Back to the Real World

So my hubby and I have completed our 3 month parental leave together and the absolute BEST SUMMER EVER has drawn to a close.  We ended our 93 days of summer with a Disney Cruise that headed to the eastern Caribbean.  We were on the Disney Magic and it was awesome!  We had three port of calls to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.  Castaway Cay is Disney's own private island and non but our ship and it's crew shared this little private paradise.  It was a dream!  I can't wait to get my pictures and memories laid out in a scrapbook.  Now to find the time.  WAHHHHH!!!  That's been the challenge!  Last week was my first week back to work and although I enjoy the work itself, it's the commute that is killing me!  It's gotten worse than I remember it (and it was pretty bad before!).  I'm finding myself in the car 3 hours a day (1.5 hours each way).  That's three hours of precious time that could be spent with family or scrapbooking and such.  Quite depressing. 
On a brighter note, this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge is "Sparkle and Bling" and I've got some creations that fit the bill.
This Christmas card was cut from a Silhouette template.  The stamp from Greeting Farm.

This is one of those whipped it together in a flash cards.  The butterfly die cut is from Cuttlebug (Provocraft) and the bling on it comes from a Chatterbox set.
