Over the last few months I have met so many wonderful people who attend our Stamp & Scrapbook Expos. I am very grateful for all of the wonderful friendships I have made. I am also very grateful for all of you who follow me from week to week and month to month on our blog. I would like to welcome every one of you, new followers as well as old friends, and I hope you will find weeks and months of wonderful inspiration ahead. I also want to say to all you moms out there that you are appreciated, you are loved, and you are valued. You shape our world. I love this quote: “A mother is one who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.” I hope each of you has a wonderful Mother’s Day!
Sometimes the best way to thank our moms is with a special and heartfelt mini album full of memories of the two of you together. Mini albums are a perfect gift! They bring a smile to anyone’s face by sharing memories that have so much love and meaning. Not only will this be a warm and fuzzy gift, but it will be treasured forever. Let’s not forget the almost-instant gratification, since you can complete a gorgeous mini album in one sitting. What instant enjoyment for you and also the one receiving your special gift
Dorymar created her album using the Romance Collection. This is a great collection because it has so many lovely elements that make a mini album look very well put together. When I think of love I always think of my wonderful mother. What a special little album to create full of details about the many wonderful times we have shared together. If you are still wondering just what you are going to give your mother, grandmother, or even a special person in your life for Mother’s Day, it isn’t too late to start creating one right now. This really doesn’t take much time and I know you will have so much fun creating it. Let me take you on over to Simple Stories so you can see how Dorymar created hers. You will see the inside of each of her pages as well. I know you are going to be excited when you visit Dorymar’s blog post about this adorable mini album.
