Mom Layout

Our challenge at Frosted Designs is all about Mom!!  You can celebrate your mom, you being a mom, your Aunt (or any other mom) or even a person who is not a mom but has awesome mom qualities!!!

My mom died in 1989 when I was 20.  I am currently older than she got to be.  My plan was to have a big birthday party (my birthday is Monday) to celebrate that I "made it" past her oldest that my birthday is near, I am consumed with guilt.  This really surprised me as these powerful emotions have been absent for almost 20 years.  

I was avoiding this project and almost did a layout of my boys instead.  But I went looking in the old photo albums and only found a few photos of just me and my mom.  This photo is at my 6th birthday party.  My mom always made our cakes - this year she made me a heart cake!
I added some handwriting and details on my page.  I also used some buttons, lace and pearls.  I don't usually use pink in my layouts, but I just loved the floral print paper. 
I tucked these pretty flowers next to the photo.

I used the green paper to mat my photo - it was yellowing around the edges and white or cream washed out the photo.  
I inked the pink doilies on my background and added a small strip of pink cardstock at the top.  I used my Cameo to cut my title.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms, Grandmas, Step-Moms, and awesome mother figures!!!!!  Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Lori, I can so relate to your feelings! I lost my Mom at 26 and after I passed her age, I refused to celebrate my birthday for several years. Do whatever you feel comfortable with including scrappin' your memories of her. What a lovely layout. TFS

Beautiful layout and tribute, Lori. My mom passed away when I was 39, quite a few years ago. Months later I found myself pregnant and had a little girl after two boys and thinking I was done having children. I think God gave me a gift.
