Hi my crafty friends,
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I had a great one. Friday was my nieces spa bday party, so I dropped my two girls off and had dinner with the two men in my life. My son and hunny. Saturday was my sons 4th birthday party. We had an awesome Avenger party!!Then Sunday my youngest daughter had a friends bday party to attend so the rest of us got to visit my grandma who lived close by. Then on Monday we all just relaxed and hung out and had a BBQ with family. For those of you who visit know that today is Tuesday challenge over at DCD... This is going to be my last DCD DT project for a little while because I am going to be taking some time to visit with my grandma who has been battling cancer for a little while now and is not doing very well. I want to spend as much time as I can with her right now. So I hope you will still stop by from time to time as I hope to post projects as often as I can. So here is my final project for a while. Hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting, Nikki

Enjoy and have fun with this week's challenge. Anything Goes!
