Happy Birthday Mom!

This weekend we celebrated my Mom's 65th birthday! She might kill me for sharing that, but I am still having a hard time realizing that she is 65. She doesn't look anywhere near that age to me! I just hope I look that good when I turn 65! We had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday and of course my niece was right in the middle of it all!
I created my version of a flower pot angel as a gift for her, after being inspired to create one by Patti Milazzo. You can see her flower pot angel on the Bo Bunny Blog. When I first saw that angel I knew I wanted to make one for my mom for her birthday! Well she loved it and I love how it turned out! I will try to get some photos soon and post them here to share with you.
Today, Bo Bunny is featuring Love Bandit on their blog! This has to be on of my favorite Valentine themed lines ever! It is just too adorable with all the cute little critters! I created a layout about my niece and her "Punkin"! My mom made it for her to use as a pillow at daycare, but it has never been used for that! To her it was "Punkin" and meant to be hugged and loved, not used as a pillow! I'm telling you, this little girl is something else!!!
(Supplies:Love Bandit Flower Die Cut, Love Bandit, Love Bandit Bee Mine, Love Bandit Whoo Loves You, Love Bandit Tweetheart, Love Bandit Nuts 4 U, Love Bandit Cut Outs, Chunky Chips Alpha Chiffon (covered with patterned paper), Double Dot Cardstock Strawberry and TuTu)
The fun border piece I created from the Love Bandit die cut paper and punched border strip was inspired by a very talented friend of mine....Cindy! When I saw this LO of hers I knew I had to give that border idea a try! Thanks Cindy for the inspiration!!!

Make sure you stop by the Bo Bunny blog for more inspiration using Love Bandit from the rest of the DT!

Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!
