Submitted this one for JJ's Challenge 57. The challenge is to create a layout journaling the lessons taught you either by your Mom or your children.

This is my take:

Journaling: Being your mom is a gift. It has taught me to love unconditionally, to go beyond myself for there are more important things other than ME. It has given me so much happiness that I cherish everyday. I wish I can be with you all the time so I can watch you two grow before my very eyes.

Materials used: Papers and stickers by Websters (Magical Wishes Collection), Colorbox inkpad, ribbon, blings, prima flowers, Stamps by Prima (Build a Border Volume 1) and AL (Elegant Fluorishes).

This is definitely not the usual style that I scrap - - but I have to use the Websters pack that I won last January right? The whole time I was doing this layout, I was invoking my inner Iris (Babao-Uy, master scrapbooker extraordinaire). Funny, when I showed this layout to my family and officemates, they all told me that they didn't think I was the one who made it - - too different from the graphic/bold/bright/cartoonish me (I couldn't agree more, truth is, I wanted to tell them that it wasn't really me but my inner Iris - - but I just shut up for they might think I'm schizo!!! LOL)
