A few scrappy layouts

OKay.... so I have gotten back from my weekend of scrappiness at The Red Rooster, which is an incredible place and I really need to devote an entire post to them-LOL... but twice a year my scrappy friend Sandy hosts a retreat here and it is AWESOME, 3 1/2 days of nothing by scrap time, good food and great fun!!   Now I didn't get near the pages done I should have with 3 1/2 days of scrap time, but in the end did do 15 pages, which is 15 more than I had so it is a win!!

Here are a few of my layouts, I still have journaling to add to the others :)
                                   a couple of Christmas layouts
                          my niece Paige (in the green) and her cousin Mylie

                  this is a layout I did for The Scrapbook Princess April Layout challenge
               done with KI Paisley Parade Papers, Pink Paislee chipboard and a little slice action

So David has a new BFF....  

This is Thomas, our cousin and he latched onto David the morning of the party like they had know each other forever, which is funny because it has been such a long time since we have been around them.

Apparently Thomas didn't forget him either because he stuck to him like glue at the party, it was quite funny knowing my husband.

      how sweet is this??

 and was it ever a surprise!!!  
We decided to throw my mom a {surprise} party for her 65th birthday and we were so worried she would find out but we pulled it off with great success, except she didn't listen when I told her to wear something nicer than "mom" jeans (LOL) so for her birthday we went shopping and then headed over to my aunt's to see Shannon, Greg and the babies that were in town, so she didn't suspect anything was up thanks to them being here. 
Here are a few pics from the afternoon...

             we were able to get some good family shots and all of the people in her office came too

PK took care of all the food and cake.... Gumbo bar and strawberry cake-YUMMY!!!
