Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop.......ok, my last post covered 2 of the 6 challenges. This layout will cover the other 4 challenges in the blog hop....and more, of course....you know me. The description below will encompass the other four sites in the blog hop. Below will be the other challenges which helped inspire the entire layout.
This layout is in memory of my mother who passed away in 1997. The theme of the layout was inspired by the poem "An Easter Flower Gift" at Scrap that Poetry . The layout itself was inspired by the sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. All the glitter and bling, bling, bling was inspired by the Cuttlebug Spot and Practical Scrappers.
The one picture shows my dad and mom....the other my mom, grandfather, grandmother, my sister, and I when we were very young. I love this picture.
