Motherhood Challenge

I hope you enjoyed Mother's Day weekend! I was spoiled with handmade cards, pictures, a flower brooch made by Maryn, a long nap, chocolate strawberries, dinner, and a game of croquet from my sweet kids. :D I feel so lucky to be their mother. My life just wouldn't be the same without them in it. :D

Speaking of Motherhood . . . There is a new challenge up on the Noel Mignon Challenge blog today, the Motherhood Challenge.

I created this page using the Noel Mignon Playdate kit and a sketch by Scrapbook Challenges telling my children how much they mean to me. :) The background is spritzed with Jeni B. Bleu by Shimmerz Paints.






The words on my page were not only inspired by the challenge video, but also one of my favorite songs. "All My Love" by Loose Ties (Tangled Roots album). This is the kind of song that even though it has a happy bluegrass beat to it, I tear up everytime I listen to the words. I've told Kevin that this song is dedicated to our children from me and he better make sure someone plays/sings it at my funeral. :D

Here are the words of the song if you're curious at all. I'd link you up, but bluegrass songs are pretty difficult to find at places like Playlist.com. ;) I *think* this might be a remake of a rock song, but I couldn't confirm that anywhere online. Hmmmm. I think I threw out all of my CD jackets when we got an iPod . . . If any of you know, pass on the information to me . . . I'd love to find out for sure. :)


ALL MY LOVE by Loose Ties (Tangled Roots album)

You can say goodbye, you can close the door,
You can drift ‘til the tide washes you ashore
You can throw me out, you can be untrue
You can break my heart, but I’ll still love you

And I want you to know, you can count on me
Like each moment in time, it will always be
For as long as I live, and with all my might
All that I have to give, All my love, all my life

On the day you came, how the sun did shine
And you had no name, so I gave you mine
And the world will turn, many things you’ll see
But you’ll never learn what you mean to me.

And I want you to know, you can count on me
Like each moment in time, it will always be
For as long as I live, and with all my might
All that I have to give, All my love, all my life

When the days get long, and the nights grow cold
And the lonesome wind tries to chill your soul
You can call my name, you can hold my hand
I have known the same, I will understand

And I want you to know, you can count on me
Like each moment in time, it will always be
For as long as I live, and with all my might
All that I have to give, All my love, all my life

All my love, all my life
All my love, all my life


DON'T FORGET!!! Today is the last day to turn in your applications for the Noel Mignon Design Team Call!



Also, there are only 17 of the Brand New Lemonade Stand kits left!!!




Have a great week!
Jana
