Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Mother's day Scrapbook Pages

Recently, I was asked to help the Activity Day girls in our ward to create a scrapbook page for their Mom's for Mother's Day. I created this example titled "For My Mother."

My daughter, Nessa, was there and here's her page that she created for me!

One thing I learned is that I need to be taking more photo's of me and my mom as well as more of me with Nessa! I had a hard time finding any at all. Why hadn't I ever realized this before? I hope I will remember this now and take those pictures! I'd love to have a new tradition of creating a page for Mother's Day. I really enjoyed it. I've heard that the Activity Day girls fun creating their pages and I think they turned out nice!

Supplies we used include: American Crafts medium purple cardstock(12x12), patterned paper and stickers by The Paper Studio, silver ink by Stampabilties, white craft ink by Stampin' Up, Making Memories bright colored flower brads, Flower stamps by Stampabilities. All items were purchased from Hobby Lobby.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
