Afternoon tea, a layout and an anniversary card...

Hi everyone!

Today I had the most wonderful the Prep Mother's Day Afternoon Tea with Riley.

When I arrived Riley led me into his classroom, sat me down and asked me how I'd like my cup of tea...which he then went and made for me (with a little help from one of his teachers) and presented me with a yummy choc chip cookie they'd made in class earlier. Then we drew a picture together, read a book did some puzzles, he showed me a lovely picture of me that he'd drawn...and then the best thing of all was watching Riley sing "My Girl" with his class.

Now I know watching your child sing a song with the class would be a lot of fun for any Mum...but you see, Riley has NEVER joined in to sing a song (let alone do the actions)with his class...It was a constant issue right through Kindy (he was the only one who sat out of his Kindy Christmas concert) and even this year it's been a struggle but his confidence has been gradually improving...and today I can't tell you how proud I was to see him standing up there with the biggest grin on his face while he sang and did every action...and loved every minute of it! My cheeks hurt from smiling and yep...I got the teary eyes too. Seriously it was the best Mother's Day present I could've asked for!!! :)

Now for a little scrapping... This layout is my sample page for the "Scrap It Blind" challenge that's been running for the past week over at Scrapz.Biz. It's been so fun to see everyone's pages popping in the gallery!

This week's challenges are now going up and it was my turn to set the Noteworthy Challenge. (Details of the challenge and how to enter can be found HERE.) I created this for my Mum & Dad who are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary this month! I wanted to create a special keepsake to mark the occasion and came up with this photo card.

Inside I've included one of their wedding photos along with a photo of them now.

I'll write a little message to them on the back. Isn't 40 years an amazing achievement!? I love these photos...

(Love you Mum & Dad!!! Happy Anniversary!!! xxxxxx)

I think that's about it for now.... I've probably forgotten something though... LOL I hope you're enjoying your week...and have a wonderful Mother's Day on Sunday! Hope a little spoiling comes your way. :) Thanks for dropping by!
