#359 For the Moms

Hey everyone!

This week's challenge is celebrating Moms - your mom, your grandma, aunt, cousin, sister, step mom, so many different kinds of moms that we have!

Show us how you celebrate that special mom in your life!

The DT has some great projects to get you started!

I did a simple Mother's Day card for my mom using up some old 6x6 papers and a 
couple of stamps - the flower one was recently gifted to me from my aunt. 




I used the  Echo Park "I am Mom" collection to scrapbook these pics of me and my 3 kiddos from 2015...





I was inspired to scrap these "Us-ies" (Us + Selfies) of my children and me from Mother's Day 2017. I turned my photos into black & white because the bad
lighting made the colors in the photos look awful.
I used the Mama Llama collection from Simple Stories because I love llamas and I chose to use the brown PP from the collection because brown is my favorite color! Everything else is from Elle's Studio.

I have created a layout of my daughter and granddaughter on Mother's Day of this year.



Here's a fun fold card I made for my sweet Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day.



Here's the Mother's Day card I made for my mom.  
Note: the word "Mother's" was added after I took this photo.

Challenge #358: Weather

Hi, this week at Use Your Stuff, show us all kinds of weather!  There are all kinds of crazy things going on around the globe these days to feature, commiserate or what have you.
What does weather mean to you?  Show us in the linky below.

Meanwhile here are some DT ideas:

Karrie
Imho (and I'm probably not alone here) sunshine is the best type of weather,  
and my hubby has a lovely hobby of shooting sunrises and sunsets...


My daughter's soccer season has been plagued with rain.  So I decided to feature a picture of her toting her soccer gear to the field in her new "soccer backpack" (AKA the garbage bag).

I don't have many weather related photos to scrap but I did take this photo of a "Fall" leaf that fell onto the snow on our deck.  It was a early season snowfall so I thought it was interesting that the leaves were still falling from our trees.

Highlights: Flora & Fauna

Thank you again to everyone who participated in our "Flora and Fauna" challenge at Use Your Stuff.  I think this was the first time I've ever had to scroll through multiple pages to admire all the entries.  With so many gorgeous projects to choose from, this was not an easy decision.  I went back several times enjoying all the projects, but these three kept bringing a smile to my face.

 This box is simply adorable!  Can you imagine the joy someone is going to have opening up this box and finding a cute little blue bird with loads of colorful flowers?  Absolutely gorgeous!

 This sweet little chick sitting atop a branch with brightly colored berries caught my eye instantly. Such a great use of inks and die cuts.  

I just had a conversation with my husband about dandelions.  Why are they considered weeds?  They are beautiful flowers in all their forms.  And this little badger hanging out in the dandelion patch is the perfect touch for this project.

Once again, thanks to all of you who took part in our Flora and Fauna challenge.  Please continue to play along with us at Use Your Stuff!
