Trip to Vegas, Card for NEC, Tokyo

My thought for today from " The Complete Live and Learn and Pass It On":

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus
on your family, the needs of others, your work, meeting new people, and
doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.


I am linking the card at the end of this blog to MIM
(Make it Monday). Go over and please check out this site!


Well, it has been a long time since I have posted anything. But I should have a few posts over the next few days. My internet is still acting crazy, but I don't have the time to replace the company just yet. Eventually I will have to do something. It gets ridiculous sometimes...

I took a work trip to Las Vegas, but I actually forgot my camera. These pictures were taken by a friend of mine who was kind enough to snap a few of the photos that caught my eye. : )

This was taken at the Wynn Hotel and Casino...

I thought these peacocks were so beautiful....

Loved these jewelry and pocketbook arrangements...

This was an outdoor full sized window...

This was a pizza restaurant in the Wynn. I really liked this wall of clocks...

My dessert back at the "M" Hotel and Casino (in the desert-lol)...

This is a card I made for the AFIS Internet Board and members to send to NEC Toyko to let them know we were thinking about them after the aftermath of the Tsunami...

The gorgeous paper I got from my very talented friend Helen. Thanks Helen, I think it turned out nice. Check out her will be happy you did!

Thank you, as always for stopping by for your visit. I really appreciate it.
