Happy Mother's Day and a little cropping

Hope you are having a lovely Mother's Day!
I received a beautiful bouquet of roses. I am so blessed.
Yesterday, being National Scrapbooking Day, I joined in with the crop at Big Picture Scrapbooking and played along with a few of their challenges.
the above layout is for the wood-grain challenge and thanks to Cynthia, who sent me the March Studio Calico kit, I had this fantastic wood-grain fabrip stuff along with the Cosmo Cricket background paper.
this layout was for the Outside the box challenge in which elements of your layout should extend beyond the edges of the paper. I hand painted these roses and used a vintage photo of my mother and her sisters (all mothers). There were 4 sisters and 2 are now gone - they are very much missed!

Have a wonderful day!
