Vacation....Get Together.... and Just Because!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!
Hello Everyone! I am back from vacation and trying to get caught up with things now. We had a fantastic time on our trip! The weather was amazing as always. It was in anywhere from 102-110 which was hot but by the water it was perfect! Here is a picture of the resort we stayed at in Mexico:) It sits on the Sea of Cortez 
This is right outside our condo, which was perfect as we spent 90% of our time in the lazy river and swim up bar, lol! 
I was able to sneak in a visit with some blogger friends while I was in AZ for a few days before the trip. I met up with CarriJulie and Tammy. It was so fun to meet this fabulous gals....I hope to be able to do the same again next went way to fast! Thanks again Carri for making that happen:) Your the best!
Before I left, I quickly made a little gift bag for these guys with some fun items for the upcoming holiday craft making.  I started with a fun bag from Scrappy Moms Stamps and decorated it up. These bags are adorable, love the fun dots & stripes!
 I cut a small panel with pattern paper from Recollections-Jolly & Bright collection and then popped a My Craft Spot doily using the 4" Doily Metal Die
I then cut the snowman from the Winter Frolic at 3" plus the layers. I stamped the face with the PK-520 Winter Face Asst stamp set. I tied on a cute tag using My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags Metal Die and stamping the sentiment with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set and tied it out with My Craft Spot Red String Jute
I filled it with some fun goodies...a fun embossing folder, some ribbon and bling, perfect for Christmas card making! 
Also, THANKS to all of you who stopped but while I was away and leaving such sweet comments. I really appreciated it! I will be trying to stop in to visit you this week and check out your awesome projects while I was gone.
I also hope to be back sometime this week with a project to share, once I get all my ducks in row, lol!! Ugh..back to reality!
