My Creative Sketches May Challenge

Here is My Creative Sketches Design Team project for May!! I have been cruising through all the Entries for April Challenge and I must say that they all are just awesome!! This month I decided since it was Mother’s Day and my mom’s Birthday what a wonderful way to celebrate her life and do a Through the years layout. I love seeing my mom when she was little and her being 80 years old this year was a celebration in itself. I am enjoying all the things my mom has taught me and all the laughs that just keep coming. Someday I will think back and laugh at some of the crazy things we have done. If you still have your mother….please be kind to her because you will never get another. I read something that has been etched in my brain is that a child is the only one that truly knows what their mother’s heart beat sounds like. And if you think about it this is the truest statement made. So with as much as I enjoyed making this layout…I will remember her beautiful face when I look at this layout.

Here is my layout

Been a bit Crazy around here.

I know it has been a bit since I have posted. I have been doing some projects for The Lupus Foundation. I have done some stuff to auction off and I thought I would share my creations with you. I have done 2 canvas with the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Doll Stamps. I love working with these and using quotes. I love all things that lift you up instead of bringing you down. I also have dabbled into some vinyl cups. These little things are the most addictive. They are so fun and tedious to do. And the end results are awesome!! I used quotes from the Silhouette store for most of them. So, here are my creations. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!!

Hugs~ Ramona
