Mother's Love...........

I loved the inspiration pic this month at Lets Get Shabby Challenge #28 and you had to use paint and flowers to. What do you think?



Here is my layout, this is my DH when he was just a new little bub in his mum's arms. Ssshhh.....I added the year in there, can you see it? I wonder if he would be happy with that.....lol, oh by the way he is quite a few years older then me ;)



I used a mixture of goodies on this LO, the papers are Graphic 45, Kaisercraft and Glitz, I did some spring cleaning of my scrap goodies and its amazing what you find! Odd pieces of paper that can be used for background/base and ones I still liked, I kept aside and this one was perfect for the challenge and went great with the G45 paper! Some Prima alphas - new fave, Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, muslin and Stuff 2 Scrap chippies. The heart chippie is a border I cut, inked with Distress Ink, some white acrylic paint, a good spritz of Glimmermist and my heat gun - love the finish. The Story Block tucked under my photo has been painted with Distress crackle paint - Picket Fence, oh and I painted the edge of my layout all the way around with some crackle paint to.





Some more close ups....





If you love the challenge like me you still have until tomorrow to get it done, so get scrapping! Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments!!!
