Birthday Card - Memorable Moments

I am working on some Birthday cards and always have a creative block making cards for young men.   I purchased the set, Memorable Moments a few months ago to make a 70th Anniversary card, so I pulled out the set and started playing around with making a background with the numbers.   I stamped the Happy 33rd Birthday and cut out with the labels framelit since the stamp in the set matches the framelit.   When I was going to cut a larger framelit, I decided to go thru my box of punches and cut outs from framelits.   This box is one of my organizing tips so I don't waste anything!   Whenever I am working on a project, card and I punch out or cut out using the Big Shot, and don't use those items, I put them in a stamp case and save them til the box is full, then I give the box to someone who places an order when I have the box full.  It can take months to fill the box, almost a year now.   So, I found this Lucky Limeade window frame framelit and it fit perfect, just a bit larger than the stamp image.   I used some snail to adhere them together and added some dimensionals to add it to the card.  A super quick card.

I don't know why all my photos are being add on the side, the picture is not taken like that, but as soon as I choose, upload, the photo turns.!!!  Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
I have a Stampin' Gift to the first person who messages me with an answer.

Stamping in Florida....a little

I am down in Florida vacationing with my daughter, Robyn so I decided not to do a Stampin' Class while here this time.   My Mom and I will get in a little stampin' time though.   We did the Stampers Club cards and projects for May and one of the ones from April too.   I had made a bookmark a few months ago and thought my Mom might want to make one too.   I cut the smaller tag from the now retired, Two tags BS die and brought them with me to Florida.   My Mom, daughter, Robyn and I each made one.   They turned out cute and we have been using them.   I want to make some more when I get home, but using something not retired.

Here are our bookmarks:

 For some reason some of the pictures turned sideways and I have spent way too much time trying to turn them around.   The top one with the coconut drink is Robyn's, the next one is mine and the one on the bottom is my Mom's.  They were so so simple to make.

 My Mom worked on a spiral notebook today, The flower is from one of the new Hostess Only Sets in the new catalog.  She used some of the Delicate Details Lace tape along the bottom.
 Inside she used some of the new washi tape.
 and even stamped on some washi tape too.

Swimming with the Manatees in Florida

I am in Florida with my daughter, Robyn.  We are visiting family and vacationing.   Today we went to Crystal River and Swam with the Manatees....  We went thru Capt Mike's and had Capt Rick today.   It was AWESOME!!!

Here are a few pictures:

This was taken by Capt Rick, Robyn and I hanging out in the water, waiting for the manatees to swim under us.

 Robyn got this great picture of the nose of one of the manatees we swam with today.
 Here I am petting one of the manatees, there were many out there today and they put on a show.  A few dolphins came nearby to get a snack of some fish...It was so COOL...
 Me and Robyn on the boat heading back to shore.

It was a Great Experience, one I will never forget.
