Christine ** Swirlydoos**

Hi there and welcome to my blog. It is a gorgeous sunny day here is BC today, and everything is starting to grow outside now. I had a chance after work today to finish up this layout I have been working for a challenge at Swirlydoos. It is a different layout as it has hidden photos behind the main one. I used my Timepiece spotlight kit and the challenge is to honour our moms. All the photos are my mom, she was so full of life and quite the character, always the life of the party. I distressed all the bottom layers and added lots of goodies to this one.

The little knob on the front, when you lift it up it reveals the two photos under the main one, and as you can see she was a bit of a character my mom. The photos are not totally clear as I do not have many photos of her.

Below is a close up of the flowers and trinkets, you can see the knob in there as well.

The chippy frame and the key are from Dusty Attic, there is also a DA snowflake tucked in the top flower cluster. I added some gems to the title as well.

Well that is it for today. One of my kits arrived and I am working on a challenge at Dusty Attic, and will hopefully be posted tomorrow.  Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
