Hello there! Hope you are having a great day so far! Can you believe it's July 1st?? Time flies when we are having fun!! :) And it's Wednesday! And that means it's time for a new challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is...We're Going Dotty! We want to see those spots and/or polka dots!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Art Impressions! I chose this cute little puppy cling stamp and sentiment called 'Wuff'. Isn't he just the cutest? So sweet!! I stamped him onto some Prima Finnabair paper.

I also used the 8x8 Dots and Stripes Paper Pad by Echo Park, Neenah Desert Storm (Kraft) Cardstock, May Arts Natural Twine, ruler trim, White Opal Liquid Pearls and some Distress Markers.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

Last week we took a little (much needed) family vacation to Pennsylvania. The kids wanted to see Thomas the Train and Percy.

We stayed at this amazing hotel called Eden Resort. If you ever go to the Lancaster area and want a fabulous hotel to stay at, this is the one!! So clean, super nice staff and the there are giant indoor and outdoor pools, a huge splash pad area for kids, a playground, shuffle boards, basketball and bacci courts, putting green, outdoor pool table and ping pong tables, 3 restaurants, and more! You never have to leave! There is the main hotel which is beautiful and then there are these amazing villas that are separate from the hotel. That is where we stayed. We had a kitchen, which came in handy with 2 kids but I didn't cook, (YAY!) a living room with a fireplace, bedroom and a huge 2 room bathroom! We did not want to leave and we plan on going back very soon! I highly recommend it! I'm not a hotel enabler, usually, but this place was great! You can check it out HERE! ;)    

Hope you all have a super sweet day filled with love and happiness!

Your card is totally adorable, Melissa! I love the shades of colors from the puppy! And your little guys are just like my (gown-up now) son--Thomas the Tank Engine fans! I never stayed in Lancaster, but it is such a beautiful Amish country...(my sister/bro-in-law live near there). Hope your week is awesome!

Super photos of the boys - I've just spent this afternoon drawing a picture of Thomas for a 3 yr old.
