Berry71Bleu - May Challenge

Hi Girls, sorry for the absence, but I have had such a lot going on and haven't been able to find much time for the computer.  I am hoping to catch up with you all over the weekend and can't wait to see what you have all been creating!! :))

The new new challenge for this month is up at Berry71Bleu, and is bought to you by the lovely Amanda Aveiro.  Here are the details:

In honor of Mother’s Day I am centering the challenge around your favorite quote/poem/song about Mother’s. Here are some examples, feel free to use them if you like!

*  A mother's love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking ~ Helen Rice
*  There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one ~ Jill Churchill
*  A mother holds her children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever
*  All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother ~ Abraham Lincoln
*  Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.
*  A mothers heart is a patch work of love.
*  A mothers happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories. ~ Honore de Balzac
