A big thank you and some scrappy goodness!

So today is Mother's Day.

And the word I'm thinking of the most today is....

thanks.
The closer I get to being a mother, the more I appreciate all the things my mother did, and still does for me. And without going into details, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the easiest kid, either!
So if you're reading this mom--thank you.
I love you so much.

[This card was made from Studio Calico's delicious February kit, Candy Shoppe. Here's hoping I can order up some time to play with it more!]

And, in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (I'm a day late, but too much celebration can be a good thing, right?) I have a scrapbook layout for you!

The monthly challenge over at Write. Click. Scrapbook this month was to scrap a day in your life.

I created a similar layout almost two years ago, and it's funny how much has already changed!

Here's my layout from back in October of 2009:

And here is my layout from April of 2011:

In between the two layouts, we've both graduated, so our daily schedules are really different!

Since I was running low on time and didn't have time to order photos (reason #4566677 why I need a Canon Selphy as a birthday present!), I decided to just use a random photo of myself and focus the layout on the journaling.

I kept track of what I did all day on a notepad, and then typed up the schedule as journaling. Using my typewriter, I was able to (mostly) navigate around the embellishments to get all the writing in. I used the Studio Calico April kit on this one. While days like this one (lots of scrapbooking, visit to the mall with a friend), aren't exactly my everyday life, I still love how this layout captures a moment in time in a really detailed way.

Check out what the rest of the WCS girls did here.

So when was the last time YOU created a Day in the Life layout? And what are YOU doing for Mother's Day?

And just a final note on Mother's Day: for those of you reading who aren't mothers yet, hang in there. You aren't alone and before too long we'll all have sticky fingers bringing us breakfast in bed:)

  11. Keshet, is it too cheesy to say that I love you? You have a good heart - and your day will come. I know it will.

  14. Your journaling layouts always rock! BTW, I couldn't have breakfast in bed. Too much help involved (both wanting to help and sit beside me, huge potential for spills) so I opted for sitting surrounded at the dining room table with three sets of eyes watching me consume every crumb of breakfast :) And I had to consume every crumb! LOL! It will come scrappy friend! Hang in there!
