Blog Roll Day 2 - Special Pages for Moms...

I grew up in a family with lots of mothers. I had my mom, my grandmothers and my great-grandmothers. We all lived near each other and usually celebrated Mother's Day with a large family get together. It wasn't until I began scrapbooking that I realized how much I had learned and benefited from having so many "mothers" in my life.

The hardest thing for me to do when papercrafting is to find the right words to add to my project. I have pictures and tons of paper to go with them, but what should I say? I thought it might be helpful to have a collection of Mother's Day ideas close at hand, so here is a link to a free special download we have added to our webstore. There are two pages of clippable quotes that you can use as title ideas, journaling prompts, or card sentiments - we hope you enjoy them!

And to continue with the crafting fun for day two of our blog roll, we also have a special scrapbooking challenge for today - a beautiful sketch brought to us by Robin Wade. Be sure to hop on over to Robin's blog to play along and upload your page to be entered into a drawing to win a Crafty Secrets mini album! Then bounce over to Laurie and Melita's blogs to see the pages they created to go with Robin's sketch - you won't want to miss them!!

Thanks for stopping in today and be sure to hop back in tomorrow - we have more two great new challenges for you along with more chances to win free stuff!!

Traditions Central!! Our Very First Blog Roll!

Wahoo! We are SO excited to share in our FIRST ever blog roll with you! We are so blessed to have a wonderfully talented design team, and we couldn't think of anything better to do for Mother's Day then to turn our spotlight on them and let them WOW you with their talent!

Here's how it's going to work: beginning today and continuing each day until May 10th one of our designers will host a challenge or special topic on their blog, and some of the other designers will be posting samples and their own thoughts about the challenge. We hope you will visit their blogs and play along - if you do there will be chances to win prizes each day!! You can check in here each day to find out who's hosting what...

The theme of the challenge is Mothers and Daughters Traditions and we will offer up a bouquet of fabulous projects - cards, scrapbook designs, gift and packaging ideas, altered projects, recipes, plus fun facts and quizzes. We're gonna have a lot of fun together

Our FIRST challenge will be hosted by Cathy Weider at her Seaside Rose Cottage. Cathy has GORGEOUS gardens and the flowers in her garden are composed of many layers of petals... hmm, layers... there it is, our first challenge! You need to create a card with a lot of layering!

Go to Cathy's blog to check out the details of the challenge, and then check out more samples with Giovana, Leah and Melissa. As promised, there's a super sweet prize in the works, so make sure to take time to play! All you need to do is leave a comment on Cathy's blog with a link to your picture - if you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, please use key word MDCBlogRoll as we're going to be creating one gallery for all our blogroll submissions!

In the spirit of Mothers and Daughters traditions, we wanted to share a little of our history and how the Mothers and Daughters scrapbooking store came to be! Here's what mom had to say about us:

Mothers and Daughters Creations started many years before the present day Scrapbooking Store you see on-line. Both of my grandmothers were very talented women. My paternal grandmother taught me to sew. Her sewing was amazing - not only did she create clothes for people, she also designed her own draperies and home decor items. I have a tendancy to lean toward the home decor items, although have been known to create a shirt or pair of pajamas on occasion. My maternal grandmother taught me to crochet. She spent hours in the winter months teaching me the intracies of creating even stitches of just the right tightness. All this hard work paid off a few years ago when I crocheted my granddaughters christening dress. My own mother is also a wonderful seamstress as well as an avid crafter and beautiful painter.

In years past, my daughter (Tamara), my mother (Louise) and myself (Linda) have participated in many joint ventures with a variety of crafting venues. There are many happy memories of the three of us working together to create items to do a special craft show or display for a local store.

More recently Tamara got involved with scrapbooking through Stampin' Up and a local scrapbook store. Her special talent for color combinations and design made her a very popular teacher and kit designer in the local market. After the birth of her second child and making a move to the country, it became more difficult to keep up with the local (now 40 miles away) store, and Tamara wanted to try to earn income at home to stay home with her children . . . so came the beginnings of the idea for Mothers and Daughters Creations.

We opened MDC for business in November of 2007. We started with a couple of kits and a few hand selected products. We have selected products based on our feel for the product rather than the popularity - we have a very unique selection which we are happy to present to you in our store. This weekend we'll be running some special sales in honor of National Scrapbooking Day, so we hope you'll take a little time to shop as well as enjoying the challenges on our blog roll. We want to thank all of you for stopping in and we are so excited to see your creations! Let the first annual MDC Blog Roll begin!!
