“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to wish mothers of all types out there a Happy Mother's Day!  I myself get to partake in this holiday this year as well as does my sister-in-law and the new grandmom!  These are the cards that I made for the "moms" in my life.  Enjoy and have a wonderful day!  Also, these cards fit the challenge for the week over at the Heart 2 Heart challenges blog and it has been a while since I participated so I will link to that as well.

Just some crafty info for you:  The first and last cards were made with the Dotty for You paper pack promotion for this month.  Don't forget that if you place a $35 order you can add Dotty for You to your order for just $5!  The other cards use Roxy and Stella.
