DT post for Creative Inspirations: Mother's Day

Good morning lovelies - I hope you are well. Did you make the most of that wonderful weather we had over the past few days? I managed to run 10km in it yesterday - which was an absolute joy - the first one this year and it felt fine. Wish I could say the same about the aerobics class I did in the evening! My own fault though - I'm off out to Preston today and so I had to get my exercise in yesterday!!!! I'm taking my mum to Inspirations where they're having a week long extravaganza - and I'm uber excited to be seeing Hels Sheridan, Ali Reeve and Melanie Heaton demonstrating in store today!!! I'll let you know about it tomorrow.

Okay dokelies - so Over at Creative Inspirations this week's challenge is Happy Mothers Day!
