GETTIN' MY SCRAP ON!

Happy hump day all!! WOW! This week is flying by and I know it's because I am spending time with my oldest son Zach who is home for a couple of weeks before he begins his last year at the Naval Academy at the end of the month! I can't believe how grown he is! Ya know, lately things have been rough for me in the in-law department, and my son gave ME the talk last night that we as moms usually give to our kids when things are getting rough.  So, when I asked him how he got so smart, he said, "because you raised me mom". Talk about making a mother cry!!! I surely do love that boy!!!!  So, in keeping with my motherly love and feelings, I thought In would share my scrap page that I made of this past Mother's Day with my two kids still at home.  I used one of our new Simply Scrappin' kits called Love Birds(item 118707, pg. 178)- even though it is PERFECT for that special someone you are in love with, I think it can be used for any type of love so I used it here and I am very pleased with how this page turned out!  I love how easy this page came together because everything in the kit already coordinates so I was able to pull it together pretty quickly!  I am also thrilled that I can make so many pages out of one kit because I plan on adding some more from Mother's Day and I love that all my pages will coordinate so nicely together! What can I say? This page makes me HAPPY :-)  I love the colors, I love the theme, and I love that I can showcase this fun day so beautifully!  If you are interested in this kit, or any of the others we have available, you can order online on my website.  I love my SS kits so you will be seeing lots more where this one came from, lol!!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by, I am so glad you did! Now, I am off to blurf and then spend some time in the pool with my kiddos - great day!!!

Great page! Which reminds I'm soooo far behind in scrapping. Been making so many cards, just not enough time.
Thanks for the nice comments too.

i'm so glad you came by. i've been sooooo busy that lately i find the only way to get any visits in is to whoever leaves me a comment. my poor dashboard has been very neglected.

The page is special Alex but the photo of you & your son is more precious with the candidness of it-I can see the special relationship shine thru the photo-you should be proud.
