Happy Mother's Day.

What a wonderful day I have had. I spent time with my In Laws for lunch this afternoon and received a beautiful card, some flowers and some very special gifts. My hubby ended the day with an easy & light supper for me and here I am playing around on my computer, editing some of my favorite pics from today. :)
It really can't get much better.

Little Man surprised me these flowers on Friday from school and I am FAIRLY certain I will hang on to them forever. : ) I brought them home on 2 buses and was terrified I was going to drop them, break them or ruin them somehow. I have photographed them 'just in case'.

I also have a few LOs to share from the LIITD May kit "Honey & Broom Grass".
This kit is chock full of the new Pink Paislee collections and WOW is all I have to say!

This LO is of my friend Heather & I hamming it up for the camera on New Year's Eve.
I was SO glad she and her hubby could make it-we had a lot of fun. (And isn't she just adorable??)

All items from May Kit at LIITD EXCEPT Chipboard alphas.

Sorry for the glare on this one-the lighting conditions were NOT optimal today. :)
The fancy design behind the photo was fussy cut from the paper and then cut in half. I also went a little nutso
and added seed beads & sequins to this. I also have to say that the brads paired with the cork board elements are a really nice contrast on a page.

This is proof that I HATE to commit (especially when it comes to sticking things on my page). I matted my chipboard alphas to black cardstock and then fussy cut about 2 mm border around each letter. I then over lapped some alphas using pop dots for dimension. 
Sequin & bead close-up.
All items from kit EXCEPT chipboard alphas, beads, sequins & Mini alphas (cosmo cricket)

This is a Mother's Day Card that I made.
(Ribbon, alphas & black cardstock NOT from kit)

And Lastly, this is just a simple card I threw together to keep in my card stash for  'just-in-case'.

I have one more project to share but it is uploading upside down for some reason,
so I will have to try to fix it and post it later this week.
Have a FABULOUS week!

Thanks for stopping by!
