A little something for Mom

Phew. It seems like this year is flying by for me. I can't believe it's already the end of May!

We do holidays around here without much fanfare. Mother's Day is no exception. Mom and I got to pick what exactly we wanted to do on our special day. It had been a while since we've all gone to the beach together, so we thought it would be nice to do that. We headed down to Pacific Grove to Asilomar State Beach. There are lots of little inlets there amongst the rocks where we always manage to do some beach combing. Mom and I plopped ourselves down in the sand and proceeded to pick up lots of little bits and pieces to use in our crafting adventures. Shells, driftwood, and bits of sea glass, too!

After that, we headed down to the small sandy patch of beach to walk and watch the sunset. The weather was perfect and there were lots of folks there to enjoy it. There always seems to be a bunch of dogs on that stretch of beach, too. I love watching them running along in the surf playing and splashing about, they always looks so happy! Naturally we had to snap a few pictures.

I used the oh so appropriate kit You're the Best Mom Bundle, a Collab from The Digital Scrapbooking Studio for my Mother's Day LO.


I thought this beautiful kit was also perfect for a picture I took of Mom in her new patio garden!

Pretty As A Peacock

I have to admit it, I love peacocks. There's just something about the beautiful colors in those feathers that capture my eye every time. So, naturally I was thrilled to work with the Pretty As A Peacock Bundle from Digilicious Designs! All of those great blues and purples with a ton of yummy accent colors, and even a perfect collection of glitter styles ta boot.
