Show Us Your Stuff May challenge

For May the challenge at Show Us Your Stuff, is a sketch challenge, using this sketch:
It'a a nice versatile sketch, which I am sure you will have fun with.
As May is the month in which we celebrate mothers, I chose to scrap a photo of my sister and her son, taken on Mothers Day last year. I live away from my family, but last year went to visit them all, and it was the first Mothers Day, I had spent with family and my own mother in more than 30 years. It was quite special. 
For my layout, I chose to use a stencil and some silver paste to create some texture in the background. I then added some decorative paper trim and patterned paper, plus varying embellishments. My handmade items include a Charms Creations mini heavenly heart, and a handmade heart from a scrap swap many years ago with friends. 
Hope you feel inspired to have a go at the challenge. 
Happy Scrapping xxx

  2. Love that photo. The touches of green look great against the red chevron pp.
