Just Like Mum (OUAS & Glitz Design)

I am so proud to be sharing with you today a layout i made dedicated to none other than my Mother!

I have to say that i have been blessed to have had a mother so dedicated, so strong, so attentive...  We have always had a special bond, and whatever hardships we have gotten through together have just strengthened that bond even more.  8 years ago, almost to the day, i lost my father to cancer, and during the 6 painful months of his illness, i have seen my mom caring for him at home to the very end, showing endless patience and constant nurturing.  She has always been and will always be my main inspiration in life, a role model like no other!

So, when i saw that this month's challenge at Once Upon a ...Sketch was to make a layout for "Mum", i was more than happy to do so.  Here is the beautiful sketch provided by OUAS followed by my layout.
 The journaling reads:  "Free spirit, happy, amazing, brave, pretty - This is what she is to me and so much more...  not only my mother, but also my best friend.  Every day, I am inspired to be just like Mum."

You will perhaps recognize the exquisite Pretty in Pink collection by Glitz Design whose May blog challenge was also to honour our mothers!
Here are some close-up shots of my layout:

Now here's to all the great Mums out there, as well as mine...
