You'll be in my Heart - Berry71bleu May Challenge!

Happy May Day!! This month is my turn to host the challenge over at Berry71bleu! I have centered my challenge around your favorite quote/poem/song about Moms. Here is my layout using my BEAUTIFUL Berry71bleu tag - I chose the song "You'll be in my Heart" from the Disney movie Tarzan.

Here are some quotes are songs for inspiration:

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.

“ A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, ‘where mother is’. “ ~ Keith Brooks

A mothers heart is a patch work of love.

 “ A mothers happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.” ~ Honore de Balzac

 “ What are Raphael’s Madonna’s but the shadow of a mothers love, fixed in permanent outline forever?” ~ Thomas Wentworth Higginson

 Or if you prefer songs:

 Coat of Many Colors – Dolly Parton

 Somebody’s Hero – Jamie O’Neal

 I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack

 Dear Mama – 2Pac

 A song for Mama – Boyz II Men

I also did a tutorial on my Dusty Attic chipboard piece:
