Mum - Donna Salazar Designs

I've been having such fun with the Spring in Bloom papers that Donna sent me and have created a bright girly layout of my mum, how perfect is the Queen Bees paper for this photo!!  I loved this quick snapshot of her, I know it's not perfect but this photo just makes me happy!  It was taken at a family picnic up at the lake, on a pretty rough weekend for our family, but legendary as she is, she's positive and smiling... and that's just how she is.

A flower created with the Spellbinders Rose Creations die using Crafty Chronicle and some plain cardstock, with a cute tulle bow on the side...

The Dusty Corner Flourish #3 was painted with white paint and dabbed randomly with Mix'd Media Inx, sprayed with Smooch Spritz and then sealed with Crackle Accents...

Another flower created with the Spellbinders Rose Creations die...

Snippets of Crafty Chronicle were tucked in here and there...

and more Crafty Chronicle added in layers and gesso'd to create a place for the title and journaling...

Thanks for visiting, take care and...
