Happy Birthday Mum!

It's my Mum's birthday today, happy birthday, Mumma!
I was a bit sad because I wanted to go and visit Mum for her birthday, but it was just too close to when I go back to school, so would be really hard to do organisation wise....
I cheered up, though, when I found out her best friend, Aunty Lyn was visiting. These ladies have had such a wonderful friendship, it is amazing that it has lasted nearly 39 years!!!! It's a tribute to them, really, because their lives have certainly not been static in that time!
I love how they are always there for each other, and look at most situations with such humour and good spirits!
Here is a Layout I did as a bit of a tribute to the two women who have influenced my life so much.....


I've also been doing a little bit mor scrapping wise, I made another layout using some of the Prima Little Guy Papers. I love this photo of Connor, he has grown up so much - certainly no longer a baby!



I was inspired to make these fridge magnets by the cover of Creative Keepsakes magazine. I love this fresh, whimsical range from Sassafrass Lass.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
