MOthEr's DaY MIni AlBuM

Happy Mother's Day.... IN a few days!
Still stumped on your mother's day gift?
Here is an idea that was inspired by a thread on the
Itty Bitty Scrap Shack message board.
I made a mini album asking the question
"What Makes An Amazing Grandma?"
I have 4 kids, and I devoted 2 pages to each of them.
On one side we put a recent B & W photo of them, and on the other, they answered the question & wrote a little personal note to their "memama".
Anabelle (my 20 mth old) obviously can't write, so I typed up a poem about grandmas & used it for her page. This could also work for a child that isn't school age yet, or you could write out the thoughts of a toddler for them.
I tied a coordinating ribbon around the book & attached a little charm.
See pics below!!









Thanks for looking... now get scrapping!!
