♥ Grandmas are moms... ♥ {MOJO331}

...with lots of Frosting. What a cute sentiment! This one definitely applies to my mom! My mom is the sweetest mom and grandma there is! No matter what, she is ALWAYS there for her children and grandchildren. Mom, I love you so much! ♥

I haven't had much time lately to participate in many challenges as I would like to, but as soon as I saw this weeks sketch over at the Mojo Monday Challenge Blog, I knew I had to use it! And I also knew I had to use the adorable Homemade With Love line by Carta Bella for it. Such a sweet line! Love the yummy pastel papers!

That sentiment that I cut from one of the papers is just too cute! This would make a sweet Valentine's Day card for a Grandma from the grandchildren! ;) I added a little somethin', somethin' to the card to give it a little sparkle...sequins and Liquid Pearls.

Here is the fabulous Mojo Monday Sketch! Love it!!

Today we lost an 8 year old in my family. A cousin on my dad's side. He was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was only 8 months old. The doctors said he would only live for a few days numerous times over the years. But he was so strong and kept on pushing. He was stronger than most adults I know. He was 1 month and 1 day away from his 9th birthday. He was born on the same day as my son, just a year earlier. So while he will be dearly missed, his suffering and pain is gone. So please say a prayer for Shawn and his family. Heaven has a new angel.

♥ Hug and kiss your children. ♥

What a great take on the sketch and I LOVE the sentiment. I'm not a grandma yet but we have 2 getting married this year so you never know.
So sorry for your loss. I will keep you all in my prayers. He's been an angel from the start.
