Story Scrapbook Challenge : Female advice and life lessons

So with Mother’s Day upon us in this part of the world, I know not everywhere, but for many many countries, I wanted to base my story scrapbook challenge this month on female advice.

Think of some sage advice your mum or your grandma handed down to you, or some words of wisdom an important woman in your life lived by.  Is there something in your heart that you desperately want your son or daughter to know and learn that you’d like to share.

Is there a conversation with your mum that sticks out or a trait she had and whether you have that same trait (or not).

Have you read an awesome female centred quote that just resonated?  Do you have a female role model that you aspire to and why?  Has there been a female teacher that believed in you with words of encouragement?  Do you have a strong woman in your life that you’d like to pay homage to by what they’ve taught you or how they’ve lived?

We want to hear it all.  Let’s say cheers to the women in our lives.

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages:

I love these life lessons that Kate’s mother has passed onto her, and how lucky to have these gorgeous photographs in her possession.  Kate’s mum sounds like my kind of lady, I love these standards.

What a ripper photograph and story from Shannon.  Can you even imagine having a washer like this.  I loved reading about Shannon’s mother’s traits of her laundry, very methodical.  These are the stories we want to scrapbook so these snippets of life of yesteryear are never forgotten.

And for my page I document the life lessons and traits my mum has instilled in me over the year.  Not a bad set of values if I do say so myself.
