So what's on my desk this Wednesday, this is the mess I left when I made "A" card yesterday and before I can start today I need to clean some of it away.
Oh look you can see some new nesties that was to make up for not visiting craft shops on holiday, all I managed was Michaels in Santa Monica which was smaller than my local Hobbycraft but I do spy a couple of MS punches that I managed to buy and I brought my Sis a cover for her Gypsy for her birthday. Is that Magnolia doodle flowers can't believe they're unopened but thats because I'm seriously finding it difficult to get Motivated.
I know I haven't mentioned the holiday much or shown many photos thats cos I'm really struggling at the mo but I do feel I'm coming out of the fog but not up to sorting through 1000 photos.
My DS done us proud by booking us in a suite at the Bellagio, my hubby can't get over the fact we had 4 tellys. Not to outdone our DD brought us amazing seats to see Cher.
Our first day it rained! Wednesday the day of the Helicopter ride was a bit bumpy due to windy weather, but I survived and although really pleased to do something I wanted to do for ages I don't plan another Helicopter ride in the future.
We also discovered the delights of the Cheesecake Factory having read on several blogs how great it was, I discovered one in the Cesar's Palace I made sure we went, finally I did something right cos where we were staying in LA there was one in walking distance so we ate there twice more.

Hi Debby
thanks for the link for the digi image . I will give it another go.
Sounds like you had a great holiday.
We went 2 years ago and had a free upgrade in Planet Hollywood to a palatial Suite. It was unbelievable. Shame we were only staying 1 night.
I love Michaels too.

It sounds like a totally amazing holiday!!

Whenever my room was in a mess when I was little, my mum always laughed and shook her head and said 'Oh Margaret, you are so creative!' I say just the same thing to my own daughter. Except not the 'Margaret' bit!!

I hope the fog vanishes soon!

luv, Mags x

I love the Cheesecake Factory, and I love the fact they give you a bleeper when they are busy, so you can still go shopping and get buzzed when your table is ready! We, in England do not know what a real cheese cake is!
Have a happy woyww

Sounds like you had an awesome vacation. I'm from the States and I've been to the Bellagio, but never to stay. Just inside the marvelous building. Also have been to a Cheesecake Factory in LA. It was delicious. I only ate there once, but totally fell in love with everything from the appetizers (since I'm a vegetarian) to the wonderful cheesecake.

So sorry I'm late getting here this week. Company and life got in the way, a sad excuse, since I am #2.


Oh, but it is a fun mess!!!
