Mothers Day Musing

Aah, just excuse me a moment while I move my tray and grab my laptop. Breakfast in bed? It must be Mothers Day! I can't stay for long, though, because I'm due at a special party. We're combining Mothers Day with a First Birthday celebration for our small blonde scamp of a cousin, Little E. Is it really a year?

She had a few false starts (I don't think she'll mind me saying), but there was much happiness in our house some years ago when my sister found her man: the excellent Kenny-who-cooks. And further celebration from The Small One when she discovered he came with two ready made cousins. What could be better? Well, the arrival of a brand new baby cousin of course. And what a year of fun he has brought us all. I've written before here about one of his visits and I've finally got round to scrapbooking it:


My sister and I are often told how much alike we look and I think that's why I love this photo so much. Two cousins. Our boys. One so tall and dark. One so little, still, and fair. Happy Birthday Little E! Happy Mothers Day sis! Lets have a good one.

And that's what I wish for you all today too. Have a nice day.

Love the colours and composition of your layout. It's so simple, but really stunning.

And, isn't it great when you finally get those memories scrapped? x

Happy Mother's Day, Sian! It sounds like you have a lovely day planned. I love the strips of patterned paper under the photo in this layout. I'm quite sure you'll see this show up on one of my layouts soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

Happy Mother's Day to you both! I had no idea that Mother's Day was on a different day in the UK from the US. I hope you've had a wonderful day.
