Vacation Pictures and Candy Winners!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! I have winners to announce for my blog candy, but first I have a few vacation pictures to share with you :) Originally, we were headed to Key Largo, but the hurricanes altered our plans. So we decided on San Diego, but on the way there in the RV, we ran into bad weather, including flooding, so we detoured North and ended up in beautiful Colorado.


Unfortunately, this was the view we had of the Rocky Mountains much of the trip as it rained most of the time. This was taken from one of our campsites.


Then one day, the sun broke through the clouds, creating this gorgeous rainbow!!


You can almost see it touching the ground.


The clouds started to break up, revealing blue skies and snow-covered peaks.


And finally you could see the mountain tops :)


We saw lots of wildlife, like this adorable rabbit.


We also saw mule deer, but I couldn't get a clear snap before they bounded away.


There were lots of antelope, but I couldn't get a closer shot of them from the RV.


There were elk everywhere in Rocky Mountain National Park, and in the town we stayed in, Estes Park.


I don't think she liked me taking a picture of her ;)




It was incredible to see these guys walking through the campground and the streets of the town!!


Thank you to everyone who visited my blog while I was away!! I appreciate it so much!! I'm still having trouble getting back into the swing of things. I've fallen behind on Facebook and Instagram. I hope to be back up to speed soon.


And now to announce the winners of the two Lemoncraft giveaways!! The winner of the Fresh Summer set is...


And # 67 is...
And the winner of the Christmas Carols set is...

And #37 is...

Congratulations, Sonia and Pamellia!! If you both send me your addresses (indymermaid @ gmail . com), I will get these in the mail to you!! Thank you all again for entering!! I have another exciting giveaway coming up very soon so I hope you'll stop back by!!

Have a great day :)

  19. Congrats to both winners! YAY! AND WOW! Your pictures look fantastic Lisa! Beautiful fresh air & Scenery... Couldn't ask for a more amazing trip! Glad your home and back to crafting... but vacations always seem to need a vacation after the fact, cuz you get so tired out from the long trip... Happens to me all the time.. I always need a second vacation to get everything caught up from my first vacation! LOL Have a wonderful day! :)

  43. Well really, you can't go wrong with Colorado so that was an acceptable detour! Believe me, if I could convince my husband to move out of this place, I'd be heading straight to the mountains!! My gosh, what a view! And look at all the wildlife you saw, wow! That rabbit is so adorable, and the mule deer are amazing, but what I wouldn't give to see some antelope or elk in the wild! Gorgeous creatures with their big antlers!

    I am just so excited to win one of your prize packages! Thank you so much for the opportunity! I am so looking forward to playing with some new Christmas papers! Congrats to Sonia as well!! hugs :)
