Remember This

Happy Memorial Day!

At Fantabulous Cricut this week, the challenge was to "Remember This" (Create a project to remember a special person, time or anniversary). I decided to remember my Mother in a layout.

Finished layout: 12" x 12"

Cardstock: Dark Brown, Medium Tan, Light Tan, Cream, and Patterned Paper.
Cricut Cartridge Paper Lace I Love You, page 60 (Lace 1 Base and Lace 1 Shadow Base)
Cricut Cartridge Lyrical Letters "M", "e", "and", "o", "m", Various pages
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Stylized Flowers
Copy of Photograph
Two Small Gold Brads 
One Large Brad
Mounting Tape

This was taken oh, so may years ago...I think I was about 10 or 12 years old. As I have said before in an earlier post, I lost my mother about 20 years ago.  My mom always loved this picture. I think she would like this layout. 

Take the time to remember something or someone special. I know it brought me a smile (and a tear).

Don't forget also, this is Day 3 of the BugBites Bug Hop. If you want to win some blog candy, leave a comment on Saturday's post (click here). To start from the beginning of the hop click could win some blog candy at all the trail stops along the way.  

Have a great Memorial Day!
