Lessons on Motherhood from my Mom

I read a bazillion scrapbook / artsy type blogs. And several weeks ago, I got this idea for a mother's day album and fell in love with it. I wish I could remember what blog I saw it on so that I could give props to the idea originator, but, like I said, I read a bazillion blogs and tried to re-find it, but gave up after ten minutes.

Anyhow, the idea was to show two pictures, on of your mom and you as a child, and the other picture of you and your child - doing a similar activity or at a similar event.

I was able to put together this album using 2 sheets of 12x12 cardstock, 2 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, scraps from Owen's 5th Birthday layout, a couple of rings, and some lengths of different ribbon. Easy Peasy.

I love love love the way this album turned out.

Looking back on these photos, I realized a couple of things.
  • My mom was a very pretty young mother.
  • Owen looks SO much like me.
  • I look SO much like my mom.

Happy Mother's Day!
