This is a picture of my mom that my sister just emailed me from her senior year of high school...isn't she GORGEOUS???!!!
Supplies: Scrapworks paper: Casuals-Oxford Thicket Bazzill Kraft cardstock Heidi Swapp Ghost Letters: clear, lowercase Misc. white cardstock Chatterbox ribbon from Orange pack Chatterbox cardstock: Olive Prima flowers: med and small Tim Holz distressing ink Leave memories stamps Lasting Impressions antique brads avery transparency font: Bambino and SP Purkage
Tips: I don't have a sewing machine (insert WORKING sewing machine) but have been inspired by so many layouts with the wavy, whimsical type of stitching so I used the rotary tool that comes with a sewing tool kit and inked it up and ran it along the cardstock at the bottom of the paper. Result: Faux stitching that probably took HALF the time of me doing it for real! :) I also used the orange ribbon and Chatterbox cardstock to cover up the seems of transparency.
Journaling reads: I am sure that I don't tell my mother enough just how much I truly do love her and how grateful I am that she brought me into this world. Everything that I have in my life is attributed to her since she gave me the opportunity to achieve or acquire it all. I am forever indebted to her.
