Can you believe it’s almost Mother’s Day? If you’re still contemplating what to get the mom in your life then today’s steal, the Chatterbox Artsylicious albums and embellishments may be just what you are looking for!

Now you may remember that my mother is more along the practical side of things, yet I really wanted to do a mother’s day album, so I decided to put a very special twist on it. I decided to create an album for my oldest daughter for Mother’s Day, expressing to her the joys and hardships of motherhood. Even though she is only a mother-in-training at this point, I think it’s important for our children to know the feelings of motherhood and this album is sort of a journey of my feelings from the point of her birth to now. It’s something I can add pages to over the years and will finish up with a page of her as a new mother.

The papers and embellishments of the Artsylicious collections truly made this album.

While I was in mini album mode, I decided to get a jump start on another mini album for my father-in-law’s Father’s Day gift. (Eeek! I hope this doesn’t ruin the surprise, since he actually does peek at the blog!)

I decided to make an album featuring a photo and small sentiment from each of the kids, their spouses and grandkids. It’s a good thing I still have time to get this completed!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend! May the crafty vibes be with you. See you Monday!
