May Scrap The Girls

Tehehehe...nothing like a last minute dash to enter at least ONE of the challenges I had bookmarked for this month!
I really loved the criteria over at Scrap The Girls this month

Scrap a layout based on an important female in your life.
Extra criteria: more than 20 words of handwritten journalling

Yeah. The most important woman in my life.

I've had these papers and the gorgeous crochet flowers and brads on my desk for about 2 months now. Every time I sit down to scrap I itch to use them, but I haven't had time.
Finally, I used them, and they make me happy :)
Lots and lots of layers and lots and lots of colour!
It was so much fun to sit and shuffle papers and just choose whatever made me smile. Lots of October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket...some Basic Grey even thrown in for good measure ;)
I just love this pic of me and my mum :)
She was such a young mum.
Only 18 when I was born. I wouldn't have been half the mum she was if I had had my babies that young. She truly was incredible.
I miss her so much.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful week :)
