Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mothers day to all of my mom friends!  I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful mother.  She taught me the value of hard work and doing things for yourself, standing up for what you believe in and not playing games, and balancing all of the things life throws at you with grace and poise.  Because we live so far apart we don't talk every day but we talk once or twice a week for HOURS at a time.  We have to be careful because she gets home from work late and if we don't watch it our conversation that starts at 8:00 PM will go on 'till 11:00 PM and we'll both be struggling to get up in the morning.  I can't be with my mom today but it's okay because I will be with her later this week, and I'm so excited.

To all of the moms out there - have a lovely mothers day.  I hope your children realize and show you what a blessing you are to them and also that you feel how very blessed you are to be a mother.

But wait! Haynay Designs has more iNSD goodies for you!

Haynay Designs did the fabulous soft and pretty collab grab bag that I showed you earlier, but she also did an amazing Adventure themed grab bag for iNSD as well.  All of you mouse loving scrappers will definitely need this one.. think bottle caps, and balloons, and waterfalls, and zepplins, and adventure... see where I'm going with this?!?!  Here is the preview of the 4 awesome pieces that make up this adventurous grab bag:

Here is the page I created using all 4 pieces of this grab bag.  I chose the elements that had a flying theme, but there are soo many adventure pages you could do with these products!

It's iNSD and there are sooo many fun things going on!

Haynay Designs and WMSquared Designs have teamed up to create a GORGEOUS collab grab bag! It is so chic, and so elegant, and is perfect for all of those pictures of your little darlings in their rough and tumble phases or their prince and princess phases.  The preview is lovely but really, you need to see everything in grab bag because it is amazing!

Here is my page with it.  I don't have a little prince or princess so I thought of the most princessy pictures I have and came up with this!

The grab bag preview shows a lot of the soft and pretty stuff, but let me tell you there are some bolder colors that will coordinate fabulously with your soft and pretty looks!  

Go grab it now while it's all value bundled up for iNSD!
