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
