Thank You Mini Scrapbook

I wanted to thank Hannahlily for making Mother's Day so special for me so I created this mini scrapbook. I used a Stampin Up scrapbook kit and Accucut dies. These are some of the pages in the scrapbook. I put a copy of the hand drawn card she made for me on the cover

We love reading about Tasha Tudor's simple life. She gave me some of her books and a DVD with Tasha Tudor showing her garden & Corgi Cottage.

Breakfast was a pot of tea, Mango Lassi, and Quinoa Hazelnut Scones. Mango Lassi had fresh mangos.

Quinoa Scones had fresh ground quinoa flour.

Brunch was Asparagus Whole Wheat Bread Pudding.

The recipes were copied and attached to tags that went in pockets behind the pictures. I wrote on the back of the tags thank you notes. I used my own handwriting. I have awful handwriting but I kept in mind how I treasure anything that was written to me in my parents own handwriting.

Later that day we had a campfire in the back yard. She made chili with soy dogs on whole wheat bread, foil packets of zuccini & squash, and foil packets of potatoes & carrots.

Banana boats with chocolate chips and homemade coconut marshmallows were wrapped in foil and heated.

Of course I had to include Henry.

This is absolutely lovely! I am touched by how much you two treasure each other -- how blessed you both are to have the other as mother & daughter!
