Mama, I love you!


Today is mothersday. For me it's not necessarily a day to buy huge presents for my mom, but a day to honor my mom, to thank her for all she is, all she does. 

I've made this layout to honor my mom and our relationship. The journaling says: Dear mom, I admire you, for what you do for dad, for caring for the people around you, for your energy that doesn't seem to have an end. I love you!



supplies all come from Studio Calico kits: patterned papers (Echo Park For the Record 2 - Just my type & Bouquet, American Crafts Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go - On the clock & Wind Down, Basic Grey exclusive for Studio Calico XSC-015, My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine " Together" Chevron Paper & Lavender "Reasons Why" Swatch Paper), thickers (American Crafts, Memo in Burlap), gold washi tape (Freckled Fawn), sequins (Studio Calico), bakers twine (orange by My Mind's Eye, yellow by Divine Twine), brads (My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing), stickers (Echo Park For the Record 2 - Alpha Stickers and My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine "Wonderful"  Tiny Words Stickers), and wood banners (My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine "Hello"  Decorative Buttons)

For the base of this page I was heavily inspired by the 'Three' layout from Geralyn Sy. I love love love how she used the Amy Tan paper with the orange sketched drops. I have to admit I was struggling to use this paper. On the one hand because I love it so much and didn't want to ruin it and on the other hand because it's quite a busy pattern. So I used it the way Geralyn did and I love how this page turned out.

Can't wait to hear what you think!

Have a great mothersday!

Love, Dee
