I chose these pics of Mcauley and I...my own little Mother's Day memento....You make me smile....and he does. I changed the photos to b/w and added the blue to my denim jacket. I had this fab 29th Street Market paper that I paired with some K&Co prints from the Tim Coffey stack.
Instead of my usual cricut flourishes I decided to use some pearl sprays and accent the layout with adhesive pearls to tie it together. The alphas are from Memory Makers. I purchased an inexpensive book called "Letters To My Mother"....I tore some of the pages out to add to my layout. I've used distress ink in tea dye on all the edges.
I'm still using up that lace doily...LOL....a little trim and another flower....boy I've really gotten lots of goodies out of one doily....and more to use! I've also added some metal brads tot he flower center. The paper flowers are layers of the K&Co paper along with some solid card stock. I've cut the flowers from the snowflake/flower cut on my Home accents cart....2 ea in 2 and 2 1/2 inches. I then pulled the petals from behind each layer to the front of the patterned paper.
I've been wanting to add a banner to a layout and this worked beautifully. I used Stand and Salute to make the banner....added some lace and pearls and then cut the title font from Storybook. There is a small MS doily punch border accented with pearls along the bottom of the pic. The marqee is also from Storybook.
