Mother's Day Blog Hop

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Welcome to your last stop along the Mother's Day Blog Hop.  If you did not get here from Ashley's Blog, please go back to the beginning, Amanda's Blog and start from there.

Now that the business is taken care of, I'm glad you are here.  This Blog Hop is about Mother's Day.  I really struggled coming up with a project!  I have some pages of family generations.  Both boys' baby albums are finished.  Mini albums are not really my thing.  What to do?  I grabbed a box of baby photos,  which got me thinking and reflecting about how I felt when my older son was born.  I seem to do that a lot about this time every year.  Well, fancy that.  His birthday is tomorrow!

I'm also doing LOAD again this month. Oddly enough, the very first prompt was a self portrait.  Blah!  I just finished a whole class about me.  But some of the ideas were a favorite body part, a cartoon, or an avatar.  I decided to go with the body part.  Fair warning to you...swallow whatever you are drinking!




The colors in the photo are awful to work with, so I pretty much ignored them. I never do that! I thought the Simple Stories Life Documented Collection had some fun colors.  Somehow, they seemed to complement the photo, with out overpowering it. The calendar I cut out from a Sassafrass PP. I used black Stickles to circle the 5.  I outlined the 5 at the bottom of the LO with black pen.

I have some goodies to give away!  Please leave a comment.  I love new followers.  So if you aren't already a follower, please follow me and let me know that you are!  Thanks for stopping by and following along the Mother's Day Blog Hop.     Happy Mother's Day!

One last thing....Here's my baby and I, 12 years ago!
