Meeting Mickey

Crafting Ireland magazine featured one of my layouts on their blog last week.
You can see a small tutorial up on their blog *Here* :)

Hope all of you moms out there had a great Mother's Day!
I did. Mike took the kids to the grand opening of the Lego Store here in town.
We finally have one!
I was tempted to go, but then decided to stay home, just relax, and get caught up on
The Voice. :)
But when they came back, I received a few sweet gifts...
A store card from all of them with a gift card to Barnes & Noble (yay, books!)
A sweet card from Erin with her journaling handwritten by her teacher...
and her sweet little home made bowl.
And a one of a kind iris watercolor painting by Evan. His class had a walking field trip to the Botanical Gardens to draw flowers. Then they came back and added the watercolors. I have to say I love how their school includes art in the curriculum! They are very fortunate.

And I am so fortunate and blessed to be a mom to my two!
I will be back on Wednesday with a sketch layout!

  1. The gifts our kids make for us are such a treasure, aren't they? These are wonderful! I have a coiled pot just like that (but in purple) Alexa made me in first grade, I think. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Mary Jo. Congrats on the blog feature!

  10. I love that LO....I am documenting a Disney Trip later in the year, but have pretty much decided I am going to do it Project Life style. Your homemade gifts are fantastic...from your daughter's bowl to Evan's beautiful watercolor - I definitely that is frame worthy!

    1. What's sad is that he doesn't think it's good enough for a frame. He was not happy with it, but I think it is beautiful! :)
