Happy Mom's Day weekend to all the mom's and grand-ma's out there! Do you all have anything planned for the weekend? Hubby is taking me, Alexa and her boyfriend to the movies to see "Something Borrowed" tonight cuz I liked the book a lot :) Riley and a friend are seeing "Thor" as they did not want to see a "chick-flick" (not sure hubby does either, but he promised, lol). This is Alexa's boyfriend first time having an outing with the Dean Family, hee hee---we'll (or I'll) make sure to initiate him correctly at dinner, LMBO. Alexa is sooooooooooo worried and she SHOULD be, LOL! We are a very strange bunch but to know us is to love us (wink)! Then we are planting new shrubs on Saturday around the patio and mulching--not a ton of fun but I love pretty landscaping! I told the kids to buy me a tree that I could plant so that's what they are doing and I love it! To all the mom's out there--I do believe there is NO HARDER job than being a parent but especially a mom. A 24-hour, 7 days a week job that never stops, quits or gets easy and rarely any vacations from it that's for sure. We NEVER get to leave our "work" at the office right? LOL! So I hope all the mom's/grand-ma's out there take the day to enjoy, relax and rest just a bit for once! I know I will--I'm gonna do some more reading in bed and hopefully get my Dunkin' Donut (boston creme only) in bed with a BIG glass of chocolate milk--that's all I want, LOL! And of course I will be calling my own mom (so get ready mom, lol) on Sunday as well. I ordered her present but it will be LATE as I forgot to add an important something so it's coming (hear that mom)! My mom is the best! Hopefully she's taking the day off too!

-7 Kids has some new goodies you might wanna check out! The NEW Theresa Collins StampMaker machine HERE and all FOUR NEW Basic Grey Collections HERE (oh so yummy)!
I used the My Minds Eye paper pad "Fine & Dandy"(15% off right now)--love the soft colors and delicate patterns. I distressed the edges of the paper for a bit of shabby-chic effect. The pearl swirl is by Prima and bow was done with my Bow Easy. The matting behind the image was done with my Spellbinders Lacey Circles. CHECK out the new My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pads and the new ones by Echo Park too--HERE! (shhh I just ordered them ALL cuz I cannot help myself, lol, and I am not supposed to be getting new paper) The sentiment is from PTI.
The image was colored with Copics BG72,BG11,BG10/R21,R20/C3,C1,C00 and then I coated the teacup and saucer with Diamond Glaze to make it glass shiny! All the wings and the water got some Stickles for sparkle. Such a cutie!
Ok--I wish you all a wonderful weekend spent with friends and family! I'll see you back here on Monday!
