the sun with little wind.  We headed home about lunch time.  It was a wonderful weekend and I hope we can do it again sometime!  Below are two of the cards I made over the weekend.  The first card is the stamp of the month for Jan 11 from CTMH.  I really enjoy this new set and made several cards with it!  The bottom card I made using Papertrey Ink fillable frame 5. I love using these stamp sets!  They are so easy to use and look so nice!  I hope to post a few pages I did later this week as well.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
