U light me up!/ Haul

Happy Monday!!!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, our family got together for a meal that I prepared, we are talking homemade sweet and sour meatballs, rice, Kale , broccoli, Lobster rolls and a huge roast, yes I was a busy bee.
Do you have that certain someone in your life that manages to elevate your mood as soon as you  hear their voice? This is the perfect card for such a person, why not tell them they light you up?, that is exactly what I plan to do only I can't reveal their name, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!
I used Paper Made Bakery April's Kit for this card... I love the stamps that come with this kit from Fresh Squeezed Stamps... the lanterns are part of this stamp set, I stamped and fussy cut them and used 3D dots to raise them. I also added liquid embossing to creating the lighting effect, hehe!
 Here is a closer look
The Haul from Halifax!
I didn't spend very much money at all for I hit incredible sales, I mean up to 75% off!!
I also found a store in Pictou, NS, a dollar store but not your typical one , this store had everything...
Have a looky!!!
Two 50 page 12"by12" pattern paper packs at $4.00 each!!!  

 Lattic punch for only $13 dollars!!


Lastly I want to show a couple of pictures of Michael on his trip and when he got home, he has a new hat and he is quite proud of it, he picked it out himself.
 On the 6th floor in the parking garage

hahaha... look at that is getting harder to take pictures of Michael for now he likes to be silly..this was a mild form of can see the badness, LOL  Love it!!!
Have a fantastic day and I can't wait to get by to visit you all later today!!!!
