April Papertrey Blog Hop



Used the Recipe Wrap to make a Mother's Day 'card' for my mom. As there are 6 pockets in this template it fitted perfectly with the 6 letters in the word 'Mother'. I found this poem on the internet.

M is for the Moments she wiped away my tears
O is for the Opportunity she gave me through the years
T is for her Thoughtfulness in everything she does
H reminds me of her Heart that's always filled with love
E is the Encouragement that's given out for free
R is for Reliable - she's always there for me.

I then made a card with each letter of the word and printed out the appropriate part of the poem. I placed one card in each pocket. I adhered a photo at the bottom of each card, so this Recipe Wrap is more like a mini album.
