I love Vibrant Beauty. But I really like them all. Your Mom is very talented.

I will have to wish your Mom Happy Birthday after work! For some reason xanga is firewalled and blogger is not. Weird.

Happy Friday!

I figured out how to post on Xanga but the name is not the same. I love all the photos. I think I would get the Atlanta one as a gift for my Mom as she lives in Atlanta.

I am torn between the 3 middle pictures! :/ I like all of them so it's hard to pick! She always takes such good photos, and I may have to get the Sunset in Georgia one blown up big to put in our loft! As soon as I get home, I'll hop over to mom's blog to when I get home! Thanks for doing the Give Aways! I want to make something new to give away, and I LOVE the favorite things swap! SO FUN!
