Mother's Day Card

I saw several adorable flowerpot cards on Splitcoast sometime ago and thought this Mother's Day would be a great opportunity to create one for my Mom. As an avid gardener, florist, and scrapbooker, I knew she would appreciate this whimsical creation.
The flower pot and cardstock flowers were all created with my new "Walk In My Garden" cartridge from Cricut. I used distressing ink to give the pot an aged mossy effect. The butterfly was one of Tim Holtz's Grunge Board shapes that I slathered with white glue and covered with two different shades of pink glitter.

As usual this project took me a lot longer than I expected it to, but I had a lot of fun making it.

Skating Year End

Felicity received a medal with many of her skating friends for all her effort this past year. Her coach Janet (left) recommends she moves up to Canskate B group for next year. It thrills me that she puts so much effort and dedication into anything she does and that she isn't easily discouraged. Both her coaches and school teachers often comment on what a pleasure she is to teach as she is always eager to learn.

As determined as I am to catch up on my scrapbooking, I fall further and further behind. This layout is one I've been playing with for about a week and finally completed. At this rate I should be done scrapbooking Felicity's baby photos just in time for Baby X to graduate high school!!
