As usual, my card is quick and easy.  “Piggy” is watercolored using stampin’ pads and an AquaPainter.  I just love these colors together!

Have a stamp happy day. Jackie Bolhuis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

What a whirlwind life has been in May!  Seems like somedays I forget where my home is!!  I began the month traveling to Cedar City, Utah to attend Jami’s graduation.  She received her Masters of Professional Communication degree.  So very proud of my daughter and all she has done and who she has become!  It was also very bittersweet as we left Cedar City afterwards.  I have had one or both daughters attending school there for the past 7 years.  It was like a 2nd home to our family.  There have been many trips to Utah over the past years and as we drove out of town, I realized I just might never be back.

If you are ever looking for a place to travel, SOUTHERN UTAH is incredible.  Over the past years we have visited and hiked in at least 6 different National Parks and several State Parks.  The beauty is incredible and you will be awe struck!  I honestly think it is my favorite spot in the whole United States!

Thank you Jessica for being the adventurous child of mine, who out of the blue chose to attend Southern Utah University.  None of us had ever heard of it until you found it online and decided that is where you would go to school.  I may have questioned you then, but am so grateful for your independent spirit that never holds you back!

Jackie's trip to Utah

Good-bye Southern Utah–you will always have a special place in my heart!
