Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!  I hope all you mothers had a nice Mother's Day!  I had a great day myself.  We had a lovely brunch with my mom, stepfather, dad and stepmom (yep, we're all one big happy family!).  And I got lots of wonderful snuggles and kisses and homemade goodies from my darling little girls.  For Mother's Day my hubby wanted to buy me the new camera lens I've had my eye on for a while now, but I wasn't sure if the cost is really justified.  Well, it doesn't matter at this point, because the freezer portion of our old refrigerator is on its last leg, so we have to go buy a new fridge today.  Fun, huh?  Since we have to make this big purchase, I decided to hold off on the lens for the while.  That means that my photos won't look any sharper, but at least I won't have to eat mushy ice cream anymore.  And as a girl who NEEDS her bowl of Dreyer's Grand Light ice cream every single night, mushy ice cream just wasn't workin' for me.  

I have a little share for the day.  I've really been into crocheting on my layouts again lately.  Here's one I made with all Prima goodies:

The wording says:  "My Wish for you is that you have as much joy in your life as you have brought to mine."    Here's a little close-up.  I curled back the paper and stuck some tulle and other netted fabric behind there.  I lined the curled-back paper with lots of Prima flowers:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great week!

I'm sorry that you didn't get your camera lens. But you're right, mushy ice cream is not so good.

Stacy, a long time ago that I can not find a scrapper that leave me open-mouthed in admiration. Not that I am a scrapper and will tlentosa impresisone me with anyone, not far from it. Is that although I am still in the beginning I look much, much, many blog, forum, shopping. The last time I saw a scrapper that I admired them so well was the Ingvild, who already attend the blog for about 8 months. Although I had seen a layout if I had never come here, but about one month spent more frequent the blog AMM and resolved to find blog designers there. You were the 3rd I saw! loved! I love ALL your layouts! Larissa's blog I know it's been a good time because I am Brazilian and I see everybody's blog. But his was the first time I came here to look at everything and I only found much inspiration.
I bought a kit of MMA this month, took about 20 days but cheogu and good! I'll have much material to work with my mind full of inspiration for coming here!
I loved knowing your blog, your work!
kisses!
