Best. Summer. Ever.

Greetings from the Outer Banks - Avon, NC
This is our home away from home this week.  Not too shabby if you ask me!
We've counted the days until this trip since we drove off of the island last year  It's just awesome having all of us here together just kicking back and sharing laughs and fun together.
Our tradition of ordering pizza for dinner the first night lives on.

Today we've had clouds and spitting rain.  Even rain at the beach can be a good thing.  We've all just kicked back and relaxed today and I have to say it's felt heavenly.  It's also given me time to look at my upcoming calendar of events and I am just itching to share some new and exciting ideas with all of you.
The view from here....just over those dunes the waves are beckoning...
I loved sitting here and putting this month's Paper Pumpkin together.  It's probably one of my favorites ever.  It's called "One in a Melon".  It's stinkin' cute!  I have so many ideas for other ways to use the stamp set that was included in the kit.  Have you ever tried Paper Pumpkin?  It's a monthly kit that comes in the mail with projects that are ready to stamp and assemble.  It even includes the ink that you need!  Love it!  If you'd like to find out more about Paper Pumpkin, just CLICK HERE.
Here's a peek at "One in a Melon"...
All ready to craft to my heart's content...
How cute are these!?  Six fun cards and four adorable gift bags.

Whether you're a long time crafter or just a beginner, Paper Pumpkin is a perfect treat each month to keep your creative juices flowing.  One cool feature is that you can choose to skip a month here and there if you'd like.  It's just magical!
