Mother's Day Inspiration

Hello, everyone! It's Rebecca hosting today's blog post. Mother's Day is right around the corner! Are you ready to shower your Mom with love? How I wish my Mom was still with me! She has been gone 9 and a half years and I remember her everyday. My Dad and her were married for 59 years. They raised 9 girls and 3 boys...I am the baby. She loved to garden and she loved flowers. The new collection, Secret Garden, is perfect to use for a framed gift for my sister, Juliet. She is 15 years older than I and has always been like a second mother to me. She is "Grandma" or rather, affectionately known as "Anknee" to my youngest son, Elijah. At age 13, he has just a few memories of my Mom.

                                                      "Blessed to call u Mom"

It is a very simple layout. I wanted the idea of pictures tucked inside a garden of flowers. 

  • I cut a 4 inch strip of the celery green color in the collection.
  • I used a green cardstock to add a decorative edge and layered it behind the celery green strip.
  • I die cut decorative circles and matted my photos and inked the edge of the rectangle mat.
  • I fussy cut flowers from a second sheet and overlaid them on the matching flowers.
  • I die cut the title and adhered it the the celery green strip.
  • I add premade flowers and flourish pearls

I will place this in a 12 x 12 frame and give it to my sister for Mother's Day. She will love it! If you have your Mom this year for Mother's Day, you, too are blessed!
