Here's another layout where I printed my journaling right on the background cardstock. When I have a lot to say, it's helpful to journal that way. Granted, I think it has a different feel from my handwritten layouts, but I like having the mix in my albums.
Here's a closer look at the photos and the title treatment.
Here's a closer look at the journaling.
As I was working with these pictures, I realized I don't have many pictures of myself with my mom. I hate that.While I haven't always been conscious of it, I think that's one of the reasons I like to take so many pics with my daughter. She's pretty good about being a good sport for the constant photos and sometimes even prompts me to take photos when I haven't thought of it. She's a pretty good egg, that girl is. ;)
Here's to hoping that you find a way to document your relationship with your mom and the one with your adult children - the sooner the better.
