The art of mothers ...

Everyone seems to be offering challenges involving mothers this month - I wonder why:).

ARTastic is no exception and has offered up an inspirational artwork called "Mother and Sarah admiring the baby" by Mary Cassat.


The added criteria for this months challenge is ...

 1. Single photo of a mother, grandma, child etc....holding a baby = 1pt

2. Lace somewhere on the page = 2pts

3. Something orange = 3pts

I have very few photographs of my own mother holding me and those I do have I have already scrapped.  I have even less photographs of my mother with her mother and none of her being held as a small baby or child.  The photo I have used is a rare one of my mother sitting next to my grandmother.  I have given this picture a copper colour hew and used a blue, cream and orange colour scheme for the layout with cream coloured lace accents.
