Walking In Mama's Shoes

Marissa says KAYA!

Making this mini reminded me of days when I made and sold greeting cards. I had fun making these pages. I thank Pinoyscrapbookers for the ideas and inspiration; and thank you, Marian, for the challenge.
These are pictures of my daughter when she was still a toddler. I am so glad that I took pictures any time, any where because without these pictures to remind me, I've already forgotten these specific moments.

Materials Used:

Holder is a photo holder that is a part of a desk set [file holder, memo holder, desk pad...]. Scraps of DCWV Spring cardstocks; K-Ology Berry Sweet, Blooms & Butterflies, My Paper Studios, Sei flower/border cut-outs, colored wire, seed beads; Stickles, ColorBox chestnut Roan, decorative edge scissors, My Paper Studios Sticky Doos, decorative-edged scissors; Miss Elizabeth plastic foam alpha stickers [IYQ], Doodlebug border; Scotch quick-dry adhesive, cut-out dresses from Nana's Nursery (Girls) ; Fiskars edge puncher
I pasted cut-outs on white cardstocks and cut them again. This gave them some dimension. I shaped the pink colored wire into a flower; strung beads in a blue wire and strung cut-out dresses for the clothes line. Doodled on some of the edges of the mats/frames. Tearing and hand-sewing.
About Me:

So many memories to put into readable form. In order to catch up I do both digital and traditional scrapbooking. When I make my pages, everything gets out of the plastic containers and get mixed up in the process. I do not have time to take note of what supplies I used. That alone, takes too much time. It's different with digital supplies though. Since I get most of them for free, the least I could do is take note of the supplies they open-heartedly shared. TFL...
