      This is the only photo of my mother and I, that I have with me. For quite awhile now I've been meaning to create a special page just for it, and as soon as I laid eyes on the new HopScotch kit I knew straight away what I MUST do!!! The brown cardboard and all the bright little papers and elements so reminded me of unpacking all those boxes and of all my little goodies I had stored away for the big move!

      Here is the journaling:
      "Iíve always, always loved flicking through old family photograph albums...for as long as I can remember! Iím certain the joy I get from scrapbooking is just an extension of this earlier fascination. As a little girl I would pour over my own album (lovingly put together by my mother) for hours, time and time again, year after year! Iím actually suprised it is still in relatively good condition. My beloved albums are all still with my parents - too far away! I so miss all those lovely pics - and my parents and brothers, of course!! LOL! When I moved away from home, many years ago now, I packed up box after box of my belongings in a very organised fashion - ďas only I know how!Ē. While I was unpacking I came across this very random, loose photograph of me as a baby with my mum. How it got there, no-one knows. But I treasure it with all my heart. Itís not the best or the clearest or the cutest and itís loosing its colour, but it is the one that now means the most! What a lovely suprise!!"

      It was my mum's birthday on the day I created this layout - Happy Birthday Mum!! XOXO

      Kylie, that is just so sweet... and a very lovely suprise indeed! You look so peaceful & content, as a baby does safely in "mum's" arms. Very precious journaling, and of course, I love all the details in the l/o, particulary like how you layered the papers.

      Oh kylie what a beautiful, loving and sweet layout!!!! it's a work of art!!!!! . I love the vintage and nostalgic feel here. It's really the perfect kit to tell the story. The photo is totally priceless...you were so cute and your mom was so gorgeous and young!!! and the journaling brought tears to my eyes. I'm just like you with photographs, always have been. My grandmother had lots of photos, and she had 9 kids, but I'm the one in charge of albums and loose photos(scanning, restoring, classifying, etc).
      I love your page so much!!!! it goes straight into my faves . The wordart you created is stunning!!!!!!!!!!

      What a sweet story. It's hard to be far away from family. I just love how you put together your title and the little tags hanging on the string.
