hew, what a whirlwind week!   We are back from Portland, Oregon.  Rob's brother Bill was married this past Friday!  Remember I shared the "Save the Date" and the wedding invites with you some time ago.  Wedding was beautiful and the kids had so much fun bonding with their cousins.  We just wished we all lived closer.

Here's just a few quick photos. 

Family1 Rob is the oldest (far right) and Bill's the youngest, the three girls are in the middle. 


Our delightful family.  Ella's being Ella.  Photographer had everybody look down and on three, look up.  Apparently a modeling trick?  We have a lot of scalp shots of little Miss.  What a cut up!  And I'm usually never as tall as Rob, but "someone" helped me "repack" and I arrived with some black shoes.  Neither matching and I KNOW I packed both pairs of black dress shoes.  This I discovered about 20 mintues before we needed to leave to for pictures.  I dropped everyone off and headed to the nearest mall, conveniently located about 5 minutes away.  The cutest and cheapest shoe that'd match in the seven minutes I had to shop was about 6 inches tall!  The things we'll endure in the name of fashion!  

But I digress, this is a stamping blog!  Here's my Save the Date Purse Calendars.  It's for my annual Hostess Appreciation Event on Thursday, April 2nd.  If you've been a workshop hostess, club member  or submitted a bookshow in the last year, you'll get an invite and calendar from me.  Bring a friend or two. This event is always lots of fun!  Don't miss it and PLEASE let me know if yours is lost in the mail.
