Gallery Standouts – May 15th

15 May

Greetings scrappy friends!!  Here we are – a new week is at hand already, and May is half over!  Wow!

I’ve been on the go for the past couple of days and there wasn’t much computer time for me, so I’m happy to be able to relax this evening and enjoy the beautiful photos in the galleries around digi-land!

This page, aptly named, Mother created by scrapbookmama makes my heart all squishy!  The vintage photos are a treasure for her to have!!  What a lovely tribute to her Mother!! I love the bright pinks in contrast with the dark colors in the cropped paper and the ribbon.  And those crocheted leaves are too cute!

Mimisgirl created a heartwarming page also using the title Mother.  That sweet face is so precious – it’s so obvious how deep the bond between the two of them is!  Another page that tugs at my heartstrings!!  Mimigirls cluster work is just phenomenal – the ribbons tucked away so perfectly under the flower elements give her page perfect depth!

Well since I’ve stumbled onto the “Mom” theme with the first two layouts, I may as well continue on … check out Mom and Me created by Electra … I love the colors against the wood background and love how she’s used so many different shapes on her page!  The contrast of the straight lines and round elements and hearts is perfect!  Her title work says it all … “blessed” … where we would be without our Moms?!  And the photo is all kinds of wonderful!

I can completely appreciate and understand the poem on the lovely layout that vixen has created.  Her page is entitled Mom and is so touching!  The poem speaks of missing the good times and appreciating them before they are gone – that is something that we should all take heart with and hold on to!!  Vixen’s page is so simple, yet speaks volumes!  Thank you for sharing your special tribute page in your gallery!!

The layout Conny created stood out to me because of the bright, bold and beautiful colors!!  Her page, also titled Mom conveys just how strong the bond is between a Mom and her daughter!  The photo is so fun and just oozes L O V E !!

Glee‘s Mom & Us, Now and Then page puts a huge smile on my face!  I am sure that her Mom’s heart was filled with just as much joy in 2015 as it was in 1956 because she was with her children.  A mother’s love is something that can be so hard to explain, yet, the smiles on their faces tells the whole story!!  The layering of the different background papers and the placement of the scatter element make Glee’s page shine!

So I truly didn’t intend on searching out pages that focused on “moms”, but that’s what happened and I glad it did!!  My heart is warm and fuzzy remembering my own Mom who has been gone six years – time marches on, but her memory will be in my heart forever.  What a blessing it is that we can create layouts focused around our Moms!

Thanks for stopping by today – hope you have a fantastic day!!  Until next time – happy scrapping friends!!
