Happy Tuesday :)

Good morning friends!

I'm just ust sitting here listing to the coffee brew, patiently awaiting that 1st cup, and then I'll be heading up to the studio for a day full of button making.

I want to share with you a little something that made me smile :)
I came across this print by Studio Mela on Etsy yesterday. I don't know exactly why, but the quirky, yet sweet message totally caught my attention and put a smile on my face! Hopefully it will do the same for you all!

Where ever you are, what ever you are doing........I hope this post finds you feeling happy! If not, take 10 and think about all the things in life that you are happy about..........and get happy..lol!
Have a great Tuesday friends!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

I just came home from having a brunch with my mom at The Blue Olive. Steve, Dad, Mom and I all sat around a big table and enjoyed several cups of coffee and a great brunch. It was simple and nice :) Love ya mom!

In lieu of Mother's Day, I thought I'd share some Mom layouts and projects I've created in the past for my Mom and about my mom :)

-A few years back, I altered this Cosmo Cricket cigar box adding hinges by 7-Gypsies and painting and distressing it. I added a transparency window and the title to my card/box. I used rub-ons to create her initials, "RLC" and the pink paper pulled out in an accordion fashion where I wrote the poem that went along with the title and my own little message :) She now displays this in her scrapbook room. I still love how it turned out :)

- I created this layout about how proud I was of my mom going from raising her girls to a banker and a darn good banker :)

- This layout was created a loooooong time a go for Right At Home Scrapbooking in Massachusetts. I went to town cutting up the paisley Junkitz paper and surrounded my mom's pic with all of the crazy doodles. Yes, this was when I was into doodling on EVERYTHING..lol. I still do, but it has toned down a lot. Still fun though?

- This layout's photo and title says it all. Inspired by mom's love of her dogs and taking them out for walks. Though, sadly shortly after this layout was created the sweet German Shepard in the photo, Miss Daisy.....passed away. So this was a perfect way to remember those walks always :)

Happy Mother's Day and Be sure to tell your mom you love and appreciate her!
