Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Mother's Day Blog Hop! I am playing along with some of the wonderful ladies from ClubCK and of course Amanda has once again organized it. Thanks Amanda!

You should have arrived here from Adele's Blog ... If not, head back to the start at Amanda's Blog!

This hop obviously focuses on MOM! I am not a mom yet, but I am sure excited to be one someday soon. Until then and forever after, I will spend mother's day honoring my own mom (and my fiance's).

I always give my mom home made gifts because I know that she really appreciates them. She doesn't care how much money I spend and she knows that just starting my career - I don't have much.

I thought this was such a cute project! I found this super cute wood hanging and I thought I would doctor it up with some awesome October Afternoon Sidewalks goodies! I used the saying "You are my sunshine" because my mom would always sing that to me and my sister when we were younger. I will never forget that. It was a vinyl rub on that filled the hanging perfectly. I made all of my photos black and white for a more uniformed look and added yellow twine to allow it to hang.





This one that I am showcasing is for my mom, but of course I made one for myself too! I just haven't found photos for it yet. I hope you enjoy!

The next stop in the hop is Christy's Blog!

Love the wall hanging. My sister sings that song to my 2-year old nephew and it is so cute to hear him sing it back to her.
