A Mother's Love!

Good Morning fellow scrappers!  I hope this day finds you full of creativity!

Today I would like to share a layout that I made for the May challenge at More than Words:


Word Inspiration - MOTHER
Creative Challenge - FLOWERS

This challenge asks you to incorporate both the word inspiration (Mother) 
and the creative challenge (Flowers) in your pages.

I have been inspired by my mother my whole life, and as a mother, I hope to inspire my daughters as well.  I found a wonderful photo of my mother, my sister, and me from 1958. I was almost 2 at the time and my sister was 8.  This picture is one of my favorites of all time!  I love the way my mother is looking at me and holding my hand.  And I love how Cathy is looking on at us. The interesting part is that this photo was taken at the Rose Garden . . . it couldn't be more perfect for this "mother-flower" challenge!!

Here is my completed layout
:
With a close-up of  my hand written journaling:


And a different view:


I really enjoyed making this layout and am so happy for the inspiration from More than Words.
Thank you!

And thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  Have a great one!
Happy Scrapping!!
