ScrapbookSteals MWM Turquoise #2 and #3

I have sure gotten a little bit behind lately posting my MWM's, and just keeping up with my life.

Life just seems to get in the way sometimes.  I spent a wonderful Mothers Day at my daughter Kelsie, and her husband Paul's home.  We did a little planting of some pretty potted plants, and little Miss Blake took me for a tour of the neighbourhood, on the little Barbie Bike that I got her for her 2nd Birthday!! She is growing so darn fast.  I can't believe she is going to be 3 years old this summer. It was a great day and spending it with my 3 daughters made it even better! 
PS the strawberry cake Kelsie made was AMAZING!!!!  And Lacey made a delicious apple pie.....such talented bakers my girls are!!!!  

 Heavenly Apple Pie

 Blake and I playing Angry Birds LOL!!!

 Amazing Strawberry Cake

And Blake showing us her silly "ice cream" face!!!

One last quick THANK YOU to my kids for the best Mothers Day gift!!!
You guys always know the perfect thing to get me.  And for the second time this year I was completely surprised!!!! Love you all so much!!!!

I LOVE how this layout turned out.  I was lucky enough to have some time to scrap with my favourite scrapbook buddy and friend Liz.  I always seem to love my layouts just a little  bit more more when I create them while having a good laugh with great company.  Thank You dear Liz!!!!
