Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the special ladies out there! I would like to take a moment to share with you some of the lovely surprises that I received today.  I am a mother to 3 wonderful little boys and I have loving husband, I always feel very blessed to have them in my life but on a day like today I am reminded of just how blessed I am.
This morning I came down stairs to find a gift bag and some cards waiting for me on the kitchen table.  This is what was inside…

My best friend also dropped off a card this afternoon, which was a wonderful surprise and also very touching :)

A quick journal entry about today

A Cool place to keep all my Mother's Day cards :)

 I have been wanting a smash book for some time now and my husband got me one!!! I always thought that this would be a fun way to scrapbook about the fun everyday things that happen.  I also got the date stamp that goes with it  :)  I really love painting my nails so it was nice to receive a new nail polish… it is really really cool!!!

At our church this morning they handed out flowers to all the ladies, so my pretty flower will live on the kitchen table for the next little while. 
We rounded out our Mother’s Day with a brunch with my mom, my sister and her two kids and my cousin his wife and their children. It was really nice being all together. My cousin  lives 4 hours away so I  was really happy he could make it!

Thanks for stopping by,

A Paper Bag Mini

Hello everyone, I hope that you are having a great weekend so far :) I have been working on a paper bag mini for what seems like eternity now but I am happy to say that I am finished, and just in time !!!  
I am so happy because my cousin and his family are in town this weekend so I can give it to her in person, rather than mailing it out.  I can show her all the journaling spots and giver her everything she will need to fill it up.
I created a video for my YouTube channel showing the mini album so I have posted it here for you to see too:

Mother's Day Card Kit

Over the past couple of weeks we have been very busy! I have been sick for about 3 weeks and went to the doctor to find out that I had Bronchitis and Sinusitis  L I am beginning to feel better but we have had a lot of activities going on with our kids and also with ourselves!! We have just been on the run for about 2-3 weeks now!
With everything going on I have not had that much time to craft, but when I do I have been making a mini that I am going to give away as a gift.  This mini seems to be taking an eternity to make…lol  I think that is why I have always made more cards, I can finish them pretty quickly!!
The reason for this post is to show you a Mother’s Day card kit that I made for the little Beavers in my group. I am a beaver (Scouts) leader and this week we are getting ready for Mother’s Day.  We have only 5 beavers this year but I know that one will be away tonight so I made four cards that the Beaver’s will put together tonight. We have a pretty full meeting so I made it as easy as possible. When they are done putting it together they can write mom a message on the inside J

The card is an A2 sized card and it has been embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The blue scallop is cut from Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and the flower is from Flower Shoppe . The stamped sentiment from  a Impression Obsession stamp set Sentiments 1.
I think that it will be a great night tonight !

I hope that you are having a great day today J
