Mothers Day fun!!

I am having a lazy day so far. (that is a good thing, right?)

Yesterday was my annual trip with my mom & Sister. We usually go for a whole weekend, but since my sister is visiting and has the new baby, it would have been a little hard.

We have been doing this for I think 6 years now. It's our annual get away. The memories expo has always been so fun for us. Each year we get our photo taken at the A.C. Moore booth with the project of the year. This year, we had an added addition, She was such a good baby. She did not fuss much, and was very good. (Thanks Elizabeth Dawn for being a good girl)

I only did one make-n-take this year. They were about 8+ bucks and I thought that was crazy. In past years it was free and a sample of something you could make with the products they were selling.

This year I did one. It was a card. The cost was a dollar. I thought since I bought the products she was showing you would think it would be free. I am not cheap, but the cost of the stuff was annoying this year.

There were some stamp co. there this year. I only bought a few things. I can tell the economy is really hurting. The show was not as crowded and the cost of things were up, and I did not have as much to spend. I even came home with money. ( a major first) I found myself a lot more cautious than in past years. I usually buy what I want, and this year I was a lot more careful. Hopefully things will look up soon.

I only bought one sheet of pp this year. Another first. I figured I really did not need any,and the sheet I got had a mix of colors I wanted.

So, Here is the pic of my mom and sister, with Baby Elizabeth Dawn. I am in the reddish orange t-shirt.

I will post, my goodies and my card this week. I got really busy, so I still have the green post and the tutorial to do.

Does, anyone know how to do several posts, and make it so the post each day. I would be able to do that!!!

Sorry to hear the expo was not what you usually experience.
I'll e-mail you about the posting.
Have a great day today!

Beautiful picture Dawn!

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
