Happy Mothers day!


Happy Mothers Day everyone! My kids all called me today to wish me a great day…and my dogs did too LOL! Today I have 2 layouts to share. Both using new Prima collections. My first layout is made using the sketch and theme at Once Upon aSketch. I have choosen a photo of me and my daughter, since the theme for this sketch is “Mum”. My journaling reads…..”when I count my blessings, I count you twice” Of course I feel this way about all my kiddys..human an dog hehe.


I have used Nature Garden collection and the photo is at the Grand Canyon, beautiful area. The leaves are stamped and then fussy cut from the papers.

I used some Prima canvas banners and added some fussy cut pieces to them. I then finished it off with some twine and liquid pearls.

Last close up is the flower clusters and I have added in some of the collection chippys.

My next layout is of my grand daughter and I have used the Prima Bap sketch. As you can see I have wandered a bit away from the sketch, BUT that is the whole idea of a sketch to me. It gets me started and I can follow it closely or can chose to go in my own direction once I get going…..which is what I did this time LOL! I am running a “circles” challenge at the Flying Unicorn this month so I will use this as inspiration.

I fussy cut all the circles and inked the edges. The rosettes are all made by hand and I added some of the collection chippys to the tops of them. My wish list is the TH Rosette die...one day I will get it LOL!

I used a mask and gesso to do the leaves on the top.

There is lots of fussy cutting on this layout and I have finished it all off with a Dusty Attic Sweet Pea vine, inks and liquid pearls.

Well that is it for today! Once again I wish everyone a Happy Moms Day!  All supplies used for these layouts are available at the Flying Unicorn store. 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
