All About The Moms!

Hi friends! I'm here with my layout for More Than Words May challenge! I know I know it's the very very very last day of the month lol! I was busy, see my mom visited from NY for two weeks and I needed to finish up a swap :)

Here's the beautiful inspo for this month -

Always spectacular! If you have't checked them out pleas click on their blog name or on my sidebar. Here is my layout -

I used papers I've been hoarding for WAY too long!!! What is it with us papercrafters and paper hoarding ;) This was My Mind's Eye Lost and Found. Delicious!

I used flowers from Petaloo as well as I Am Roses, some Lindys for the flowers and background splats, pretty Prima glassbeads in red and some pink thread. The chippie is from 2 Crafty. Let me just say they have some darn awesome chippies! I inked, misted, then embossed it. I really don't use red all that often paper wise, but this one made me happy.

I popped the pic of mom and I and the matting for some dimension, and I cut some banners, I stinking love banners! My texture paste background was done with a flower stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. I used my silhouette cameo to write the title and cut the banner for it. The pic was from a visit three years ago and we took mom to the beach. We love the beach if you haven't figured that out yet lol!

Thanks for coming by, have a grest rest of the week!

Beach Beauties

Hello scrappy pals! This is a layout I did using a sketch which I really don't do too often, but was lots of fun! I'm putting it in Dusty Attic and Lindy's challenges. Please give a visit to see all the gorgeous chippies they carry, amazing!

What a great mood board! Now while I didn't use this sketch I did use one of Emma's older sketches -

The chippies I used felt like feathery seaweed moving in the water to me -

We go to the beach almost once a week during the summer. The only stinky thing is it's 1 1/2 hours away because we live so far inland :( We spend several hours there though so we make the most of our day and I bring all my kids and granddaughters whenever possible!

Next up Lindy's color challenge :D

Perfect for a beachy feel. I used the creme brulee mist to mimic a sand like feel, and splats of the teal for splashing water. I combined silver shimmerz too to add depth to the background. The chippies got embossed with some gorgeous color which I layered over each other. I love Lindy's embossing powders! Give a click to go right to their pages.
