Riley's Award, a Layout and a Mother's Day Card

So did you have a lovely Mother's Day? I sure did. I felt very spoiled by Paul and the kids! Paul did have to work all day but I still got pancakes for brekkie, lots of gorgeous prezzies, Mum & Dad came for lunch, then we had Thai for dinner. It was great! I hope you had a wonderful day too whatever you got up to. :)

Before I share some scrapping I just had to tell you about Riley's very first assembly award! After his awesome effort at the Mother's Day Afternoon Tea last week, his teacher decided to give him an award. He had no idea he was getting it, but thankfully Mrs Michaels let us know so we could be there to see it. Just look at his face when his name was read out!
And here he is standing up the front of assembly very proudly showing off his certificate! (He's looking at me in these pics...Paul took the photos from a different angle.)

We're so proud of you Riley! xxx :) for some scrapping. I've set the What's Cooking challenge for this week over at Scrapz.Biz. (Details of the challenge can be found HERE.) Here's my sample...

I've used Crate Paper Brook papers for this one. I love this photo of Ayden taken on his 6th birthday (I'm a little behind on scrapping birthday pics! LOL) Inside the Maya Road envelope are more photos taken on the day. Here's a couple of closeups...

I also thought I'd share the Mother's Day card I made for my Mum this year. She loved it! :)

I used tissue paper for the flower centres and stuck them to punched scalloped circles. Too easy!

Well...I'm off to watch some tv and laze on the couch for the rest of the night. Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
