She taught me fun :)

Hi everyone!

Today is my FIRST day on the GCD Studios blog!!! YAY! :)  ((**edited to add** -- I thought this was supposed to go live on the GCD blog ... but it never did ... thanks to those that tried to visit me over there to leave me some love, I appreciate it))


I wanted to share a layout I made about my Mom. With Mother's Day right around the corner, I thought it was the perfect time to create a layout that reminded me of how much I love my Mom! 


I used photos with my Mom from back in the 1970's and I thought the Pure Bliss collection was PERFECT for these photos!
