Scrapbook Page of the Week..."A Mother's Love"

Happy Friday! It's been a very loooong and stressful week at work. Needless to say, I'm thankful that this week is finally behind me and I'm really looking forward to some down time at home this weekend to clear my head!

Now on to funner things!! I want to share a scrapbook page that I created a while back, which highlights a photo that I had enlarged. Mike took the photo of Justin and me on Justin's 2nd birthday back in 1991. It's one of my favorites, so I had to make a special scrapbook page with it. The story behind the photo is that we were in our backyard and Justin was really tired from all of the birthday celebration hoopla, so I picked him up and was getting ready to take him inside and put him down for a nap when Mike snapped the photo. He was so little and sweet, and just wanted his mama to hold him....oh those were the days!!

You'll notice that in the lower left corner of the layout I've added a metal frame that houses a photo of Justin and me in 2003, which is when I created this scrapbook page.  Here's a close-up photo of that detail...sorry that there's a little bit of a glare:

There's a challenge going on over at Frosted Designs to use a large photo on a 12" x 12" scrapbook page, so I decided to enter this layout in the challenge, since it's one of my favorites! Be sure to check out the other entries HERE.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend! Here's to a better week ahead!!!
