I wanted to share this Mother's Day layout today that I created about a year and a half ago. I had submitted the layout to Scrapbook Trends and it appeared in the May 2011 issue, so I haven't shared it here before. The call was for Mother's Day layouts and at first I thought - I haven't spent a Mother's Day with my mom in the past twenty years or so, I don't have anything for this call. That made me think that maybe I should create a Mother's Day layout about just that - that just because I'm not with my mom on Mother's Day, that doesn't mean that I'm not thinking about her and that I still love her very much.
The photo of my mom is probably from about 1968, so before I was even born. I love the photo because it reminds me how much I look like her!
I used mostly Crate Paper's Restoration line on this layout (my favorite line, EVER!) I made hand-rolled flowers that were perfect for this page. I created a hidden journaling tag, as I wanted the note to be more private.
I'm having the layout framed for her for Mother's Day. I hope she loves it!
Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
