Hi Everyone. With Mother's Day coming up in less than two weeks, I wanted to create and share a layout about being a mother to my boys. One of my goals this month is to create a series of layouts reflecting my connection to motherhood. This is what I scrapped for Jillibean Soup. AND.... It actually has a photo of me in it. *grin* Granted, I am hidden behind my three boys and a rather large pirate book, but I am still there!
"Mother to Boys"
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Jillibean Soup; alphas - Jillibean Soup Alphabeans; other - Jillibean Soup: pea pod parts, bean stalks (twine), kraft tag, banner stickers, soup labels, clear stamps, vellum bag; paper clip, OA sprinklers (token); tools - date stamp, machine stitching.
I found a colour combo that I quite like (and have used regularly!!!) and added a dash of pink to my page! Ahem.. yes I know that this layout features my BOYS, but I wanted to have a feminine touch in the mix.
I am also loving the new Pea Pod Parts (die cuts) that Jillibean Soup are creating now. No longer are we pulling apart tabbed sheets of pre-cut dies. The job has been completed for you and packaged. Not that it was hard to do before, but I love the smooth look of the new dies - especially around the edges. *grin*
My journaling has been semi hidden in a vellum bag. Obscured would be a better word but I love the see-through texture it creates, allowing snippets of the journaling to peek through.
"they climb on the furniture & there's mud on the walls.. gangnum style & shuffling moves on the dance floor.. I go camping & play back yard cricket.. we build forts & have sword fights.. I read books on pirates and how to make slime.. & have daily chats about Ninjago, Pokémon & StarWars.. I will find Lego underfoot & toy cars between the couch cushions.. and don't even get me started on their bedroom floor! I am a Mother to boys & I adore each & every moment."
These boys (and my girl!) are the constant joy in my life. I certainly wouldn't trade them in for anything. Even on those testing and most frustrating of days. *grin - I must remember this!!!!* And I can't wait to share these type of layouts with them when they are older. Thanks so much for visiting...x
