My 3 Girls

This layout was inspired by a sketch over at Paper Bakery for NSD. You can find the sketch HERE. For my take on the Paper Bakery sketch, I chose to use one photo instead of three, and I added extra layers around both sides to stretch it out. Instead of horizontal elements in the upper right corner, I misted a diagonal pattern using sequins and Mister Huey mist in Navy and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Mustard.  I created this layout using the new Studio Calico Planetarium Scrapbook and Project Life Kit as well as the Atlantic sequins. Yum. Who does not love sequins? I mean seriously? What's not to love?  Seriously. Sequins? Yes please!

And now, onto the layout:

I just realized it is now official Sunday, May 12th (at least on the East Coast.) Here I thought it was barely 11pm, time flies when you are busy blogging I guess. Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mother's out there. I appreciate you. I appreciate your work and dedication to mothering. This includes all of you mom's to fur children as well. They are part of the family after all, and like my layout says, I have 3 girls, and not just one in my house. :-) 

My mom is almost 3,000 miles away but we will be talking tomorrow, but I am giving her a shout out anyways. 

Mom, thank you for teaching me daily by example how to be a good mother. I am so lucky to have you in my life, and my children are so very fortunate to have a grandmother that is truly the greatest woman in the entire world. Your devotion to family and friends, tireless effort in your community, belief in God, and ability to be patient and see the good in most any situation is truly inspiration. I love you! 

Here is my beautiful mother with three of the grandkids

As you can tell from this picture my two kids and nephew 
are kind of obsessed with my mom and her I-pad

I wish you all a very Happy Sunday and Happy Scrappin'
