Kim’s May DT Reveal
What kind of May DT reveal would it be without a salute to my Mom??!
I loved how soft the peachy tones are in the Maggie Holmes Confetti line…perfect for scrapping my mom who happens to love peachy colours!!
Love that SN offers cork in a 12×12 sheet which I used as my background and it great to die cut too!! Here I used some die cut cork hearts to make some “love-ly” stick pins…
I used the treat bags for some hidden journalling…a verbal “treat” lol!!…
This woman is one of the most amazing people I know.
I didn’t always know that about her. I admit, for many many years while growing up she drove me absolutely crazy with her random logic and impossible rules. I didn’t understand that she was looking out for me and my sister the very best she could. I didn’t understand how much she sacrificed to be our mom. I didn’t know and I was an impossible child. I had a very strong will and a stubborn streak that broke alot of the adults in my world. But she was never one of them. She put up with my temper tantrums (still does) and listened to me rant and rave (still does) because she knew that I needed to. She took the brunt of my anger and frustration more times than she ever deserved and she would wait out the storm and then hug me and tell me she loved me. She wasn’t a saint and made her share of mistakes but I always knew she was in my corner no matter how out of sync I felt with her. To be honest I didn’t realize how amazing she was until I had kids of my own. Now I get how impossible it feels sometimes to try to do what’s right for you and your kids when life overwhelms. And for many years she did it all on her own. There are so many decisions that I know she made that broke her heart to make but she did because it was in my best interest. Including leaving her home, her friends, and her successful business to move an hour away just so she could be close by me while I was sick. She took care of Caitlin and then Maegan for days at a time because I was too weak to move. She brought food that I couldn’t eat. She hid her disappointment and fear so that I could concentrate on getting well. She fielded questions from family and friends so I could save what strength I had. And she bit her tongue and allowed me to play even though it scared her because she knew that sitting at home and living in a bubble was no life at all for me. I couldn’t have gotten through that part of my life without her and I can’t imagine life without her.
Thank you mom. I love you more than I can ever express. Happy mother’s day!
This felt a little outside my comfort zone but I’m stoked over how it turned out!!
I have really enjoyed playing with the Confetti line and I have to say…WAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!! I love it when a paper line pushed me to try something a little different..Hope you do something today that is a little outside of your comfort zone and be sure to share it with us!!
Thanks for letting me share!
