Happy National Scrapbooking Day: Love Ya Momsie!

Hi Crafty Friends,
HAPPY NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY! I started as a scrapbooker so this is near and dear to my heart. I also worked at Archivers for years! Do you remember that great scrapbooking store? I was the Receiving Supervisor so I got to see all the goodies before you did!
In honor of the day Kat Scrappiness is hosting a week long challenge! Since many of you don't scrapbook we are including any project for this one. The theme is MARVELOUS MOTHERS! Make any project that fits this theme, it can be a scrapbook page, a card, a tag, mixed media etc. just focus on mom. It doesn't have to be your mom, it can be you, your grandma, a friend who is a mom, a sister, an aunt. Enter your project in the linky below, you have from today May 4th to May 10th to enter. The winner will be announced on Mother's Day! The prize is

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is the best thing your mom past down to you? It can be a personality trait, physical appearance, anything!
A: Me? My mom past down empathy and kindness. I have never been a bully and can easily put myself in others shoes. On the vain front... she gave me great blue eyes and dimples!
I made a scrapbook page! This is a picture from last year when my mom turned 70! She looks amazing for 70 right? I have good genes! I threw her a surprise party with all her friends! It was priceless. Here is how I created my page!
I started with this darling MOM patterned paper. I found matching solid papers and framed my photo with both yellow and pink.
I left about a 1/4 in border for my frames, I taped the framed photo to the center of my page.

Next I used the Kat Scrappiness dies and cut out 12 yellow hearts from the Layering Heart Die Set (fits ALL Kat Scrappiness Decorative Heart sets!) and 12 pink out of the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fancy Scalloped Hearts!
 I taped them down and glued on the blue lettering to spell my name and what I call my mom... MOMSIE :). I finished the page adding the die cut LOVE YA and the enamel dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create! Link up your project below and tell us about your mom! You can leave a comment here or on my blog with your "Make Crafty Friends Q & A" Answer! Don't forget to use your discount TODAY 15%!
