Vintage Street Market/Maya Road Purse

Hey everyone!   Sharing one of my Vintage Street Market projects today.   This month VSM teamed up with Maya road for some fun.  Both our Design Teams created projects using both companies products. You can check out the VSM blog HERE to see more.  The purse album below was a project I did for a give away on the blog.  Congrats to Kelly Sas the winner of this purse album.

I used the Maggie Jane paper from the new Family Fun Collection.   Flower from Prima and some of my favorite vintage trim.

All the pages are painted and waiting for photos.

The other day , I shared photos from Moms Birthday Saturday afternoon.  Well today I'm sharing some photos from later that night when the cousins got together at our cabin for a little campfire fun.

I look tired and a little chilly here..but trust me I was a Happy Camper!  Loved this time with the fam.
The photo below is me with my nephew Brent.  The photo above is three of my beautiful nieces.  Minn., Florida and CA girls :)

Nathanial was out for a ride.  (Nathanial is Brent's son)  my sister Donna's Grandson.  If you've been reading my blog very long at all, you have seen photos of Nathanial many times ... and are probably thinking "That cant be Nathanial!".... we'll, yep , that's him. He's growing up so fast. Boy is he TALL)


My son Weston with my niece Rhonda from AZ. ( my sister Donnas daughter)

Me, Rhonda, and my sister Jan.

I'm sure each of these pictures has a story behind it.  I might just have to find out what this one was about. lol  My nephew Scott, with my niece Kiley.   Lets  just  say .. we all had some laughs!  Awesome night together!


So I guess we had family here from NE, MN, AZ, CA, FL, CO, and SD

The boys even played some guitar in the shed. lol 
I guess we decided to call it "Shed Fest 2011".   lol

Actually, we could not have asked for better weather.  Not to hot and not to cold.  Fall at the cabin is my favorite.  Perfect night for a campfire.

So my neice (Rhondas) son Bryce and my son Weston have birthdays just a few days apart.. and are a year apart in age. With them in AZ and us here, they have never gotten to celebrate their birthdays together.... well... until now...

how she got them to wear those hats?? I will never know. lol

I will tell you this much.  I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all.  Everyone was so happy to have some time to spend together just haning out and having fun.    To get to see these kids spend time with the cousins they dont get to see very often was priceless.  Lots of  laughing and hugging went on thats for sure.

Jarad, Rhonda, and Kate 

I think we all realize, even more,  just how lucky we are to have each other.  Cant ask for more in life but to have people who love and support you, right? 

Cant wait until we can do it again!
Until then we have lots of memories.
