Life Is A Beautiful Ride

Believe it or not I actually got a layout done!!  My life is still hectic as ever, but I told myself there needed to be a little "ME" time!  
I had a wonderful Mothers Day and hope that all of you did also!  I had my family over for a cookout.  The weather was gorgeous and it was nice for all of us to be together!  My kids gave me some flowers for Mothers Day and I actually spent some time outside planting them.  
I'm still job hunting and have a possible interview in the works and am excited about that.  My sister and I have been taking my mom into see various specialists and so far nothing wrong has been found with her.  The next big visit is with a neurologist.  
Now on to my layout.  I used the May kit from Artful Delight which is packed with Echo Parks Summer Days collection.
Leeanne is having 14 days of sketches over at Artful Delight and I based my layout on her sketch #6:
Here are a few closeups:

Well, I've got a lot of catching up to do!  
Thanks for stopping by!
