Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! We had a wonderful day yesterday for Brandy's Graduation. Lots of good pictures too. It was a nice graduation - few speakers and I was just amazed at how smooth it went. Brandy, of course, had to do a little dance when she reached the stage. She said she didn't all out dance across the stage as they had been warned that if they acted up too much they wouldn't get their degree - lol! Then my mother and sister and son all had a late lunch and visited here at the house before Brandy went off to be with her friends bemoaning the fact that she was the only graduate that hadn't already turned 21 so she was going to be left out of several parties (as a Mom probably for the best!)
Back to scrapbooking here a page I did this weekend with my sister's granddaughter's, Hailey and Katy, using Imaginisce and Core'dinations papers.

My husband and kids took me to a fancy restaurant for a late lunch today down on the River Walk - haven't been down there for years and it's really built up. Good seafood lunch though. Here's my card this week for the CPS challenge. Used the digital image from Delightful Inspirations this week and some American Crafts papers and Core'dinations cardstock - sticker is by SRM.

For the challenge over at Cardvarks this week I picked this sketch. Using a digital image from Sweet and Sassy I used some American Crafts and Core'dinations cardstock to make this card. The sticker is from SRM.

And of course I wanted to share some of the photos I took of Brandy yesterday. LOL on the way to the graduation I told Charlie - guess Brandy was to busy taking tests to remember she didn't have new dress for today - he said, Oh No - she's got a new one to the tune of about $85! LOL - that's my girl!
Thanks for stopping by - will have more cards later today I hope. Off to a special lunch with my family today - combo celebration of Brandy's graduation and Mother's Day!
