Not far from the tree

My Mom is one of the most incredible women I know, she has lived through cancer and struggled with illness her entire life. She has lost so much and yet she still focuses on the possitives in life, she still celebrates all the little things and she still finds the good in everybody. She amazes me and is my hero. I created this layout after finding these photos in my collection. I was just testing the light for a family photo and caught these of her.



Product used Core-dinations Cardstock, Pattern Papers by October Afternoon and buttons by the button box, rub-ons by Basic grey
