Designs by Mom

My mom and dad came for a visit from Washington state and we were able to spend a little time in my messy, but colorful basement craft room.

My mom is just recovering from chemo treatments for Lymphoma, which is now in remission -- Praise God. So this was the first time in over 9 months that she had a chance to paper craft.

She made these fabulous journals for the ladies in her Bible study.

The top is using DP from Archivers that was in the Girl Scouts section. Although it is difficult to see, she cut out many of the flowers and mounted them on top to give a little pop.

The next one uses one of my favorite Bellas "sweetybellas" -- MWAH!

This journal highlights a new Magenta stamp that I bought at the Cottage Stamper. It is a beautiful image of a bird inside a frame. I love that this image doesn't need to be colored.

Finally, for this journal she used my scalloped circle Nestabilities. She also used a new Inkadinkadoo stamp with these fabulous butterflies.

I think we've now officially made journals for everyone!
