I'm Back!!

Hello My Crafty friends,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!! We spent our Thanksgiving site seeing and eating lots of great food in Vancouver, Canada!!!  The Canadian people were just the nicest and certainly made us feel welcome!!  The weather was very cold but, I loved wearing long coats and scarfs. We got back yesterday and so glad to be back home even though it was nice to indulge in great food, a beautiful stay at the Shangri- La Hotel which was just beautiful not to mention the SPA was like HEAVEN!! The highlight for us was seeing the Olympic Torch and taking pictures.   We were so lucky to have seen the Torch light up since, Vancouver was hosting the CFL which is like to the NFL and is the reason the torch was light up.  OK, so another highlight was eating at an Indian restaurant called Vij's it's known to be the #1 Indian restaurant in the world and if you all know Giada from The Food Network well, she has been there and is how I learned about the place! The food and the service was AMAZING my husband who has never had Indian food and is very picky with his food LOVED it!!  I missed crafting and all of you and thank you for stopping by and leaving comments on my scheduled posts!!  I can't wait to get back into my studio and start creating some projects to share!! Thank you for visiting and until next time, Enjoy some of our pictures from Canada!!
My son was having fun and it was thumbs up for every picture LOL!! This was the view from around the corner from the Torch which was called Canada Place!
My two favorites guys taking in the view!!
Doesn't this picture of the city look like a postcard? Just beautiful!!
This was outside Vij's Restaurant
Some of these photos are from Stanley Park
This tree is over a 1000 years!  It's huge looking!!
