All About Mom - May2015 Challenge by Kay

Welcome to May Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here hosting this month's challenge.  For this month I felt that mom & the concept of motherhood needed a well deserved tribute.  In several parts of the world, including the United States, May is the month where we celebrate Mother's Day.  With this in mind--the challenge for May is: 
All About Mom - Pay tribute to your own mom or create a project based on your own thoughts & feelings about being a mom.

The mood board was created with several thoughts & quotes on mom or motherhood along with photos that I felt represented the bond between a mother & child.

So here I am with my own little guy.  He's my one & only & I can't even put into words how complete he made me once he came into this world.  There's not one day that he doesn't make me smile or forget about my worries.  All he has to do is hug me & all my stress is gone.  I still find it amazing to see a little part of me running around--he's got my eyes, my sense of humor & my wit.  He's a small version of me & he encourages me to stay young at heart & reminds me of the innocence of child hood on a daily basis.  

Being a mom is a very fulfilling emotion mixed in with anticipation--since I wonder daily about the man he's going to grow up to be--joy, love & a pinch of fear since I worry daily if I'll be equipped to get him adequately prepared for all the obstacles, ups & downs he'll encounter along this long journey we call 'Life'.

For my layout I've used papers from the 'Classique - Beauty' collection by Authentique.  The collection consists of grays, blacks & yellows--I added the red to give my page a bold splash of color.

I've incorporated a few square chipboard pieces by Um Wow Studio as embellishments.  I left the chipboard pieces bare because I felt they coordinated fine with my page--these chipboard pieces can be altered to your liking if needed.  They can be heat embossed, painted, misted, glittered...etc...

I chose this saying 'forever & more' because it represents how long I plan on being there for him.  Even when he's old & gray--he'll still be my little guy.  :-)

This butterfly embellishment is hand made by yours truly.  This is a tid-bit from my Etsy shop & is part of the 'Sentiment on Wings' collection.  I felt that the saying 'You are my sunshine' was so very appropriate for the theme of my page.

Looking forward to seeing all of your creations!
