Our May Mother's Day Challenge Reminder and Inspiration from our Sponsors - Les Papier des Pandore

Hi there everyone!!
HELEN here.
How is May going for you?!
We are almost at the end of it now and as such you need to 
think about getting those entries in for our May Challenge!

We have 16 entries so far - woohoo!  Thank you to everyone
who has taken the time to participate - we really appreciate it!!

For those of you that haven't found the time to play along yet - 
here is a reminder of what May's Challenge is all about,
as well as our Challenge Rules, which are important to follow
if you would like to be considered in our judging/to stand a 
chance to win one of our prizes.

In honor of Mother’s Day I am centering the challenge around 
your favorite quote/poem/song about Mothers. 

Here are some examples, feel free to use them if you like!

 “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.

“ A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, ‘where mother is’. “ ~ Keith Brooks

A mothers heart is a patch work of love.

 “ A mothers happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected 
also on the past in the guise of fond memories.” ~ Honore de Balzac

 “ What are Raphael’s Madonna’s but the shadow of a mothers love, fixed in 
permanent outline forever?” ~ Thomas Wentworth Higginson

 Or if you prefer songs:-

 Coat of Many Colors – Dolly Parton

 Somebody’s Hero – Jamie O’Neal

 I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack

 Dear Mama – 2Pac

 A song for Mama – Boyz II Men


As always there are a few basic rules to follow:-

1. You are allowed to make a card, layout or altered/off the page project 
as long as you follow the theme or challenge of the month.

 2. This challenge is open to anyone anywhere in the world.
