Scrapbooking with flowers, ribbons and all things beautiful -- with BOYS!

If you're like me, a Mother to Boys and a little more then addicted to scrapbooking - the paper, ribbons, flowers, buttons, glitter, you might be wondering how to incorporate all those finds into the perfect layout! I'm here to help! At least, I'll try. I've been scrapbooking for about 8 years and have only recently decided I was done with holding back on all the beautiful embellishments and am going to start using them. Hope you enjoy my journey!

Monday's Child...Missing My Mom

There's nothing like a picture to prompt you down a journey.  This picture prompt, from Monday's Child, took me back to my childhood and those few times I actually baked with my mom.  My mom passed away when I was 21, fresh out of college and do I ever miss her!  Thanks for the prompt - I hope you like my verse. 

Missing Mom...

Will you make a cake with me?
I bet we'd make it great!
Will you make a pie with me,
No matter how long it takes?
Will you show the world to me,
and all that you have learned?
Tell me if you can do this, Mother,
even now that I am old.

For I miss my mother's love,
this night, to guide me in my life.
I want my mother's love again,
to show me the way to do things right. 


  1. Oh it is a beautiful verse and tribute to your mother... at times all we want is that guiding hand to help us and show us how to do something and be there to listen as they can only do.... blessings Tiffany...thank you for posting....bkm

  2. Beautiful; where would we be without Mother's guiding hand! I am sure what she taught you will guide you always.

  3. Beautiful tribute to your mother, loved your writing :)
