Happy Mother's Day

It's after 2:00 a.m. so it's officially Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers I know out there. I'm posting really late or really early (depending on how look at it) because I was trying to get some pictures up on the store blog and I'm tech challenged as always.

I'm finally committed to teaching a class at the store. It will be a Vintage Pages class featuring two 12x12 layouts. They are very, very, very...simple and easy. No challenging techniques, no knock-em dead design innovation. Just two single photo layouts to hopefully inspire you to start on those vintage pictures you keep putting off scrapbooking.

I think I enjoyed these layouts more than the ones I've been doing lately of current times, events and people because they each contain favorite photos of my parents. One is of my mother taken for her high school graduation and the second is my favorite photo of my dad when he was an extra on a movie being filmed in Wilmington about 10-15 years ago. Just looking at both of these photos really made me smile and remember how special both my parents were. A good thing to do on Mother's Day.

Dear Donna,

Mother's Day was bittersweet, as I'm sure you understand. Difficult as we rememeber our own moms we no longer have with us, but sweet as we enjoy our own kids.

I'm excited you're doing a class at your shop! You have such a great artistic talent for this. I'm so glad you get to share it in this fashion.
