MIM #65

Hope you all had a beautiful Mother's Day. I spent the day with a dear friend who is a Priest from Chicago vacationing here on Merritt Island.  We went to Mass this morning at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe in Orlando this morning. I had never been there before and Fr. has spoken of it so often, I just had to have the experience and what better day than today in honor our Mothers.  Wish my Mom could have been there with me today.

On another (crafty note)  I have another Make It Monday post ~ making backgrounds with patterned papers. I am just lovin using up some of the hundreds of scrap papers I have hanging around my desk (bet I'm not alone ;)
