Happy Mother's Day!! :)

Just a quick post to say Happy Mother's Day!! We've just had a nice, relaxing weekend. My mom came yesterday morning and picked up Kadyn. They went yesterday to the California Train Museum to ride the train. I guess it turned out to be National Train Day so, that was a lucky coincidence! Then he spent the night there last night and they brought him home just a bit ago! It was nice to get some alone time but, the house just seems so much fuller with him here!

In other (pretty) happy news, I got a call on Friday from AT&T! They want me to start on the 28th so, I went yesterday and took my drug test and sent the stuff in for my background check. It is a bittersweet thing for me. In order for us to get to a better place, financially, I need to be working. But, I don't want to leave Kadyn either... :( But, it will all work out and that's what is important!

Well, I am off to spend some time with my guys!! Hope all of you Mommies have a great Mother's Day!!

Sharing some creations!

Hey there!! So, I just got onto a new CT, for Jill D-Zines. It's a hybrid spot so, I'm enjoying it! She creates cutter files so, I get to play with them on my Silhouette! I need to get ink for my printer and then I can print out papers and use the files!! But, here's what I've done so far. It's only been a week!

A treat bag and flowers, using her Bloomers! Digi-Cuts™

A paper layout, using her Curvy-Cuts Digi-Cuts™

I also host the monthly hybrid challenge at Plain Digital Wrapper. Since this month seems to be the true start of Spring here in Reno, and it's Mother's Day, I put together this bouquet for the challenge. Using 2 different flowers, I put them on cut up metal hangars and put them in my own popcorn box template.

I am currently out of ink so, I had to settle for a real paper version but, it all works the same!! If you would like to see how I did it, the challenge is HERE I picked up some other papers and plan on making 3 more of these, using only that second flower, this week, one for each Brain's and my mom, and one for a friend who just moved into her first apartment!
