More on Mother's Mini

I'm hopping around on Mother's mini and am almost half way there.  Above is the cover page using a Prima jewel I bought at Archivers.  That is just about all that brown lace from Webster's pages.  I hate to use it all up.  They have the most gorgeous trims!

The photo of my Mother was taken when she was 17.  I think it is her favorite photo.  The pages below will be near the back of the album.  The first page of Mother with me was shows photos from the 60's.  I went a little more modern with the paper on the later page for the 70's photos.  We will fill in the journaling block when I give her the album.  I can not place the location of the photo taken of the two of us on a green vinyl couch.  Who had a couch like that?  I just can't remember but I bet she will.  Perhaps it will touch off a memory of an event, too.

There are very few photos of my mother and me together when I was growing up - maybe a half dozen total.  It's sad really that no one took pictures.  I'm so glad today that people take so many pictures of their children.  I just hope these photos get preserved and don't stay forever in phones and cameras.  It is one of the best benefits of our scrapbooking hobby - scrapbookers take more photos.

Thanks for visiting!

    I only have 2 photos of my mom and I together and my daughter took it.
    I have not one photo of me as a baby and none of me younger with my mother.
    Your mother will love this album you are making her, it is so special.
    I love to hear stories of younger days. It doesn't even matter if I know anyone in them. Just the joy on the tellers face.
