A Mothers Love **Swirlydoos sketch challenge**

Happy Thursday everyone. This is a layout of my grandkids and my daughter in law. I used my Swirlydoos January kit, Retro Tapestry, for this layout. I used this months sketch for this layout and it was definitely a challenge for me. I am not used to three photos on one layout. It was really making me struggle with where to place it all. In the end I do like this layout.
I punched all around the outside edge of the main paper and added some chalk inks to the edges. I made the swirls with some liquid pearls that came in the kit. For the title boxes I just printed them out, inked them and used pop ups to add them to the layout.
I cut up some of the flowers in the kit to place with the photo mats, and I added some Petaloo flowers.
I used two different Smooch Spritz inks over the layout before I started putting it together. The birds are a transparency and the yellow trim has some little gems hanging from it.
Well I am off to make a flower vine for my next layout. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic day, tomorrow is TGIF J. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
