My First Mothers Day and the Craft Challenge Project

This has been a very interesting week....for some reason Matt and I have just been a little off (not with each other, just in general). I think the main reason is that Orson is teething, as in my gums are swollen and hurt and nothing and I mean nothing will make me happier while they feel like this. He has taken to making the highest pitch squeals he can, sobbing uncontrollably when those don't help and then trying to smile and play in between. Its all been a little wearing on the mommy nerves since nothing is worse then not being able to comfort your baby when he hurts.

Luckily I have some fond memories from Sunday to reflect on when all else fails! Matt and Orson did a wonderful job of making me feel special this Sunday, they made me pancakes for breakfast (fresh flowers on the table), took me "window" shopping at multiple garden centers, took me hiking, surprised me with dessert at the Dessert Diner in the middle of the day and then cuddled with me after mass in the evening. I felt like the most loved mom in the world. And as if all that wasn't enough, Matt got my wedding and engagement ring re sized and he added a sapphire and diamond to my wedding band for Orson (the other 4 diamonds and sapphires were put in over time by my Dad standing for each of the kids my mom had)!!! I'm so excited to be able to wear them again, as they haven't fit since around October of last year. To top the day off, Matt had read my previous post and just before I feel asleep he combed his fingers through my hair and held me....the day was priceless.

So I decided that I really wanted to make something to help me always remember how special the day was and luckily, my sister bought me a subscription to Christie's Craft Challenge for my birthday. I had been toying with multiple ideas ever since I received the packet and last night I decided to take everything that Christie sent and multiple memories from Sunday and combine them together. See if you can figure out what I'm going to make:
