This LO is my entry for Scrapperie's 8-week November/December Monthly Challenge. Challenge # 1 is to make a LO about the SUPERHERO in your life.

Here is my LO:

Materials used: Basic Grey pp (Lucky), DCWV cardstock, buttons, flowers, glitter glue, Imagination Project coaster letters (super), Basic Grey letter, stickers, brads, vellum, stamp on transparency, metal photo corners, DMC thread, gold thread

Journaling reads: If there's one person whom I consider as my real-life SUPERHERO, it would be no other than my mother, ELNORA MANGAHIS OVEJERA, my SUPERNANAY. I owe her part of my existence, she who carried me for nine months in her womb, giving her bell's palsy, which she endured for many years.
She is my hero because all throughout my 37 years of existence, she never left my side. Up to this day, she's still a hands-on mom to me, doing things I should be doing, I myself being a mother. She is more of a mom to my kids - preparing their of every meal, taking care of some of their school needs from projects to costumes to uniforms.
She taught me many valuable life's lessons I never learned from school. Through her example, she taught me to be compassionate, to forgive and to love unconditionally. She also instilled in me the real essence of CHARITY and SELFLESSNESS.
I am sure that she is not only a SUPERHERO to me but to countless others - to my siblings, to TATAY, to my own kids, to her students, to her co-workers, to those to whom she offered her help and those whose lives she touched.
