Nicole and Meighen's Birthday/Bloggerversary Bash!

Welcome to Nicole and Meighen's Birthday/ Bloggerversary Bash . Today you will be visiting some great blogs with some awesome inspiration on how to celebrate a holiday with a Birthday twist.
If you arrived here from Shannon blog you are on the right track. If you just happen to come here by chance you may wish to start at the beginning which is Meighen's blog.

For my Holiday project, I choice Mothers Day, my son Russell was born on Mothers Day 38 years ago. I still think of him as my sweet baby boy, but thank goodness he is old enough to understand that Mom and Dad just have to get away when we can. Once again last May, Alberta was hit with a major snow storm in May, we were so sick of winter that we decided to book a last minute trip to the Mayan Rivera for a week and once again it fell on my sons birthday. So hubby and I just laid back in the sun, drinking our Cerveza without a care in the world! And once again poor Russell was left to shovel the walks and babysit the dog!

I made a tropical themed Birthday Card for my son, just in case it happens again this year! and the layout is of the resort we stayed at in Mexico.

Cartridges used for the layout were
Life is a Beach
George and Basic Shape

Blog Candy anyone???? Today I have a Stamp Set called Under The Stars from Close to my Heart. Please leave a comment and make sure you are a follower..... if you would like a chance to win.

Your next stop along the way is Christine Blog.

I would just like to take a moment and wish both Nicole and Meighen a very Happy Birthday, may all their dreams come true! Thank you both for letting me be part of your celebration! I had a great time making this project for the hop
