I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. It's a bittersweet day for me but I have a lot of memories of my mom that I want to share with my daughter. Since my mother passed before she was born documenting the memories I have of her is a great way for my daughter to know her too.
Sadly I don't have many photos of my mom so I really cherish the ones I do have. I used a couple of photos of my mom and a couple with me and my daughter when she was a little girl. The patterned paper is Authentique (Grace Collection), the embellishments are all odds and ends from my stash. I also used some molding paste, templates and distress ink in a couple of the tray squares. I really love the B&W photos with the papers and colors.

And in keeping with my pledge to use more of the scrap supplies I already have, this was a great project to do. So don't hoard those long un-used items...get busy and create!
