I Love Being Your Mom

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  If all is going to plan, I am scrapping the day away in my little nook :).  Besides online challenges that I am planning to do, I also hope to at least start on a couple of Mother's Day presents.

Speaking of mothers, the new poem at Scrap That Poetry is called "A Mother's Love." 

The day I made my layout, I didn't feel very much like a loving mother.  It was not a good day, and my patience was nearly gone.  Once the hubby got home I scrapped my feelings about motherhood not always being pretty. 

I grunged up my layout with sloppy paint, ink, crackle medium, and mist.  Sometimes I wonder if my posterity will look back on my layouts and think my life was all rainbows and butterflies, so it feels good to add this slice of actual life to my albums.

We'd love to see you play along!  Perhaps one of your Mother's Day projects could overlap with this challenge :).  Enjoy NSD!  I'm sure I'll be back soon with all the projects I'm working on today!  Tessa
