We want to thank each and everyone of the sponsors for their generosity. It has been greatly appreciated.
 
Today I am thankful for my mother!  I love her and miss her terribly on days like today.  I am very lucky to still have my mother as she is a cancer survivor.  I just wish I lived a little closer so I could see her more than a few times a year.
 
 
 
This is a digital layout using an old picture I scanned.  I have started with Creative Memories Winter Solstice Pre Designed pages but, of course, I tweaked it to my own needs.  I made the picture bigger and moved it slightly.  I also added some extras, in the center of the tag I added a CM freebie they used to giveaway on their website.  I also added the sleigh, it is an embellishment from Digital Scrapbook Experts Holly Jolly Christmas which made a little less opaque.  The font is Adine Kimberg Alternate.
 
This is the last time I saw my mother, my wedding October 12 of this year.  It hasn't been too long and I will see her again next month. 
 
 
Be thankful for what you have today!
 
Thanks for hopping by!
