Vintage Scrapbook Pages of Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I would share some scrapbook pages of my beautiful mother. I was the fortunate recipient of a big box of old family photos (some very old) and I'm working on a heritage scrapbook to put them all in.

Needless to say, the style of the scrapbook is vintage and kept the color scheme neutral so as not to take away from the black and white photos. I left the journaling out of the photos to respect Mom's privacy.

These pages feature the Elements of Style stamp set, which I think works perfectly for scrapbook pages. The floral images were stamped with Basic Gray ink, then colored lightly with Crumb Cake ink and a blender pen.

Great pages Sandy- I first thought they were done with MDS, but they are traditional aren't they?
