Happy Mother's Day

Just wanted to wish all of you moms out there a Happy Mother's Day ... including my own mom who is traveling right now in France.  I miss you mom!!! Hope you're enjoying your trip!

I made this layout for The Inspired Scrapbooker.  My challenge was to create a layout with the theme of Mother's Day - could be anything.  About my mom. About me being a mom.  A tribute to someone who was a mother-like figure, etc.
So, I decided to make a layout about me being a mom. I did a lot of embossing on the Core'dinations cardstock, scored it (those lines on the lighter blue cardstock) and sanded the embossed images as well.  I also used my Cuttlebug to cut out the hearts and the title letters.

Supplies used: October Afternoon patterned paper, Core'dinations cardstock, Fiskars border punch, American Crafts brads, EK Success corner rounded punch

It looks like it's going to be a beautiful sunny day today and that makes me happy.  I'm looking forward to taking my youngest to his T-ball lessons. He's just learning and he's so cute to watch.  I'm sure that I have a smile on my face the entire 45 minutes!!
Ok, I need to go and get some breakfast ... and another cup of coffee!

Have a great weekend!
