#33 for the September LOAD
This months sketch from DCWV.
Another Vegas layout... My Adorable One loves to browse the
cigar shops in Vegas. The smells are incredible and they have such
cool cigar goodies too!! He hardly ever buys anything... he travels with 
his own cigar humidor there!! ;0) But you never know what you might find!!

Another layout from Las Vegas.... I love Las Vegas!!
We go every year whether we need to or not and sometimes

excitement, the food, the drinks... love it all!! These pics are from a
restaurant at The Wynn... it is called Parasol Down. I love looking at
these umbrellas... they go ohhhh so slowly up and down and turn. Beautiful!!

The Tasting Game....

Here is this weeks sketch at Nuts About Sketches
These pics are from Las Vegas... there is a restaurant in Mandalay Bay and they have this incredible ice cream sampler. They make some pretty weird ice creams - octopus, rum and coke, melons, basil.. just some very different kinds. The fun of it is they give you a sheet and have you write the flavors on it.. if you guess them right then your ice cream sampler is free... otherwise it is $18. They start you off with a 'freebie' and tell you what one flavor is.... well thank goodness we got ONE right!! ;0) Fun!!
Here is my layout...
