Have your cake...

Hope everyone's having a wonderful Mother's Day!  I have some pictures to post for the things I made for my mom, but I'm not going to be able to give them to her until tomorrow.  Hi, Mom!   I had a surprise package from Amazon a couple of days ago.  I order books all the time, so I really didn't think it was a surprise.  When I opened the box however, there was a very pretty tin of English Breakfast Tea!  I immediately said to Dennis, " But, I didn't order any tea!"  Then, I looked at the little slip of paper which said Happy Mother's Day from Lauren and Paul.  How fun is that - I love surprises! 

Lauren loves old cookbooks and pamphlets.  I found a Bakers Chocolate pamphlet in great condition.  I scanned some of the pages to use on future projects.  I finally remembered that I had the scans. 
The challenge at Moving Along With the Times is CAKE!  So, I used a page from the pamphlet along with the picture of the great chocolate layer cake.  Here's the inside:  
 I also really like the blue discs that I picked up at Joann's sometime in the past.  They match this paper perfectly!  Have a great week!
