Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom flew in on her birthday to visit. It was her present to herself and not a surprise since I was holding all 4 of the grandkids hostage. After a couple of weeks with the nieces here, she was definitely needing some little kid hugs. She is staying 2 weeks with us--long enough to celebrate Zack's birthday and the 4th of July! Yay, us!

I took one look at Kazan's Sketch 29 from 2s4u and just couldn't think card for Mom's birthday. Instead, I thought mini album. With a crazy week, I wanted to make Mom an album, but I needed to do it quickly. This sketch was PERFECT. A few minutes with my circle punch, a sprinkle of glitter, and an old paintbrush and I was d0ne. It really was a 15 minute project.
