Mom's Memories

My Mom has lots of memories from her early childhood and teenage years. I'm lucky to have early school photos and some of her taken in film booths as a teenager.  She grew up during the depression, yet has many fond memories.  This page is for her.  I made journaling cards for her to hand write some memories and place in the black envelope.

I love the Webster's trim I placed on the corners:

and antique buttons I purchased at the namesake store (Mom's Memories) last weekend.  The Tim Holtz metal was purchased there as a single piece (I did not have to buy a whole pack!).  

Happy Mother's Day! (Pictures beginning in 1932)

I love how you incorporated the envelope onto the page. That way she'll have room for lots of journaling. What a treasure of a page!
