More than one fold - FFFC #122

Good morning my fabulous friends! I hope everyone is doing great. I am trying to keep myself busy and I am doing such a good job, I am still giving the final touches to my daugther's apartment, I want to create something special for her that has my signature, so I am trying, and let me repeat, trying to build an end table using palletes. I will let you know how that goes...LOL.
Well, Friday is finally here! YAY! I don't know why I like Friday so much. Perhaps, because the weekend is almost here or could it be because there is a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges.

Thanks for all the things you do and for just being you...

Good morning everyone! The weekend is finally here, I don't why, but weekends make me so happy...LOL! I want to share with you a few of the mini albums and cards I made for Mother's day.  Today, I am showing you a mini album I made for my mother. I used this Mo Manning image because it reminds me of her with two of her grand-grandchildren. I used a lot of green because it is her favorite color.  All the pages and pockets are filled with pictures of her two daughters, including me, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.  She loves pictures, so she just loved it, which made me soooo happy.  Take a look at the mini album, I hope you enjoy it.

A Picture Perfect Birthday

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day if you live in the U.S.! Today I present to you a tri-fold card I made for my youngest son's birthday. He turned sixteen years of age and I can't believe how fast time is flying! It's like yesterday he was a baby in my arms, and today he is a teenager that's too big for me to carry. My baby is becoming a man. Next week school will be over for this year and that means that he will be a junior coming August. Will someone please make time stop and let me enjoy his company for a couple of years before this happens!!! I know, this is not possible. But I can always dream, right? Well, enough of that. Here is the card that I made with lots of love for this joyous occasion.
