New by Ruby Lane at Funky Playground

With Mother's Day almost here, many of us take a moment to think about how special mothers are to us. They make sure we eat our vegetables and get our homework done; they sing us lullabyes, kiss the ouchies and embarrass us in front of our friends;  but most of all, they love us even when it isn't easy. So take a moment to see how you can honor your mother with Ruby Lane's newest beautiful kit at FP called:
"My Mother, My Friend".

And matching products to help your creativity blossom even more!

As always, be inspired by the projects created by the very talented CT ladies. Starting first with
