Day 2 of the Mothers and Daughters Creations Mother’s Day Traditions Blog Roll

Welcome to Day 2 of the very first Mothers and Daughters Creations Mother’s Day Traditions Blog Roll. You can find all of the exciting details about this blog roll on the main Mothers and Daughters Challenge Blog, where our own Linda, the “Mother” half of Mothers and Daughters, has put together a collection of fun and sentimental poems, sentiments, and journaling suggestions.

Today I’m challenging you to create a scrap book page from a sketch. The sketch was actually inspired by a very special layout I created with the only two photos I have of my Grandmother & 2nd daughter, Emily.

I was very close to my grandmother while I was growing up. I used to enjoy going there for a week every summer, as well as monthly visits for wonderful Italian dinners! She made the best sauce!!
When I was older & had my 1st daughter, she was thrilled to be able to spend time with her. And when it came time for grand-baby #2, she was SO excited to be able to meet her too!! Unfortunately, she fell ill not long before Emily was born, and was unable to make it see her. So, as soon as I was able to travel, we brought Emily to see her. It was the first, and sadly the last, time she got to see & hold her. It's a moment I will always remember & cherish.

So, my challenge for you.... make a layout honoring a special woman in your life – grandmother, mom, daughter, aunt, best friend, mother-in-law – using this sketch as your inspiration, and upload it to any gallery or your blog. Then, post a comment with a link here on my blog so we can see it. And when you post, tell us a little bit about the woman honored on your page. You have until 12 noon on Saturday, May 16th, to submit a layout for a chance to win a Crafty Arts chipboard album. The winner of this challenge will be selected the following day (May 17th) and announced both here on my blog and on the MDC Challenge blog as well.
Here is the Sketch:
And here is my layout:

Need some inspiration? Check out these samples made by my fellow design team members Melita and Laurie. Visit their blogs and post a comment for a chance to win an extra “mystery prize" to be announced later in our blog roll.

I can't wait to see your layouts & hear your stories!!

Have A Great Day!
