Happy Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing my take on this month's lovely challenge hosted by Kay over at Berry71Bleu.CLICK HERE
I decided to create a page using a photo of my mom and my grandmother.....My mom is very young in the photo.  I called this page "Timeless Grace" because both my mom and grandmother are named Grace.  I have fond memories taking "mini" vacations at my grandmother's home in the Summer time.  I always loved to look at her jewelry and perfume bottles when I was a child.  She is greatly missed.
I altered the beautiful chipboard clock frame provided by UmWowStudio. (This month's design team sponsor)  Thank you!  I also altered various chipboard shapes they provided.
The gorgeous paper I used for this project is from 7 Dots Studio.  It's called "Destination Unknown"
Below is this month's beautiful mood board.

All About Mom - May2015 Challenge by Kay
All About Mom - Pay tribute to your own mom or create a project based on your own thoughts & feelings about being a mom.

The mood board was created with several thoughts & quotes on mom or motherhood along with photos that Kay felt represented the bond between a mother & child.
