There's a First Time for Everything....

Just a quick little post to share this 
bright and cheerful card with you.

Over at the CARDS blog, Paige is calling
for cards using flower paper, so I thought
I would share this over there as well.

You may notice I have been breaking out my
Cosmo Cricket paper lately.

It's from the 'Material Girl' collection.
This card is all paper-layering with a few
little pearl rhinestone embellishments.
I used my Martha loop punch for the center border.

Before I go, I just HAD to share these two
photos with you.  Last week, I mentioned that
my daughter and grandson would be in a wedding
together, she a bridesmaid for the first time
and he was the ring bearer.
There were MANY firsts that day.

I have to tell you that when I took this photo,
they had just seen each other for the first time before
the wedding.  My daughter had to fight back the
tears as she was SO proud!

It was such a great day!
At the reception, he finally gave in and
danced with his mom, which was 
another first for both of them.
Then....he got his 'mema' out on the dance floor.
That was a first for dance with my grandson.
He could have danced the night away with me.
I think it was approximately 10:30pm
when he came to me and said ''Mema, I'm 
ready to go to your house to sleep over" and
believe me, it wasn't long before he was out
like a light, sandwiched between
Paul and I.

Speaking of Papa Paul....

These two just make me smile.....
