Happy Easter!

Yes, I'm still alive, although, it has been a rough start to the year!!  My reports that I had spent every waking hour on during the first 3 months of the year were all submitted by 3/31 and then we took off for DISNEY WORLD immediately afterwards for 2 weeks!  So much fun, but, turns out, the crowds were out in full force thanks to a much later Spring Break season for all of you in the Lower 48!  That never crossed our minds, our spring break was all wrapped-up in mid-March here!  Anyway, it was worth it.  The weather was amazing and our little man had a blast. 

I'd like to say the drama at work has ended for me, but, unfortunately, yesterday the news broke that my boss' husband has been working for the state using a stolen identity (he's here illegally from Mexico) and was arrested last Friday.  We are bare bones staffed at the moment and if she ends up leaving, I have no idea what will happen...I definitely don't want that responsibility!!  Anyway, I don't know what to think or hope for on that subject, I am absolutely blown away...I never would have guessed.  Monday will be interesting needless to say...

Onto my first scrappy project since my return!  I was having trouble getting back into the swing of things, so, I wandered over to the queen of card's blog, Vicki Wizniuk.  If you haven't been to her blog, go!  She's amazingly talented and her cards are always simple but, knock down breath taking.  I'm not so sure I can say the same about this one, but, I do love how it turned out.  You can see the card I stole the idea from on Vicki's blog here.

I'm sure everyone's getting sick of seeing this Happy Bird image from Doodle Pantry, but, I needed a Thank You for the couple that watched my bird while we were out of obviously, what better image to use, don't you think? ;O)
