Challenge YOUrself Blog #77 - "I got it from my Mama!" Happy Mother's Day!

Hello everyone - I hope this post is finding you and your family doing well during these unprecedented times! We have been staying at home since May 13th, and I am blessed to be able to continue to work from home and to have scrapbooking as my creative escape!

 This month we are celebrating "MOMS" at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  We ask that you include a photo of YOU in your layout too!  It can be a layout about YOU and your Mom, or YOU and your child/children, -and those children can be ones with 2 legs, or a furry ones with 4 legs, or even someone that YOU are like a Mom to - or that is like a Mom to YOU! We hope you can join us!

Here is my Design Team layout for your inspiration! 
I chose a photo of when my beautiful Mom and I went to see the play Cinderella 
at the Papermill Playhouse here in New Jersey.

I actually participated in on on-line crop last weekend, hosted by My Little Scrapbook Store - I am a designer for them as well.  Michelle and her daughter Carrie are super sweet and they have a great Facebook Group where you can find info about future on-line crops, and see videos from many of the other talented design team members!  Please check them out!

Speaking of videos - I did my second Facebook Live event, and showed how I took the design from one of my favorite past layouts, and used it as inspiration for this layout - 
Here is the link to that Facebook Live - Feel free to check it out and you can see how I created my layout - I also show you how to "gut" you paper - a great way to save paper - and how to make a pocket to tuck a journaling card in behind your photo!

And finally - here is my layout-

I'm loving the colors in this Mama Llama Collection 
from Simple Stories!!

Here are some close-ups for you:
The Llamas are just soo cute!!

This is a journaling card that I tucked behind the photo, I will journal about our day on the back.

I DO have the BEST MAMA EVER  - and I am bless that she is not just my Mom - but my Best Friend and I am also luck to call her my neighbor - as we live next door to each other - which is very comforting in these crazy times!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you get a chance to check out my video, showing how I created this layout, and that I've inspired you to play along with us at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!
((BIG HUGS)) - Stay safe and be well!
