Happy Mothers Day Ladies !!

I hope you have all a lovely day and been treated like Princesses.

It's been very quiet here at home.  OH has gone off to a Motor Bike Boot Sale [I didn't know Motor Bikes had boots, but then what do I know].  DD came back from Hastings this afternoon and has now gone off to work to get all the unsold Mothers Day Cards off the shelves and reload with Easter Cards.  Just had a conversation with DS1 [who is at Uni in Wales] and he's feeling pretty glum.  Struggling with the academic side of Uni.  Unfortunately he takes after me, learns better with hands on and not text books.  DS2 is glued to his computer games.  So, all in all a very quiet day in the Matty household.  Even the cats have disappeared for the day.

I toodled off to Mums this morning with her Mummys day flowers and her prezzie for her birthday, which is tomorrow.  I made her a mini album, with baby photos, from when I was a baby with my Great Grandmother through to mum and dad being first time Grandparents etc.,  Each photo has a hidden tag behind it with info such as who, what where and when on it.  I also put a condensed family tree inside the front cover and a couple of poems dotted on a couple of spare pages. Hope she likes it.

I used Basic Greys June Bug papers.  Made the little lace flowers and punched all the little paper flowers.  The roses came from Hobbycraft.

Going to try and post a video slide show of it, so fingers crossed.
