Story Scrapbook Challenge : Celebrating mom, mum, mother whichever way you say it

Moms, mums and mothers and any other wonderful females in your life –

If you’d like to do a tribute page, then please go right ahead.  If your mom has any funny quirks or sayings that would make a great story.  Did you mother pass on any wise words of wisdom to you?  Are you much like your mum, in looks or personality or habits?

If you have sadly lost your mother, I’m sincerely sorry, is this perhaps a fortuitous time create a page telling of the void she has left?  Perhaps you didn’t get along with your mother and had another female role model you looked to, a special aunt, your grandmother, a family friend?

For some of you it’s a cause of celebration, perhaps it’s your first mother’s day please share, or maybe you’d like to delve into when your mother was a young mum.

Mother’s day in many parts of the world this month and for some it may be painful seeing the world go on, perhaps tell a story of your loss.  You don’t have to share it, just get your words on paper.  We have all had a mum, maybe you knew her, loved her, maybe you didn’t get to know her, maybe you had a difficult relationship.  Tell your story any way you wish, these are your words and your memories to get down.

So this month the story challenge is about mothers.

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

Sarah’s page of the special wave her mother does is a ripper.  It’s these little moments, these little things, they the story means so much because now anyone in the family in years and years to come will always know why they wave up and down!!!  It’s a thing.  I love it.
