SSC Color Challenge: Mom this one's for you!

The colors this week are GORGEOUS!! I want those beads!!

Here's what I did with the colors:

This is my Mom as a baby. Isn't she precious? She looks like a little doll! I have had this picture since I was a little girl and I thought would look beautiful with this color combo. For quite some time, I've been attempting an album just for me. I have layouts of my great-grandparents to layouts of me and my husband dating, etc. It's a hard one to work on, but every once in a while I add to it. I seem to get so wrapped up in scrapping the kids, that I forget about myself :( I decided that one day the kids would want to know about me & their ancestors...and so it began! This beauty is was meant to go in the album, however, I'm going to frame this one and hang it in my stamping room, it's always been a part of my decor and it's a little piece of home...A reminder of where I came from. Having this piece of home means more than you know. Wow, I'm long winded this morning! I have more to say on that, but that will be for another day.
Mom, my biggest fan, I hope you like it!! Love you!
