Thanks to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday yesterday!
Many of you know that Tom was hoping to donate one of his Kidney’s to his cousin Bob. Unfortunately he did not pass all the testing and was not able to, but Easter weekend Bob received a kidney after waiting 9 months, which was very exciting.
My Birthday was spent bitter sweet. Bob was admitted to the University of MN Hospital yesterday morning, as soon as we got the news, Tom and I headed to Minneapolis. Time with Bob, Susan an Chrissy is always great, and we are grateful that he has been stabilized and was giving everyone a bad time before we left for home. Please keep him in your prayers and if you are inspired to send off a greeting that would be awesome — they could use some cheering up. Just mention you are a stamping friend.
Less than 1% of all demonstrators earn the incentive trip each year.
Now back to Paradise!
Breakfast with friends Jeff and Dianna Gibbs, if you don’t know Dianna you are missing a lot. She is the bright spot in the day (even when she ditches you smiling). She is incredibly talented and if you haven’t seen her work be sure and check it out on her blog http://www.dianagibbs.typepad.com/. Not only will you be inspired by her work, but also by her writing.
This is the view across the ocean-fed Lagoon at breakfast, the resort is located along a rocky stretch of coastline, but you could enjoy the white-sand beach at the Lagoon.
It was great to snorkel in with the colorful reef fish and green sea turtles. You could also rent hydro-bike, kayaks, paddleboats, or water bikes.
This is almost the exact photo (without me in it) that I used as my screen saver to inspire me to earn the incentive trip.
We spent a great deal of time at the point on the right of the photo Whale watching. They gave us a show almost every day.
Hospitality Room Samples, This little guy, from Under the Stars stamp set p. 103 Spring & Summer Idea Book and Catalog, is just everywhere and can be used for so much more than a camping trip!
The basket here is done using the Shelli’s Signature Bigz XL Die Baskets & Blooms pg. 194 of the Spring & Summer Idea book and catalog.
Look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
