My Mommy Scrapbook Layout Ideas
- Compare baby photos of mommy and baby. Use a picture of mommy when she was a baby. Try to get a picture of baby from around the same age as mommy was in her picture.
If baby is still little, you can stage a photo shoot to try and reproduce the background and to position baby the way mommy was in her photo.
Use those two photos as the main pictures for the page. You will also want to include a current picture of mommy. The current picture should be smaller and placed off to the side. This will help keep the main focus on the two baby pictures.
(For digital scrappers - use the current picture of mommy to create background paper for your layout.)
Journal about the resemblances between mother and child.
- Formal Layout - choose a photo of mommy where she is all dressed up. This could even be one of her wedding pictures. Make an elegant or frilly layout for this picture. List the facts about mommy in a formal way.
- Mommy & Baby Photo Shoot - take some unique poses of mommy and baby. Use the pictures from this photo shoot to make your scrapbook page. Make sure you add journaling to the page.
Poems About My Mommy
A Mothers Heart
I loved you from the very start, you stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun, you're a part of me little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew, my mind was filled with thoughts of you.
I'd daydream of the things wed share, like late night feedings and teddy bears. Like first steps and skinned knees, like bedtime stories and ABC's.
I thought of things you'd want to know, like how birds fly and flowers grow. I thought of lessons I'd need to share, like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face, I prayed your life be touched with grace. I thanked the angels from above, and promised you un-ending love.
Each night I lay you down to sleep, I gently kiss your head and cheek. i count your little fingers and toes, I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door, awed each day I love you more. Through misty eyes I dim the light, I whisper "I love you" every night.
I loved you from the very start, you stole my breath, embraced my heart. As mother and child our journeys just begun, my heart is yours - forever - my little one.

A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away...
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking...
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems...
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation...
A many splendour-ed miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
A Mother's Love

A Mother's Love is like an island
In life's ocean vast and wide,
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the restless, rising tide ...
A Mother's Love is like a fortress
And we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair ...
A Mother's Love's a sanctuary
Where our souls can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
Of life's fast and futile quest ...
A Mother's Love is like a tower
Rising far above the crowd,
And her smile is like the sunshine
Breaking through a threatening cloud ...
A Mother's Love is like a beacon
Burning bright with Faith and Prayer,
And through the changing scenes of life
We can find a Haven There ...
For A Mother's Love is fashioned
After God's enduring love,
It is endless and unfailing
Like the love of Him above ...
For God knew in His great wisdom
That He couldn't be Everywhere,
So He put His Little Children
In a Loving Mother's Care.
