Happy 50th Birthday Momma

March 13th was my mom’s 50th birthday. But in true Pam fashion she was busy that day celebrating Ministers Wives. We celebrated her birthday this past Saturday along with my Mema’s birthday.

Fun Fact: My mema is 75, my mom is 50 and I am 25. Fun! But I broke the pattern. Oh well, I couldn’t imagine having a child of my own right now. Nope, not quite there yet.

I made my mom’s birthday present. I thought it turned out pretty cute. So I am going to share it with you.


First I cut a piece of white paper to fit my frame, and then cute the picture to fit in the middle of the paper


Use a paper punch to cut out different patterned shapes.


I laid them all out on the glass to make sure I didn’t have 2 of the same pattern next to each other.


I started mod podge them on in lines. I also considered having them put on randomly, but I like the way it looks in a nice orderly fashion

Add the picture to it. I didn’t mod podge it on, because I would like to be able to update the picture.


My original goad was to glitter the words on it, but when I glittered MOM, the glitter stuck to everything not just the glue, I spent a lot of time with a wet q-tip getting it off, and I didn’t get it all. I decided to put the words that describe my mom on paper and glue them on instead. Not exactly what I imagined, but it works

She liked it a lot.I think it turned out cute.
