Default Mom's album

Well, I started work on my Mom's album that I have been asked to make for her "Celebration" that we are having for her this summer. I am also wrapping up everything here for her too with her house, taxes, and the estate so I was not sure if I would even get a chance to get this done for everyone but I am going to try my best. I am going to rely on "Project Life" from PW for most of it just so I can get it done. Also I will leave those Project life cards out for people to fill in with their own memories on to so I can pop those in there too. This is just the start and NOT my best work but it is the hardest thing I've done so I forgive myself and I know she'd like it anyway...Mom's are like that .

Think of it as telling her story and honoring her.....I'm sure she appreciates it very much.

I agree with the others. I really liked the picture of her as Minnie Mouse. Every one's going to appreciate being able to add a special memory to it. Judi

She will love it no matter what, but I understand you want it to be super-special - and it will be - YOU made it! And she will absolutely love reading all those memories - I think that's a wonderful idea!

When we had my MIL's 85th celebration, we had journaling cards out on the table and asked everyone who came in to write her a note or jot down a memory - whatever they liked. She got very misty-eyed reading all of them after!

What a nice album and idea for you to leave the cards out for folks to write on! Is the celebration going to be a large one?
