Mom

Hi everyone and welcome. It is a gorgeous sunny day here, it is -15 but hey its SUNNY..yippeeeeeeee J Ok so yesterday was my moms birthday and she was such a fun loving person and one of my best friends. I miss her a lot. So yesterday I made this layout in memory of her…as I had a glass of one of her favourite wines. I used various papers and cardstocks for this layout.
One my moms favourite flowers were moms and peanees ( not quite sure how to spell that), so I made these flowers for her. I think she would love them, I think they are gorgeous and will probably make lots of them in the future. I also made the leaves, they are pretty cool hey!  I distressed the bottom layers of the paper and used a tonne of Distress inks on the beige paper. I used a deep punch from MS and used some lighter inks on the edges. The two brown flowers are from Petaloo and the smaller ones are from Prima with the Distress ink and Distress stickles on them. I love the Prima Say it with Pearls and Lace that swirls across the page.
The Dusty Attic chippy by the photo was inked in white first then a touch of Merlot ink on the edges. ( no not my merlot that I was drinking ) I added some gems to the DA piece after it was done. The envelope…first I embossed on the designs then I added more Distress inks and some liquid pearls to it. Thanks to Ivana at Scrapthat for the envelope ideas.
The Butterfly I cut out and added some stickles and ZVA crystals to the center. The title letters were white so I stamped them then added some chalk inks to them with some ZVA crystals. Under the title is some masking that I did. I added some liquid pearls to the masked area.
In the top corner is a tag that I made. I added another of my flowers to it, some lace, tulle feathers, inks ribbon, gems and stick pin. I love the little tag I think it’s adorable. I might start making a few more tags for layouts in the future. A practice tag for a challenge this month at Swrilydoos.http://www.swirlydoos.com/news.php
So after it was a completed, I had a toast to my mom and let her know she is always in my thoughts. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

What a beautiful tribute to your mother. This week is the anniversary of my mom's death and I've ben in a bit of a funk even though it's now 23 years since she slipped behind the veil.
