February Happy Birthday ~SOUS Word Art DC Challenge~

February Happy Birthday

 I'm looking forward to sharing this card with you guys today! Thought it was something a little bit different! =)
 This guy is for Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Challenge…Word Art!
 I love this challenge because of the incredible options out there, the creative imagery! Oh so much! Just even thinking vinyl projects (which I've never taken on myself!) Anyways, really loving the DT projects and excited to see what our participants make!

 After my project I have some things to share about my weekend away with my hubby =)

 So I may have mentioned my husband and I were going to a marriage retreat. We had an incredible weekend away! Was even worth both he and I being sick this week! =( 
 I don't share photos enough so thought I would share some! 

 We stayed at the Babbling Brook Inn.

We had our own personal balcony next to the water wheel and waterfall. Very romantic =)

 The highlight (*she chokes these words out*) of our weekend was during our lunch break. We grabbed sandwiches and headed to the beach...don't get out your binoculars but we DID end up at a nude beach! Gasp! What a way to loose your appetite! LOL! I further embarrassed my hubby by telling the whole retreat what we did when they asked if anyone did something exciting during lunch! *Blush*

Vintage Faith Church of Santa Cruz hosted our weekend away with Ted Cunningham! I literally have never been so touched by a speaker before, or had SO much fun! He was beyond hilarious but exceptionally real and seeing someone (particularly for me, a man) so passionate about marriage. It warmed my heart! I would HIGHLY suggest you look him up. He's also an author and has some amazing books, very worth reading!

 A big thanks to Cornerstone Church, Livermore for setting us such an incredible event!
