Time seems to be Flying these days!
I Have been Neglecting My Wonderful Blog Friends!
Its Time for Me to Get on the Ball and Visit with you again!
This Little Sweetpea is my Mother when she was 4 years old!
She will be turning 80 Soon
and we are having a
Surprise Birthday Party
for her in June!
She will Be most Definitely be Surprised
because her Birthday isn't until
the End of August!
We told her that we are having a Family BBQ
when my Brother arrives from Alaska that day so we didn't
Scare the Daylights out of her. We will just have some Added Guests.
Looking Forward to it and I can't think of Anyone
who Deserves a Party in their Honor more than My Mother!
I Have been Diligently
Making Special Invitations to Send out as Keepsakes.
I was Cutting so Much Paper for awhile that you couldn't see the Floor!
I Used Multiple Layers of Images.
The Lacy Edge came from a French Holy Card
from Karen of the Graphics Fairy. I used my scalloped scissors to give it the Lace Border Effect. Then a Layer of Lovely Blue Paper and Her Picture that I actually Transferred Digitally on the Lacy Background Paper.
You Know me! I can't just Stop there!
I added the Butterfly and the Poem!
The Label the Poems is Printed on is from Karen as Well.
It is a French Perfume Label !I coveredthe Graphics Because I thought the
Detailing of the Label itself was Perfect for my Poem!
This Is my Mothers Graduation Photo!
She Graduated from High School in 1950 in a little Town
called Blooming Prairie!
Their High School Team name was the Blossoms!
Yep, The Blossoms!
Apparently their Foot Ball Team was Pretty Tough!!
It Kinda Makes me think of the Johnny Cash song 'A boy Named Sue'
I cannot tell you How Many Butterflies I Cut out.....
It was in the Hundreds though!
I Know..I Know.. There is No Hope for Me! Lol!
I Love Butterflies!
I Love Butterflies!
