Vintage Necklace from Scraps, plus my weekend in review ;)

First, let me show you the vintage necklace I made with scraps - I know I'm biased, but I love it! I can't wait to wear it tomorrow to work!

And second, I'm going to show off my cute family pictures from this weekend. We had our local Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society, which is what I've been making all the bows for. I raised a little over $200 from the bows, so I was pretty happy about that. We had fun, despite a one hour thunderstorm that DRENCHED us! But it was good food, good fun and good friends for a good cause! The first is our booth and my creations; the second pic is my daughter showcasing the goods; and the third is my hubs and I, post drenching, smiling for the camera.

And, I had a wedding shower to go to today. My FIL was driving my MIL, my daughter and I, as it was about an hour away in a place we weren't familiar with. I was sitting in back with my daughter, had us both dressed up so pretty, and then 3/4 of the way there...PUKE! Ugh, it was a mess - all over. I know, I will spare details. Just know it was bad. And then...she was fine. We got to the relative's house, cleaned her off in the car, dropped off the gifts, and then promptly went back home! She's fine now but gosh, what a day! Here are some pictures of our pre-barfing cuteness! (P.S. LOL, my son is in the "I can't make a normal face in a picture, mom" stage!)

I hope you all have a great week - happy Monday!
