Mother's Day

I love Mother's Day!  I love the big lavish surprises that Mother's Day sometimes has in store - jewelry, spa app'ts, etc.  But I also love the low key, hang around in your pajamas, being spoiled by little boys and enjoying the company of your family playing games kind of Mother's Days too!  That's the kind we had today! 
Andy got called out for the ambulance in the middle of the night so I was expecting the day to be very uneventrul since I figured he'd be sleeping most of the day.  Much to my surprise (and a little earlier than I would have liked - LOL) I was greeted by Andy and 3 little boys with a tray of coffee, toast, eggs, hashbrowns and bacon in bed.  Wowsa, that is ALOT of food to eat when you first wake up!  I shared most of it with the little boys whom always seem hungry and treated myself to a bit of coffee and a piece of toast.  Then I laid in bed until about 9 when I decided it was time to get up and take on the day.  The rest of the day was spent relaxing and playing games with the boys.  What a great day to spend at home with my 5 favorite people surrounding me!!! 
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms - and to my own Mom too!  I hope you all had wonderful days surrounded by those you love being spoiled and enjoying their company!! Pin It

Pretties Wednesday Challenge 102

Welcome back for another Prettie Challenge.  This week - as every first Wednesday of the month is our sketch challenge by Frances.  Here is a pic of the sketch for you:
We are using Story Time Sophia or Aloha Sophia this week and both of them are available in the Pretties Store for 35% off!  Here's my take on the sketch:
Its hard to see but I used a piece of double sided tape to make a border of glitter where the dp meets the blue.    There is also glitter on all the flowers.  Now hop on over to see Jules and what she's made for you! Pin It

Today's the day!!  May Day and our Paper Pretties Release!  All of the Prettie Girls have previews for you today and you can see them all in one place on the Paper Pretties' home page.
I'm previewing one of our new digi images and I just LOVE this little guy!  Introducing Bath Time Cooper & a new rubber sentiment - Bubbles Everywhere.  This sentiment works great with both Bath Time Cooper and Bubble Time Sophia.
I added a bunch of liquid applique to make the bubbles.  This little guy is too cute!
