Mom and Me Challenge

I am the youngest child in my family... what that means is there are not many of pictures of me from my childhood.  Yes, if you were born before the invention of the digital camera, this might be your story too.  The Cricut Circle is running a challenge this week to scrapbook a page about you and your mom.  My mom died when I was in my early twenties which still can bring me to tears today.  Sometimes I wonder if she would be crafting with her Cricut with me as she was VERY creative.  SO, travel back to 1967 with me to remember my dear mom.

I am sorry your Mom died when you were so young. I am the youngest of 9 girls and don't have any baby pictures, so I can totally relate. I love this layout of your mom in her garden! My mom died when I was almost 30. It is never easy. I am assuming she is holding you on her lap. I love those vintage photos and the buggy in the background!
