Here and Now.......

Is it really almost over???  We are on Day 4 already!!
I had to skip out on Tuesday's hop...
with no more excuse than life just got in the way
and I was out for the day on Monday...SICK!!!
The thought of even getting up to walk to my scrapbook room
took my breath away.....and let me tell you.....I find my sanity in my scraproom so I knew there was something wrong!!!
But....I was back at it last night...
I have to admit...I think
Here and Now is my FAVORITE set...
its about life!!!
Its about being in the moment.... here and now....
I've had MANY of those moments....
but this moment in my layout really stands out in my mind
I love dolphins...and I love vacation....
and even better yet...
I LOVE to see dolphins on vacation!!!
I only ever thought I would SEE them....I never thought that I would be KISSED by one (shhh...dont tell my spoiled dog Abby), heck I even danced with this dolphin.
This dolphins name is Lucy...and she is a "resident" at
Dolphin Cove in Grand Cayman. 
And...she is one AMAZING Dolphin!!!!!

I used 3 of the stamps from the Here and Now set....
I could have used ALL of them....I love them ALL!!
I used...
Glimmer Glam, Jillibean Corrogated Alpha's, Primas, SU! Buttons and Cardstock...and I am clueless on the paper line...I guess its one of the 10,000 sheets that I had in my room...and it fit the photo perfect. 

I keep saying that we are doing RANDOM drawings for stamp sets..
But I dont think that I have been the lucky one to give away a set yet...
SOOO...maybe just MAYBE since this is MY FAVORITE set
I will get to draw today...
Leave me a comment....and I see a winner coming tomorrow!!!
(talk about letting the cat out the bag huh!!)

I am sending you back to the Ippity Blog.....
I am the last blog today....
