Thank you all for leaving me a comment....
I don't think I have shared with you what the Beautiful Mummy & Mummy to be again Alyssa sent me for my Mother's Day present swap over at Scrap Chat!
Thank you so very much Lys....I love everything you sent me especially the chocolate!!! Pretty bad pics of me, but it was early in the morning and I look like something the cat had dragged in when the present arrived so I raced to the bathroom wet my hair and quickly ran my fingers through my hair to make it look a lil better. But ahhhhh I forgot to look in the mirror at what I looked like and yeh well next time I will do the hair and makeup before Baz takes any photos of me again!
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me your heartfelt comments. They put a smile on my face and lift my spirits. I really appreciate them, Luv Shaz xoxo
