Mystic Paper, it ended up being a mini family reunion, birthday party and Heritage Scrapbook class all rolled in to one. My cousins had seen my book at Mystic and wanted to take the class. My Tucson Sister heard about the plans and came up with my niece to take the class too.
Along with lessons on how to use Distress Ink and Glimmer Mist we had cupcakes and hummed "Happy Birthday" to the birthday cousin. We hummed because she wanted to just forget the whole thing!

I bet you are wondering what I made using all those Jenni Bowlin Scalloped Note cards...
FLOWERS lots and lots of flowers.
Those scalloped edges were perfect petals.
and a few more flowers .
The large black edged die cut was a great base for a collage. the scalloped note card in this page holds the journaling
the red ribbon in my kit...also flowers
I cut out the black vine paper from my kit, layered on the die cut, along with a picture of my great aunt and some ephemera.

“The Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee. In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…” See Renee's blog: Circling My Head

Happy Mother's Day!
No I'm not lost...I have spent the last week in the flower shop designing floral arrangements for the holiday. It's not as crazy as Valentines Day, but it runs a close second. Hope all you Moms had a great day!
PS: Thanks to Suzzee Que on Flickr for the great image I used on my Mother's Day cards.
