My Mother

This layout was submitted over at the Swirlydoos Round Robin Challenge. The theme was motherhood whether you used a pic of yourself, your mother, grandmother or any matter which speaks to you about motherhood. I chose a picture of my mother at age 5. I'm not even sure if she knows I have this picture of her, my grandmother gave it to me. But it's my most favorite picture of all.
Towards the right hand bottom corner, on the ATC..there is a scroll wrapped with ribbon with some hidden journaling. This journaling is dear to my heart and says the following:

You are the sunlight in my day, you are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon, you are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life, how not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song, you are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me, you are the eyes that help me see. 
You are the one who knows me best, when it's time to have fun and time to rest. 
You are the one who has helped me to dream, you hear my heart and you hear my screams. 
Afraid of life but looking for love, I'm blessed for God sent you from above. 
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul, you are the greatest friend I know. 
You are the words inside my song, you are my love, my life, my mom. 

The papers are from the swirlydoos kit called "Oh So Chic". They are the new Donna Salazar Boutanique Collection. The flowers are from prima and petaloo. The circle chippy is from dusty attic, painted with pearl acrylic paint. I also did some hand stitching and ink distressing.

Here is a closeup of the ATC I created.

Thank you so much for looking and any comments are greatly appeciated!
