Mother....you're the most beautiful

Can you believe we are in April, and that Mother's Day is just around the corner? How do you celebrate your mom? I know everyone has such unique and special traditions...each tradition being enriching and dynamic for all of our families.  I always struggle to make the most perfect Mother's Day card for my mom each year.  But I still have a little time....in the meanwhile, I did make a layout of my adorable mom:

Mother...you're the most beautiful flower in the garden of life

Hmmm, wondering where I get my love for flowers? ;) My mom is a classy lady, she is old fashioned in some ways, but is exquisitely modern in her thinking, wisdom, and expression of humor.  She has guided me through some of my worst moments in life, and she has also rejoiced with me during my best moments.  I could go on forever about her....but truly...what an amazing woman.....

For the layout, I meshed together papers and embellishments from Simple Stories, Chickaniddy Crafts, and Bo Bunny.

I used almost an entire set of sentiment stamps from a Mama Elephant set to create my own little journaling bit at the top.  The leaf stems are from a die that I just love!
