My Dad Is So Cool!!!

My Dad is so cool.
Dead serious.
Coolest Dad ever.

I thought the year he made me the biggest and best art aisle so I could continue painting was the best present EVER.
I thought the year he drove to Calgary and brought me a handmade bench for my garden was the best present EVER.
I was sadly mistaken...

My Dad build this bed for my nephew Logan for Christmas and it is BY FAR the biggest, baddest and wickedest thing he has ever made. Fo shizzle.

Here are some photos of this amazeballs bed :)

Can you believe he made this from scratch?  Built, Painted and Finished himself! Wowza!

This last picture is my favorite...
The smile on my Dad's face is absolutely priceless :)
I love seeing my Dad like this...unbelievably HAPPY!

I love you Dad - thank you for everything you do for us!


Messy (Swell to my Dad!)

Card Day - Whoa...

Today I've decided that since I left my camera in Calgary and can't take any new photos for posts, I will post an old card I had some snaps of :)

So in light of the 10cm of snow we recieved today...here is a sunny happy day card!!!

 I started with the yellow base paper from my DCWV Sunshine Stack. The darker ripped paper is that Corecolors paper  and I just used some orange cardstock for the scalloped piece. OF course, I added 3 jewels from Glitterazzi and some white flower ribbon from Michael's. The stamp is from Michael's $1.50 bin and I used DewDrop Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored it in with my Crayola's and added a tiny jewel by the "Smile" sentiment.

I hadn't done a card post in FOREVER!!!

Miss. Travel McTravelson ~ Roma

Good Day All!!!!

Today I am taking you to ROMA!!!!
Definately one of my favorite places in all of Europe. We walked all of Rome by foot and saw everything you could possibly see!!!
The buildings, the architecture, the remains still standing are so stunning. Words don't even describe the overwhelming feeling of being so little on this earth. I love this picture above with sun shining through the Pantheon ceiling. UNBELIEVABLE.

As soon as we got out we were bombarded by this guy!!! LOL We thought it was hilarious until he turned to My Paddy and said "That's $5 bucks man" LOL LMAO!!!!

This is Old Roma...so stunning. I can't believe they let people walk around it still.
The Colosseum was obviously one of the major highlights of Roma. We spent some time relaxing inside and taking in the sites. It was so hot that day they we were just happy to find a seat and some shade :)
 We had the best balcony at our hotel! But it was sooooo far from the Termini. Before we had to walk tot he train everyday we would sigh and say "lets get going on the never ending walk to the Termini..." LOL We bought lots of food at grocery stores and made fresh salads with fun breads...so good to have "home cooked" meals! ha!

Of course we had to get new tattoos in Roma! The guy was a total dink (excuse my language) and hated us from the get go because we didn't speak Italian. Mine was so extremely painful because he was laying on my stomach and kept yelling "no move!!!!" LOL

We went to Vatican city and took a look around. It was amazing...the church is HUGE! I couldn't go inside because I was wearing shorts :( but My Paddy did and took some amazing photos!!!
 went to an AS Roma game and it was sooo cool! Definitely one of my most vivid memories from our trip. The crowds were crazy and when they didn't win...it was a full out riot! People were throwing fire bombs into the audience...CRAZY!!!

On our last evening in Roma, My Paddy ate these delicious morsels of goodness over beers...

I'm glad i didn't eat them because poor Paddy was having troubles staying out of the washroom all the next day! And we had to fly!!!! LOL Poor guy! :)
