Mother's Day Blog hop 4/30

Welcome to Nicolette's Mother's Day Blog Hop!  If you came here by way of Jessica's blog you are headed in the right direction. If you just happened upon my blog and want to see all the fantastic projects by these very creative ladies then start here:  Nicolette

My project is for, of course, my wonderful mother. She lives in Arizona now so I only get to see her once a year for the summer. I wanted to make her something to remember all of us kids by!  I made a word book of MOTHER.  I dug through an old trunk I've been storing for her and couldn't believe the memorabilia I found. Old pictures of my sisters and brother, old report cards and school papers.  I scanned everything and put it in the book for her! 

Everything is cut from the Storybook cartridge.   

I think this is the first time I've coordinated all my paper LOL.

I found these mother related poems online and printed them out




Thank you for stopping by.  Hope you enojyed my Mother's Day  Wordbook!  Now on to the rest of this beautiful hop next stop -->  Jalisa


Did I forget to tell you about my BLOG CANDY??!!??  How could I do that!!   Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Monday 5/2/11.  No need to be a follower unless you want like what you see and want to come back!!

A pick-me-up tool.  This little tool is great for picking up small embellisments.  It has a sticky end and a pointy end!

  Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!
