With Love, Mom

I truly love being a mom. I'm not saying it's easy by any means! That's for sure. But there is just something so special and rewarding about having children and seeing them blossom and learn and grow into the people they are to become. It's fascinating!

For the Dream Street blog this month, I was to create an altered project about a mom or grandmother. I looked around and I don't have a lot of photos of my mom. We don't get to see them that often and she doesn't like her picture taken. I don't know why because she is beautiful!! You can bet I will try to get more pics next time I see her! Anway, I digress...

So, what I came up with is a little mini album from me to my girls about what I love about being their mother. I used Dream Street's Forever Family line of papers and rub ons. Looove the colored rub ons so much! OK here it is....
(click on photos to see them larger)










Supplies:
Papers and colored rub ons: Forever Family by Dream Street
Mini album and leaf pin: Maya Road
Black saying rub ons and some of the pearls: Melissa Frances
String pearls: Prima
Swirl chipboard: Bo Bunny
Brad: K&Co.
Other: creme colored paint, maching stitching, twine.


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a terrific day!

I bet your mother cried. My eyes welled up with tears looking at this. It is just so beautiful! I wanted to know how you stitched on chipboard? It looks like machine stitching, but could a sewing machine handle it? Thanks!
