Just Call Me Mom

Hello everyone!! How was your weekend?! Mine was busy and I am soooo glad it is over!! Lauren made it to all of her lessons, the garage sale was a success, the golf team lunch was a hit, my date with my husband was wonderful, the park got cleaned up and I survived our open house!! Whew... what a weekend!! But with a new week comes a new challenge at Practical Scrappers!! And this one is super easy because we all use it.... are you ready for it?!! This week we are challenging you to use patterned paper in your card/layout/ project!! Seriously, could there be an easier theme?!! We have some of our design team examples up today, and will show you new ones each day this week... so stop over today, and tomorrow, and the next day, and.... you get the idea!! There are some very creative projects over there so you will want to be sure to check them out!!

This is me with 3 of my babies on Mother's Day this year!! Aren't they just so sweet?! My layout was completed using the papers from the Paper Poppy Kit Co. May kit. I LOVE this kit!! The papers and embellies are so fun and easy to use!! You can pick up a kit of your own by clicking here!! The sketch I used is also from Paper Poppy! I used 6 different patterned papers on this LO. The butterflies are chipboard that I glued patterned paper to, sanded the edges, and then inked. I added a few rhinestones and the anteanna are made from twine. The papers at the top of the LO are actually the packaging from some Prima flowers I had used on another LO! See... I can recycle!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week!!
Barb :)
