Mothers Day Week - Then & Now

Happy almost Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Today I'm sharing a "then and now" layout with you about my mom and me. I've always wanted to make a page like this so when Heidi was handing the assignments out I made sure I signed up for this one!

 I used an old photo of my mom and me when I was a few weeks old, as well as a more current photo.

For this page, I used my die cutting machine to cut a pattern of circles out of cream colored cardstock, then filled in some of the negative space with punched circles. I used patterned papers from Oh Happy Day, Splendor and Country Charm.

I really think it's true - you don't fully appreciate the hard work and sacrifice your own mother made for you you until you become a mom yourself. I hope you'll document this on one of your own pages soon! Happy mom's day :)
