Happy Birthday!

It's my mom's birthday! Mom is awesome. She is fun, frugal, well-read, smart, and pretty. A wonderful grandma, too. And she's probably on her way over here so I better get a move on!

Here's a picture of us 32ish years ago. Shockingly, we both have our eyes open! Not sure where my nose is, though. Yeah, I should probably scan more of my childhood pictures. Mom is beautiful here, though, and that's what matters today. I can look cute in old pictures on my birthday. *wink*

I used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch and I love how it turned out. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey 6x6 Life of the Party pad. L0ve them! So festive. :) Okay, I have a guest room to clean up. Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Stamps - Waltzingmouse Frame It
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Tangelo (sponged the orange layer a little for definition)

Paper - Basic Grey Life of the Party 6x6, SU Peach Parfait, PTI kraft, Rustic White
Other - PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate, Twinery bakers twine, Copics (R00, R20, G00, G02, Go5, YG06, E21, E23)
