I am so blessed to be a Mom.  To have two very special sons.  My first layout that I am sharing today is of the special presents that I got for Christmas from my eldest son Robert.  I love to bake and he gave me this cute Gingerbread Baker with a gift card to Bath & Body, but then he gave me two of the most special Christmas ornaments...

I used LIFT22 from Soul Scrappers to start my layout -

My Layout -
I with the photo was clearer...You know I cried when I opened these special ornaments that my eldest son Robert gave me.  The first one reads -
"Mom, I wouldn't be who I am if it wasn't for you and your loving support."
and the next one was in memory of his Dad who passed away August 22.  Although we had been divorced for nearly 10 years, we had been married for 16 years and over the last 3 years had become the best of friends again.  This one reads -
"You may miss me but I'm spending Christmas with Jesus this year."
I am also going to enter this layout over at Word Art Wednesday for challenge #170 Anything Goes.
Here are a few close-ups -
Next I am going to share a card I created for Soul Scrappers challenge MM1 Movie Marathon Wizard of Oz.  I chose the quote "There's no place like home"... You also needed to use a white background, orange letters and buttons.
Lastly, what I am going to share I have not yet created a layout for but these are the special presents I received from my son Thomas for Valentine's Day.
The pictures really don't due them justice.  And of course, his other present I got yesterday when I went to parent teacher conference at the High School.  EVERY teacher he has gave me glowing reports.  He works hard.  He is so respectful.  He is a great kid.  I am such a proud Mom!
I am truly blessed by the two great sons David and I had that were truly miracles, gifts of God!
