Friday's my Mom's birthday, and the family's getting together at her house this weekend to celebrate. My brother and his family's in town and then heading west again. My sis-in-law Mary was made an offer she couldn't refuse and they're moving from Maryland to California, not far from where they lived a couple years ago. Since his move east, I've gotten used to his every other month visits, which I imagine will become more infrequent ... sigh
Mom's a crossword fan so I decorated a clipboard for her to provide a hard surface to work on them when she's not at a table. I love having a small notebook in my purse so I made her one to match the clipboard, then the card. The matched set's all based on Stamp Something's DRS Sketch Something and Sharon's new toys challenges. I used my new toy (my DH's Christmas present to me - a QK Silhouette) to create the snowflakes used on the inside covers of notebook and on inside of card (some sprinkled around photo as well). I made some snowflakes from Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock for my boss as part of her Christmas present but forgot to take pics. Of all the things I miss, I miss my mind the most, y'know?!
