Happiness is a cup of Coffee...

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone! 
I hope you all had a great weekend!
We are back from vacation now and trying to play catch up on laundry, mail, work, etc. Boy, does reality set in quick, ha?!! It is freezing here...only in the 40's, yuk! 

 We had a wonderful time on vacation! We started by flying to Phoenix, AZ  spending a few days in Prescott, back to Phoenix and then the rest of the week in Sonoyta, Mexico. The weather was a little rough in Mexico as we had some of the effects from the tropical storm, Simon which dumped a lot of rain, wind and cooler temperatures. We still had a good time and will definitely go back again :) 

While I was on vacation, I was able to get together with a couple of bloggers again! Yeah!  We had a great time! I wish we would have had more went so fast :( 
Here is a picture of all of us:

I also have a quick little project to share with you. I wanted to play in a couple challenges and try and get my mojo back for crafting, ha!? 
Hope you like it :)

I started with Jaded Blossoms Candy Caddy metal die for the treat holder. The pattern papers I used are from a Recollection paper stack I have had for a while. 
I stamped the sentiment using My Creative Time's All You Need Is Coffee stamp/die set. This set is so fun! It has such cute sayings and fun little dies to match :) The coffee mugs are from this set to...cute, ha? 
I added some fun ribbon and button all from Making Memories. I also used Trendy Twine's tickled pink to tie on a twine bow. I finish by filling the little slider box with yummy chocolates! Who doesn't like chocolate with their coffee?! Yum! 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) DoubleClick Challenge-Use Pink
2.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #85 Anything Goes
3.) DL.ART October Linky Anything Goes
4.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
