City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #54 ~ Mother May I?

Hi all!! This is Cheryl back with this week's theme of "Mother May I?" The answer is...YES, YOU MAY...create a fabulous project using the word Mom (Madre, Mother, Mommy, Mum, or other equivalent of the word)on it. Yep, that is all there is to our challenge this week. Here in the U.S., Mother's Day is coming up in a couple of weeks so this week we are celebrating mothers! As always, we can't wait to see what FANTABULOUS creations you all will come up with! We sure hope you will play along with us this week!!

Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Marie Therese from Noway!
I love her wonderful mixture of clean lines and shabby chicness, we are so fortunate to have her this week.

Here's a little about Marie in her own words:
Hello I', Maria Theresa, I live in Norway with my two sweet girls and husband. I have been scrapbooking for 6 years since around my older princess was born.
I have been making cards along side my scrapbooking but around two years ago before my second princess was born. I got more and more into cardmaking. Now I try to even out with a scrapbook page every now and then as I still love that too!
You find my blog here: http://mscrapping.blogspot.com
