Hello Friends! Ummm. Please ignore the above pic! LOL! Happy Friday! But I do have a Bella Blvd layout to share and it was inspired by my first ever, Mother's Day gift. My beautiful daughter.
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella Blvd: Molly, Family Forever; alpha - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: crochet hearts, blossoms, ciao chipboard, candid cards; embroidery thread; tools - typewriter, machine stitching.
My daughter was born one week before Mother's Day and she was indeed my very first Mother's Day gift. I wanted to document this simple fact (*ahem, 14 years later) even though I am well aware of when she celebrates her special day! *grin*
To create the hand stitched heart, I simply traced around the large heart-shape die cut from the Molly Paper Pieces in pencil, pierced even holes along the line and then used yellow embroidery floss. The hand stitching is then highlighted with fussy cut flowers from Sparkle & Shine.
I finished off my layout with three of the 2" squares found in the Molly Candid Cards pack. They each have a white back ground to soften the busy Peace patterned paper and have been placed in a visual triangle to help draw the eye across the page.
I hope all the Mothers "out there" have a gorgeous day on Sunday. Especially if you are surrounded by your loved ones! I can't wait to see what special plans my children have arranged for me this year! Thanks for visiting...x
