Happy Halloween!  I'm really not much of a Halloween person, but since the post happens to be on the 31st, I thought it only appropriate to say. Hope that you have something fun planned.  I'll be working and sitting on my butt watching scary movies. Even though I don't do Halloween, I have to admit, I love my cheesy scary movies.  I hate to admit it, but, yep, Mike Myers, Jason and Freddy and I are old friends.

I have had such a fabulous month.  It was nice to get away for almost 2 weeks to relax. I couldn't tell you the last time that I have done that. I think, however, vacations are not for me, because I feel like a one legged man in a but kicking contest trying to catch up on everything.  :)

Let's get to the fun stuff first and then I'll tell you about my fun.  How does that sound?!
Since I was away a lot this past month, almost a month to be exact, I decided to do 4 winners.
The winners of a free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Stamps shop are. . . .


Congrats ladies!!!!  Just drop me an email and I'll get your FREE image right to you!

For my 1st mini vacation, I went to Mississippi to spend about a week with some of my sassy gals from the PCP (Paper Craft Planet) group, but I can't really post much of that, since Shirley stole my thunder. We had an absolute blast, and much to everyones surprise, Judy and I did not kill each other.  Siri, however became Ann (another DT members) good friend, but she was a little nasty to me!  Siri, not Ann.  I'll save that story for another day.  You really had to be there, but it was truly a 'belly laughing moment'…..until it hurt.

My 2nd mini vacation was to OBX (Outer Banks) for my birthday on Saturday.  Yes, I am now 46 and proud of it.  :)
I have a friend that has a vacation home there and it only cost us about $45 each for the entire weekend.  Food, gas and all.  What a deal.  I was in heaven.  I haven't been on any type of vacation for a very long time, so it was well deserved and much needed.   Here are just a few of the MANY photos. . .
View from the deck.  Yep. . . .many cups of coffee were had there in the morning.

First view of the beach.  That's Bella at the bottom of the photo with her red bandanna on trying to figure out the ocean.  Well, she had an itch at that moment, but the scene before was priceless.

Sunrise, our first morning.  Love it!

Sunset. . .missed the highlight, but it's still gorgeous!!!

These next few photos are from Jockey's Ridge.  Lord, did I learn quickly how out of shape I was.  Puff, puff!

It was worth the trip.. . .. 

Sand dunes forever. . . 

it goes on and on….

and on!  It was worth the CLIMB up.  Beautiful!

Corolla lighthouse. . . .
Nope, I didn't go up.  Afraid of heights and so I admired it from below.  Just as gorgeous with my feet firmly planted on the grass sand..

Walk around the area around the lighthouse.

Love that bridge.  Simply beautiful in person

And this gives you an 'overall' view of the area.  Gorgeous.  It was so quiet and relaxing on Sunday.  Just loved it.

Hope I didnt overwhelm you.  It really was breathtaking!  So much fun to get away.  I really enjoyed myself and had a fabulous time.  Time with friends is really the best thing ever!  Thank you to Kaylee and Lynette for going along with me.  I really had to drag you along, I know.  LOL I'm sure you won't want to go next year.  

So, that's mine. . . .where is yours?  We all want to see.  Show us please, if you will.  We are all along for the ride!  
You'll have until 9 PM EST, Wednesday, November 6th to get those entries in.  You'll be entered to win a free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Shop just for playing along.  One winner for each week.  So, get busy, we cannot wait to see.

So. . .until next time. . .. .

  3. I did that last comment wrong. Sorry. I hit reply instead on regular comment. Happy Birthday! Looks like you had a fun time on your vacation. Congrats to the winners.

  4. Woo-Hoo! What a great way to start a very busy day! Thanks Cheryl.

    I'm so glad that you had a good time on your trip. Your photos are lovely!

  5. I love the beach this time of year. There are very few people on the beach and you actually have the beach to yourself. Nothing better than the sound of the waves crashing ashore and the smell of salt air. Well maybe coffee in the morning or the smell of a new baby or the smell of puppy breath. LOL

    Congratulations to the winners.

  6. Hello!

    I am happy to know that you had such a good vacation - great photos! Glad you are back safe and sound! I love Halloween and just finished my haunted house - 2 weeks of work. Wishing you a Happy Halloween and a great weekend!
