Exploring Cricut & More Mother's Day Challenge

Welcome to Exploring Cricut & More's Mother's Day Challenge! My project today is a scrapbook layout that also doubles as my May calendar!

This has been a very trying year for my Mom. In late January, she developed a huge blood clot in her leg that tried to travel up her leg and into the main artery. They got it stopped, but she had been in the hospital and rehab facilities for about 6 weeks, and finally got to go home in March, but only with 24 hour care. It's now down to where I spend about 2-3 hours a day with her, she's doing so much better! This layout/calendar is a tribute to both my Mom & my husbands Mom. I'm going to suprise them with a brunch at my house.

I used Designer Calendar for the month using the script font & script font shadow. The sentiment is from the Mother's Day cartridge, and the flowers are from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. The paper is from the DCWV Cherry Limeade paper pack.

Don't forget to enter the challenge, as the prize this week is a Cuttlebug "Love is in the Air" Embossing collection-

Be sure to check out the design teams projects and make your mother something special for Mother's Day!

I'm also entering this at Moxie Fab World NSD Scrapbooking.(It wasn't a top 5, but it got a shout out!)
