Happy Mother's Day!!!

Hope everyone had a nice, enjoyable, relaxing day.

We were planning to crop yesterday, but I started having trouble with my van the other day; kept stalling so I didn't want to take a chance and go too far and have the van give out on me. So we made alternate plans...

Yesterday Lal and I spent the day together. She came over about noon and we cropped all day. I got 7 LOs done and Lal got like 13 done!!! We made a little trip to the Big Lots on Bandera and got some really cool goodies; MM shimmer alphas stickers and some Marcella by Kay chipboard letters all for $1!!! Then Lal treated me to some Mickey D's...LOVE those fries;) and we came home and ate and watched part of the movie Dan in Real Life that we rented the other day. It's a really good movie; funny:)

Lal stayed until about 11pm, so we got in a full day. It was TONS of fun. I'm going to consider that my Mother's Day since today everyone was so naughty:(

We did breakfast at Denny's where the service was not very good:( After that we did a little shopping around. I went to two different Big Lots, but they didn't have anything:( Then we went by M's where I got to spend on some goodies:) They were just putting out the K&Co. Berry Sweet line I had been waiting for them to get!!! I got the 12x12 specialty pad, chipboard adhesions, borders, glitter alphas and stickers, die cuts flowers, felt flowers and some other goodies:) I can not wait to scrap with those!!!

I also got a new charm from James Avery for my charm bracelet...oh and another box of Primas (one I didn't have:)

We went for lunch at Culver's where Mom's got a free sundae today. Too bad I don't like their Steve ate it...LOL...I got me some Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia at the corner store. MY FAVE!!! ;)

So here are all my new LOs to share:

This is Mattie's school pic from this year. I never know what to do with the school portraits, but I like the way this turned out. I got the idea off a LO I saw on 2 Peas, I think:) Papers are Rusty Pickle School Daze, Bazzill Edge cardstock and Lil' Davis chipboard letters.This is Victoria at our last yard sale. Steve always buy her snacks and drinks to sell. She LOVES it!!! Of course, she always ends up eating alot of it...LOL. This LO was inspired by a LO from Gina's blog. Thanks, Gina...of course yours is WAY better:) Papers are Sassafras Lass, AC and MME, Jenni Bowlin artisan mini paper and Lil' Davis chipboard letters.
This one is a lift off of 2 Peas. I just fell in love with the LO and this pic was PERFECT:) The pink solid paper is MME. Either Everyday Tango or Magnolia...can't remember which one. I used some Basic Grey rubons on it. The text paper behind the pic is MME Adore. Also used a sheet from the Noteworthy journaling pad, Petaloo flowers, Amy Butler die cuts, Make it Possible gold glitter chipboard letters, May Arts lace, Basic Grey Hang Ten ribbon and a chipboard "flourish" I bought at 911 some time back. Not sure who makes it, but I "colored" it with some gold paint.Pics of me and V in a photo booth at Fiesta Texas last year:) Papers are MM Garden Party, French Twist buttons, HS chipboard hearts, alphas and crown, Sweet Treats ribbon and MM tiny alphas.Love the funky look of this one. Papers are Elsie Roxie. Chipboard flower, arrow and "title" Friends are MAMBI, used some random buttons. The frame around the pic was one that Lal printed on the computer with some Doodle font. I LOVE it. She sent me the font some time back, but I guess the idea just never occured to me. I'll definately be doing this again.
Another lift off of 2 Peas. The papers in the original LO were Indian Summer which I SO want, but I improvised:) I used some Daisy D's Attic Heirloom, BG Infuse, MME Wild Asparagus and some DCWV "text" paper. Also used May Arts lace, MME die cut, HG paper flower, Prima journaling sheet and MM Love Story buttons. The large butterflies are cut with one of my Cuttlebug dies. The smaller ones I used my Martha Stewart punches. I covered a shipping tag in some random paper and used some black ric rac as well. The birds on the branch I cut using my Wishblade. I got the image of this really cool site that had tons of nice stuff.Last one:)...Pic of V at the pumpkin patch last year. Paper are BG Mellow, die cuts are Daisy D's. I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the green cardstock, May Arts lace, MME die cut "title", a couple of the Prima flowers I got at M's, Foofa La button and Imaginisce crotched bloom. TFL. I'm off to enjoy some peace and quiet now that the kids are in bed:)
