Happy Birthday Mama

I want to wish my Mama a Happy Birthday!
Today is her 51st birthday. It is bitter sweet, cause this is the 1st time I am not able to see her on her birthday since I was born. She is gone one her 1st vacation in 12 years. She went with a group of friends she works with. I am so glad she was finally able to go on a vacation, she deserves it. She works 2 jobs and hardly ever gets a day off. So I hope she is having a blast down in Panama City.
Happy Birthday, I love you!!!

I also did some challenge layouts for Club Dude today
1st 2 are from Kim Smith's new kit Summer Life

Mother-Best Friend




The next 2 come from Dude's new kit
Simply, Star-Spangled

Sunshine Studios. (image linked)
It is a whimsical. fun kit for all those boy photos you have laying around.
