Make an Elegant Mother's Day Home Decor Piece!

May is National Scrapbooking month and Michaels Stores is showcasing all kinds of fun ideas and projects that "Make Every Moment Count".  To see Michaels "Look Book" of scrapbooking ideas for the "Make Every Moment Count" theme, head over HERE.  There are some quick, fun Mother's Day ideas there, as well as graduation and Military themed projects.

Michaels contacted me recently and asked me to create a project around this theme. A 3-D Mother's Day project seemed to be a fun way to showcase kids' photos.
