Happy Birthday, Mom!

My dear mom is celebrating her 65th birthday today. We already had a birthday party last Saturday. We went out for dinner with family and my parents' best friends and had a wonderful evening. On my way home from work this afternoon I stopped by my parents to hand my mom her birthday card and a gift card holder. I used Crate Paper's Portrait collection, one of the add-on products offered along with the March kit from My Scrapbook Nook.

Happy Birthday, mom! I love you...
