OUAS CHALLENGE FOR MAY is all about Mother .
here is my take .. "ME AND YOU"

Theme: Mum
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Mum" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch.

Ideas for journalling: you as a mother, your role as a working/stay-at-home mum, sacrifices/benefits of being a mum, one day in your life as a mum, how your life has changed since being a mum, a tribute to your own mum, grandmother, guardian or someone you consider as close as your mum, your relationship with your mum or your daughter, one trait you have take from your mum, your desire to be a mum, your feelings on motherhood, what does it mean to be a mum?, what kind of mum do you want to be? , Mother's Day celebrations/traditions, your favourite Mother's Day gift given/receive etc..

I created this fabric flower from calico and fabric scraps.
 chipboard title is from IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS 

over at SCRAP FOR HELP this month 
the challenge is to create a project or LO using a recycled envelope 
my take 
this pic was taken a few years ago on Dakota's 8th birthday .. 2005

 I used an old envelope and lined it with Prima paper..and added hidden journaling inside .
the chipboard title and tag are from IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS.

the beautiful metal clocks are available from MY2ANGELS online store 
 to see all of Tracy's delish items in her store 

for details
you wont be sorry 
Nadia is so organised and the team are like one big family 

I am recovering from an abscess on one of my back molars 
soooooooooooo painful.
so pleased I had all my DT designs done ahead of time 
I am feeling a little better as each day passes .
thanks so much everyone for your get well wishes .. mwah xoxo

thanks for dropping by 
hugz to everyone
