Happy Mother's Day

I have heard from both my children this Mother's Day, and I am so thankful for that. I have been scrapping again today. This layout, like previous layouts this weekend, comprises more than one challenge. I have incorporated 3 of Michelle's challenges from Fisk-a-teers; Distressed, 3 kinds of patterned paper, and a creative quote. I love this background paper. I bought it at the scrapbook outlet while we were in Pigeon Forge for the JS retreat. That store had way too many beautiful types of paper. I used my edge distresser on the background and on the photo mat. The patterned papers are the background, the photo mat, and the photo corner & flower. The creative quote is from one of Clint Eastwood's movies (Dirty Harry, I think and if I'm wrong please let me know.); Go ahead and "Make My Day!" That quote suits the picture and my grandson to a "T!" As a matter of fact, he lives each day to the fullest and truly make the most out of every day. I also included the bingo card with the title "live" on it because of Carter's demeanor.
Also, I used one of Aymee's sketches for guidance in putting this layout together. I know I am prejudice, but she is a fabulous scrapbooking sketch artist.

TFL and Have a Happy Mother's Day!
