It is Thursday today and time for some Pink Elephant fun!  Today I bring ya a scrapbook layout all about me as a mom.  That is our theme this week.  In honor of all the moms out there!  Lets scrap about ourselves as moms, our moms or a mom that you think is great.  Check out all the details on The Pink Elephant Blog.

I really enjoyed creating this layout this week.  Of course I enjoy every layout, the process and the fun but, this layout was a little different.  This time I really tried to document my feelings as a mom.  The overpowering feeling of love and all things warm and fuzzy that comes with becoming a mom.  I also wanted the reader to know I am human and feel some bittersweet moments too, being a mom is not always sunshine and butterflies even though we want it to be  *smiles*  It is such a tremendous blessing and I am so grateful for the chance at the experience of being a mom.  Okay, I will get on with the pictures now.....

I used a sheet of butterfly paper from Paper Studio.  I do LOVE butterflies afterall, so I thought this had to be a part of this layout.  I also used some polka dot paper from MME.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I printed my thoughts on my printer on a piece of Kraft paper.  The flowers are all K&Co.  and the piece of Chipboard was painted by me and glimmer misted.  Oh and the beaded pin is by Making Memories..I added a few colored glass beads to it too.  
Here are a few close ups...

I Love to hear your thoughts, so let me know what ya think of my latest creation.  I am very pleased with the final result.  I am also so glad I documented this for my kids and for me too.  Don't forget to check out all the other creations on The Pink Elephant blog if you haven't already.

Have a very Happy day! Thanks for stopping by, JennK
