Happy Mother's Day!

Aren't these girls adorable? They are mine! We recently took part in a fundraiser that was done by our MOPS group. A photography studio came to church and took these black and whites and touched it up with a bit of color. The fun thing is that it cost just $10 and you got a 10x13 for that price. BUT, if you sold 15 sittings, you got a $150 package for free. Of course I sold the packages. This shot is the one that was done for the 10x13 and I plan to put it over the fireplace. I realized looking at this how much Kira (4) and Megan (8) look alike.
Anyway, this is what I made for my mother in law for Mother's Day. It is a cheap cardboard coaster (like the kinds you get at restaurants) which I covered with a sheet of Basic Grey's paper from their Blush Collection. I LOVE THIS COMPANY'S PAPER! I used Modge Podge to stick it on and then added my photo matted on Sage Shadow and Barely Banana. I used some pewter hardware and then added the flower in the corner (cut with my Cuttlebug). I stuck a magnet on back and was completely pleased when it was done. Hope she likes it!

Mom loves it! She told me so. I like it, too. I totally wish we lived in Michigan so I could scrapbook and stamp with you. Maybe one day.... The girls are getting so big. Love -
