Mother's Day Blog Hop Post #1

If you just stopped by my blog to visit, Thank You.  If you are here for the hop, you should be coming from Martha's Blog.  If so, you are on the right track.  If not, why don't you go start from the beginning at Jen's Blog.  

Happy Mother's Day!  I am so happy to be a mom and to be able to celebrate with my mom.  For my first post, I chose to make an 8 x 8 layout of my mom and my brother.  I never get a decent picture of these two for one reason or another.  It is a long time joke, that my mom always says "My Son" in a sweet innocent voice.  Suppose to make me jealous, Not!  lol  This picture was taken Christmas this past year. 
Supplies:  DCWV 8x8, Bazzil Cardstock, Buttons, MM Letters and my new Sew Easy. 


I am reposting a layout I made of my mom a few months ago.  My mom was diagnosed with dementia about 1 1/2 years ago and has had many ups and downs since then.  Mom has always been the strong-supportive person in our lives.  My mom is my everything, including being my best friend! 
Supplies: SEI Moonrise paper and tag, Cricut title, MS Punch, Prima Flowers


Surprise Flowers from My husband and daughter, Victoria this morning!  Yellow Roses are my favorite!


I hope you like my layouts and all the projects you have seen so far.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  If you like my blog, please become a follower.  If you are a follower already, thanks ;).  Leave me a comment to be eligible for my giveaway.  I would love to hear what you think of my work.  Also leave me a way to contact you in case you are the lucky winner.  Stop back tomorrow to see post #2 for the Mother's Day Hop.

Your next stop is Carlene.   The complete lineup is located below in case you missed anyone.

Really beautiful layout of your mom and brother. My heart breaks for you, as we went through the same thing with my mother-in-law. Dementia is such an up and down battle. But I think scrapbooking and journaling about it makes us stronger! Thanks for sharing your talent.
