"Mom" Layout & Riley Thank You Card

I've been trying to do as many of the National Scrapbook Day Challenges from Let's Scrap! as I can and these pictures are from one of the challenges.

The challenge was to 1)make the subject -mother, 2)use a Let's Scrap! sketch, and then 3)make a card from the scraps. I made a layout about my mom.

This picture is from a trip we take each year with my aunt. The three of us go to Arkansas in October for the craft festivals and we have been doing it for 20 years! It is tons of fun and we have started taking my RV which makes it even better because we can drive our little home to each craft festival and if one of us gets tired, bored or hungry, we can just go back to the "house". In the evening, after spending all our money, (ha) we go and stay at a beautiful campsite. This picture is of my mom sitting in the RV as we drive down the road.

The card is a thank you card for my son's teacher. I have been trying to make several thank you cards as I will need one for each their teachers and this challenge motivated me to get another one done. I think I will make some similar ones for the other kids because I think their teachers would like a card with a picture on it...what do you think??


  1. These are sooo cute! Riley's teacher is going to love her card! Probably be the best one she gets! I also love the title of Mother. So so pretty. Your mom's smile is awesome!

  2. You don't know how relieved I was that you put a picture of me that looks cute. Note: I didn't say I was cute but that the picture is cute. And you page isn't bad either....grin.. (I do not remember this picture but sure remember the good times we have.)

  3. That Riley melts my heart saying cheese.... I really like his card and I think all the teachers would like one that you have made..
