So... did you have a nice Mothersday?? I did have a lovely day. First the girls and Allan spoiled me with some school made pressies and some body shop products. After Breakfast Emma, Rhiannon and I took part in the Mothers day Classic, a walk to support research in breast cancer. It was extra special this year as my mum is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. She is doing great. She is tired but handeling it like a trooper, she is awesome!!

Here are Emma and me and a star wars person... (can you tell I never watch star wars etc? )

The rest of our mothersday was nicely relaxing.

The night before mothersday was our Chefs toolbox party which was a lot of fun!!The girls and I spent some time making cakes during the day. They love baking and helping to pre taste it ;) Our favourite cake at the moment is this Pineapple and coconut slice, far out, so delicious!!! I'll give you the recipe for it, you really have to try it, it tastes a lot better than it sounds. I didn't have a picture of the completed cake as it was gone before I remembered to take a picture... oops...

Remember I told you about the CC at scrapboutique?? I created 2 Lo's for it. The second one was for the speedscrap which was hosted by me and the first one was for Sharon, our guest stylist for April, her challenge. Loving these papers!!!!

Busy and fun times ahead as it's Ruby her birthday in 9 sleeps (as she told me today), Ruby her party in 2 1/2 weeks and then the retreat in 3 1/2 weeks. Fun though, lots of fun!!!

Here is our cake/ slice recipe, enjoy :)

Happy Scrapping :)
