Making Memories, Birthdays and More

Hi my scrappy friends!

Today, I'm playing catch up on projects and I wanted to post some pics of the past week, including this photo of my latest layout using The Scarlet Lime's March kit with Making Memories goodies. I love this entire collection! :-) I'm hoping to scrap some more pages today with the kit...

(Click on the photos below to view them larger.)

Last week, we celebrated my Mami's 82nd birthday!!! How exciting. We are so blesssed to have her here with us and she looked so pretty. Her wonderful nurse, Ednis, takes such good care of her... she bathed her, dressed her, fixed her hair, put on some make-up and jewelry, and voila!!! What an amazing day!!!

My DH must have had one wine glass too many because he cut people out of this photo! LOL!

And here's Mami making funny faces with my Stepdad... she also asked for some wine!

It was also my Godson, D'Angelo's, 9th birthday so here's a pic of us together. I love this awesome kid and I'm so lucky to be his Godmother. I'm so proud of him -- he will always be my "angel."

Easter Sunday was not what we expected. We didn't celebrate or do anything because my father-in-law was in the hospital with Bronchitis and other complications. Thankfully, he was sent home on Wednesday and he is now recovering. I love him very much and I'm so happy that he is getting better! While in the hospital, I snapped this photo of my MIL holding his hand and she was caressing him. After 40-something years of marriage, this is what life is all about. Family and love: Priceless.

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs to all and happy scrapping!
