Although a mother is special in oh so many ways, there are other people to be celebrated this Mother’s Day. Think of grandma, aunt, sister, friend. Let them know how special you know they are.
Deb Jones did just that last Christmas. With a simple scrap page, she showed her sisters exactly how she felt about them.

For Christmas this past year I made tiles for both of my sisters, using the 12×12 scrapbook page as my palette. My sisters are both very special to me; one is a year older, the other five years younger. We are very close, but rarely see each other as we live in different parts of the country.
I wanted to capture our lives together, so I made two different tiles, one as babies, the other as adults. We’re very different from each other, but love to be together. So I chose the saying “Sisters are different flowers from the same garden” for the baby pictures. I used the saying “Sisters are forever friends” for our adult pictures because it said in one sentence all of the sentiment I feel for my sisters.
The tiles turned out beautiful; decoupaging the scrapbook page onto tiles was very fast and easy. I bought small gold tripod stands to sit the tiles on. My sisters loved them.
