Blog Every Day In May - Happy Mother's Day

As we celebrate Mother's Day today, I am so grateful for the FUN Mama and I have when we get together to scrapbook. Most months she comes out and visits for a couple of days, and we scrap and visit and play games. Mama spends a good bit of time putting together photos and page kits before she arrives, so she always has a pile of completed pages when she heads home. Most of her layouts are Connections Layouts, combining photos over time - like this one showcasing photos of each of her pregnancies.


And like the rest of us collectors scrapbookers, she's always up for a trip to Hobby Lobby and/or Michael's. She even puts up with me snapping photos all the time!


But best of all, she takes time to look through my scrapbooks and check out the latest pages I've completed.


I know that often Mama would prefer to be sewing or quilting, but those pursuits have become more difficult in recent years. I love the fact that she's found another hobby that she can enjoy, and especially one that we can enjoy together.

Happy Mother's Day Mama! I love you!!


Today I'm linking up with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May. Click here to join in!

You know how much I love connections layouts, so I'm sure I would love to talk scrapbooking with your Mum. I know from my own Mum's experience a little about how hard it is to give up the activities you love, so I'm glad to hear she still has scrapbooking

Lovely post Melissa! I'm so glad you can spend time with your Mama and do things together you both love. These are the times you'll treasure and cherish in years to come. But I know you already know that and you cherish them now too!

I love that you share a hobby with your mum! And she gets the photographing of everything!

How wonderful that you and your mom have this hobby to share! I love her page about her pregnancies. Those connection pages are something that doesn't happen with Project Life, so I need to think about that a bit.
