Complete Chillout

As today was our last full day we spent it just chilling out at the house.  I think we'd done so much earlier in the week we just needed to chill.  Although the weather was a little iffy we decided to head to Siesta Key to see if the drum circle was on and it was.  As we were there early we got to see the opening dancing and I even got a flower for my hair.  As it began to rain we decided to head into town and for some dinner.

We headed for the Hub and had a great dinner.  We started with the nachos as an appetizer as well as it being gorgeous it was huge!

Fish tacos for Steve and grilled talapia for me to follow -yum.

As it had been a relaxing day I've made a couple of cards:
This first one was inspired by challenges at:
Saturday challenge - blue and cream

This next card was inspired by the challenge at:
Get Sketchy - sketch #52
Most of the supplies for this card are from the Kaiser Craft Le Chateau 6 x 6 pad - can you tell it's my new favourite.

This last one was inspired by challenges at:
Allsorts - minature 3"
The Crafty Pad - 1 Circle, 2 Squares and 3 Brads or Buttons
Get Sketchy - sketch #52 - I loved the sketch so much I had to use it again but this time turned it 180 degrees.
Back to my Papertrey Ink goodies for this one.

In the morning I'll have to pack up my crafting goodies along with my clothes and get back to reality!  Don't worry I'll still enjoy every moment that's left of my holiday.
So "Cheers" as I raise yet another glass of White Zinfandel.
