Sometimes I still want to pick up the phone and call my Mother. It is hard to believe that she has been gone for two years. Mom, I think of you daily!
This layout was made mostly from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden 12×12 paper pack. I wanted a frame around the layout so I cut out the frame from a very busy page and laid it over a more neutral paper.
To make the layout more interesting, i cut out three of the flower images and used glossy accents to make them look like enamel embellishments.
I did not like the flowers that I made from the paper, so I resorted pulling out some Anna Griffin flowers. I might have gone overboard on the flowers, but heck, they are just so pretty!!!
To make the other flowers POP I used that awesome clear Wink of Zella pen. I love it, it is like stickles but with a brush!!! The ribbon is a handmade crinkled seam binding I made some time ago. I love making my own crinkled seam binding. I use either Sprinklers by October Afternoon or Glimmer Mists by Scattered Angels. I have even made them using easter egg dyes. To be honest, I don’t remember what I used on this ribbon!!!! I also have very tiny pearls on the frame. you cant really see them in the photo unless you click on the photo to make it larger. But I know they are there.
