You Shine! More challenges this week!

I'll be away next week visiting my grandson and 2 very large Great Danes in Niagara Falls while my daughter and her husband go on their Southern Caribbean cruise. Poor kids, having to leave the cold and snow to hit the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Can you imagine? Can't help but feel bad for them.
So while lamenting for them I felt a sudden wave of creativity  and decided to join in on the Peachy Keen Challenge. Then I found more! 4 challenges in one week.........what has come over me?
