Challenge of the Week 5/8/09

This week at LPS it was my turn to post the challenge. I decided to go with the popular Mother's Day theme on my challenge. I asked the ladies to do a layout about yourselves as a mother, or about your own mother! I used one of my favorite photos of myself and Aline when she was just a baby. I think it's a beautiful shot (thanks, Greg!), and it really shows the fatigue I was experiencing. I wrote about how much I loved my new baby, and how nothing prepares you for becoming a parent. The papers were from the Cosmo Cricket Everafter project kit. The papers are so beautiful, it's actually hard to cut into them!
