♥ The Sweetest Story Ever Told.... ♥

...are the stories shared between mother and child. I love to hear stories from my Mom about when I was a child or even when my mom was a child. And that makes scrapbooking even more special too! Looking back at all those special memories
preserved forever...hearing all the wonderful stories behind the photos. Precious memories.
I made this Mother's Day card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch. This has to be one of my favorite sketches of all time! So fun and it can be used in many different ways.
I used papers by The Girls Paperie and Melissa Frances, Love Mail Creative Scraps by Crafty Secrets, a Studio G stamp, wooden heart, Maya Road chipboard alphas, natural twine, a Martha Stewart mini rose, glitter, trim and lots of mini pearls.

Here is the awesome sketch:

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Mum's the Word
Sentimental Sundays: For those Special Women in your life!

I hope all of you, whether you are in the U.S. or not,  have a happy and wonderful Mother's Day this Sunday and always! Share some stories with your children this Mother's Day! They will be treasured by all for a lifetime! :)

Much love...
