Spring/Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Spring/Mother's Day Blog Hop. If you came from kelsterjeanwww.kelsterjean.blogspot.com 
you are headed in the right direction. If you didnt come from there, you can start at the beginning with Amanda www.lovejoypaper.com.


This LO that I made is of my son & me. I LOVE these pictures. So loving & innocent as a baby. Now as he is a teenager, I can barely get a hug from him. I started out with this decorative paper from LYB. I thought the paper matched his jeans so well. The flowers were just outlined in white so I started coloring them in with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers. That alone took me a couple hrs. I was almost thinking this is looking too girly for a LO with my son. Maybe I will keep this LO for myself. I tried to put a little more blue in it & make it look a little less girly. I used gesso & a Prima brick wall mask. I thought it went well with the flowers.The letters are white foam Thickers that I inked & applied Perfect Pearls to. The embellishments that are layered are from My Minds Eye Miss Caroline collection. I also added some LYB Jewel Stickers to the flowers.

  1. Your LO is so pretty! It's nice to go back and scrap the older photos with all their memories. I did an album for our DIL when they got married. She appreciated having the photos of his childhood.
    I love taking a piece of paper and altering it so it looks completely different. It gives a paper crafter so many more options!
