LPS Monday: Gettin' Sketchy Again...

Hey everyone!
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I had SUCH a great weekend!
On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to meet up with Janna and we spent the whole day at a beautiful LSS called The Keepsake Element that is about half way for both of us to drive in Bloomington, IL. We spent 8 hours (which went by WAY too fast!) laughing, chatting, and coloring...mostly laughing and chatting though LOL! I can't believe I forgot my camera!!! Oh well... Anyway, I think we were both a little embarrassed at how LITTLE we got done, but in the midst of our chit chat, we were hired to teach some classes together...how FUN is that?!?!? Stay tuned for details on that...if you can come out for it, we'd LOVE to have some locals and ANYONE who is willing to come out and hang w/ us!!!

Yesterday on Mother's Day my DH and family surprised me with a beautiful Champagne Brunch. Little did I know, 3 weeks worth of waiting lists and phone calls really paid off as it was the BEST brunch I've ever been to! The food was amazing, delicious, and the champagne fountain was gorgeous..as were the chocolate fountains for the kiddos...OH BOY do I have some funny pics of messy faces even at a place that was a bit more upscale LOL. That's ok...they definitely weren't alone hee hee! There were lots of kids and families celebrating the same thing we were...having the best job in the world and the utmost privilege...being a Mom.

I hope to share more photos later, but here is the gorgeous array of homemade gifts I received from my adorable kiddos. Can you say Heart MELTING????
I have another photo or two for you and that pertains to today's LittlePaper Shop Monday! Our own Cindy Haffner was awesome enough to share a sketch with us this week and we invite you all to play along!

Be sure to comment on the LPS blog as well as here if you play along to be eligible to win the digis so we can keep track of who's playing along. If you'd prefer to use SCS or PCP to upload your photo, just remember to use keyword LPSC15.



I used the adorable Katie Swing image to create my card based off of Cindy's sketch and I just love her. She's one of my favorite Digital Images at The Little Paper Shop...which reminds me, you could WIN your choice of TWO FREE DIGITAL IMAGES by entering your card using today's sketch!

One random winner will be announced on Friday on the LPS blog so what are you waiting for? Get stampin'! Have a great Monday, everyone!
