Happy Mother's Day!!

Good morning and Happy Mother's Day. I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend. The weather has been pretty good here so far this weekend.

I enjoyed learning a little more about a lot of you last week with your awesome layouts. Way to go scrapping about you. This week at Lasting Memories we have a Mother's Day photo inspiration photo to follow.Beautiful colors, right? I did my page for my garden album for this challenge. For some reason, the flowering trees we have in our yard don't flower much in the spring. It's probably due to the very tall pine trees along the property line in the neighbor's yard. We seem to get a lot of sun, but maybe not quite enough. Our Bradford Pear did flower on the lower half of the tree, so of course I had to take some pictures. I followed this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays.


I thought these photos would work well with the sketch. The top photo is the picture of the whole tree, with the flowers on the bottom half. It's kind of hard to see the flowers in that photo.


Be sure to check out the rest of the wonderful inspiration at Lasting Memories. I hope to see your pages based on the color inspiration. Have a wonderful week.

Beautiful lo Sue! I love those pear trees. My mom has two and they are so pretty when they flower and I love the shape of them too. It's funny how yours only flower on part of it. The picture of the flowers is so pretty. I like the sketch a lot too and your flowers in place of some of the circles. Great lo!
