Mom at 13

I was super excited when I remembered that I had an old album of my mother's. And even more excited when I discovered that the photos were starting to come off the adhesive holding them in. After a little research, I found that dental floss would help to convince the photos to come the rest of the way out safely.

At the scrapbooking group Scrappin-n-Chattin, one of the challenges this month is to include the word Mom, Mother, etc. in the title of a page. A few of us have been struggling with working with older photos of our moms, doing them justice. When I started to think about my project for this week for Lasting Memories, I thought a photo of my mother would be perfect. The challenge is to use flowers on your layout. I also used this month's sketch at SnC for this layout. I think it was perfect for this photo.
And here is my layout...


I have a bunch more photos to take out of the album and then get them all scanned so I can share them with my sister. She will be very excited to have them.

Go check out the fabulous, flowery layouts created by the LM design team. I hope you will play along this week.

Gorgeous is all I can say. I love the vintage look and those flowers are a perfect match. I wish I had some photos of my mom when she was young...so sad, but I am glad you have them and can do such beautiful layouts with them
