Thursday

I finished the Soccer album tonight that we are giving our daughter Joy for Mothers Day. The album is 20 pages so I have really worked to get it finished. Of course, it helped that I adhered to the K.I.S.S. principle. Here's another picture from the album. Every team member received a trophy after the last game and this is a picture of Sarabeth with her trophy.




I also made a card for Joy. I used Chris' card sketch posted May 3rd on Page Plans for my inspiration for the card.

Aren't the dragonflies cute. I found them Saturday at Dollar General. I love the sentiment that I used on the card -- "Sing out loud in the car even, or especially, if it embarrasses your children." -- Marilyn Penland. Joy is a Mom/Step Mom to two teenage boys and one preteen boy in addition to four year old Sarabeth. Needless to say, she spends a lot of time in the car chauffering boys around.

Now I just have to get Robin's finished.

Luck, love and laughter,

Judy
