Make It Monday, Anything Goes, Remember Remember and some Blog Candy

I have decided to join a few challenges this week. I have cheated a bit and have picked a project that I did a while ago. This is something that is near and dear to my heart, it is a memorial page I made in memory of my Mom.

She was the most beautiful person, she will always be remembered as a loving, caring person. She taught us that there is always room in our heart to help someone and to love one more. Your heart continues to grow and knows no boundaries. It has been 6 years and I still miss her. With the holidays approaching, I guess I am a bit sentimental.

The poem on this page is one that I wrote myself, I am including a PDF with all the pieces if you decide you want to try this layout yourself. I primarily used Scriptina because when printed on vellum and transparencies it is barely visible. I also used Merced on the poem.

You will also note that I have a wee-bit of quilling on this layout. I was looking through the album and the quilling has weathered being in a scrapbook that is not always right side up very well which makes me happy!

I love quotes and will spend hours looking for just the right one. For the mini album, I put a photo of my mom and the following quote “Live so that people on Earth will be sorry to lose you, but the Angels will be glad to welcome you in heaven.” (sorry, I don’t remember who it is from and I didn’t find it in a quick search – if you know, let me know and I will make the update)

I have a PDF with the poem and background, click here to retrieve it.
