A wonderful Mother's day was had here in my neck of the woods! I got breakfast in bed, a chance to go for a run, an hour (or so) to listen to my audiobook while I stretched and did some yoga and had a yummy yoghurt parfait with strawberries and dark chocolate chips eaten on the back porch swing in the sunshine. Hubby and the kids hung out in the backyard and took care of some gardening with the grandparents.
I hope those of you who celebrated Mother's Day this past weekend had a special day as well!
On the creative front, another challenge is up and running over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges: Challenge #76
Challenge: Use a rose on your creation
Twist: Use a sweetheart theme (Make a creation with your Sweetheart in mind: Spouse, adorable, child/grandchild, etc)
Here is what my grey matter concocted:
|patterned paper: K&Company; date card: 7 Gypsies; plastic tags: Making Memories; rose dies: Sizzix; letter dies: Quickutz; chipboard letters: unknown|
This layout was based on a sketch from Page Maps: June 2013
I also based it on the colour scheme over at Color Me Scrappy:
When I took this picture of C3 and her Nonna a couple weeks ago I was taken aback by how beautiful my Mama (in-law) looked (moreso than usual of course). Love it! I couldn't wait to scrapbook this photo and this challenge was just right for it (since the "rose" part of this challenge also comes in Nonna's name). My girls are so very blessed to have such AMAZING grandparents (on both sides!!) who would do anything for them and who love my girls to the moon and back (a hundred times over!).
I hope I have inspired you to take on this challenge! I look forward to seeing your creations!
I'd like to submit this to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: M (for mother)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Spring Flowers
Scrap it Girl: Mothers or Mother Nature
Colour Me Scrappy: DT Challenge (N=Nonna, E=inked Edges, W=washi tape)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
