Happy Mother's Day
And what a lovely one it has been. I had my favorite breakfast of Kingsmill Seeds and Oats bread, toasted with butter and Marmite. Yes I am a Marmite girl, it is one of the few strong tastes I like, perhaps because it is so salty and although I don't put salt in my cooking I do put it on my meals once I have dished them up!
The rest of the day was spent doing some office work for David and taking some photos in readiness for a little digi page I have planned and will maybe get done tonight whilst watching tv with the family.
I finished my Mother's Day bouquet of flowers card for David's mum. I count myself lucky with the mil I have, a lot of how she is has made David the man he is and I am very grateful to her. The printed elements on this card are Cute Circles, Ornate Frames and Autumn Apples Polka Dot Papers - all by Shimelle Laine and from 2 Peas in a Bucket.
Also I photographed the second page for my Celebrate Life album and the prompt was to us scraps of paper. I made a 5 x 5 grid, used a square decided on the size of my photos, printed them out and stuck them to the page and then used a punch to make squares to fill in the remainder of the space. Finally I used a flower punch and scraps of paper to decorate the squares and then put a brad into the center of each one - two prompts in one (using metal and scraps of paper).
Reasons to be cheerful:-
1. I have had a lovely relaxing day.
2. Although I had the Something From Almost Nothing class for Mother's Day, Gracia says that there is something else for me but it is winging its way from Play.com as we speak - oooooh more surprises :)
3. Scrapping in front of the tv without making any mess can only mean digi scrapping and I do love digi scrapping, not as much as paper scrapping but it is fast becoming a close second.
