A Layout from Mom



A detail image from layout...

As moms and scrappers, we have pride in our children and lots of wisdom to share with them. As my girls grow older and college years are not that far off, I feel the sands in the hour glass moving at warp speed, yet I have so much that I want to share and teach them. This layout is one of many that will be an ongoing scrap theme for me as I watch my teenage girls grow up so quickly. I took this photo of Ashley shortly after she turned 15. She had such a sweet and innocent look and I wanted to hang onto that memory for a while. I encourage you, whatever the age of your kids, to create “notes from Mom” layouts. There are so many cool quotes and embellishments that you can incorporate into your page that can help you share some of those words of wisdom and inspiration with your children.

The background CS and many of the fun embellishments used are from Around the Block; stamps are Inque Boutique/Darice and chipboard is Chippies from Zsiage. And all the adhesives were Glue Arts!!!
