We had a great time having friends over for Mother's Day this year. Our friends are like family to us, and I can't imagine spending the day with anyone else!
We have been spending Mother's Day together with them for several years now at the Sawtooth Winery Mother's Day Event, but this year we decided to have our own "food and wine event" at our house. And so glad we did!
I used the Scraptastic Club May 2015 "Janglin" main kit and add-on with a few photos from that day for my layout. I turned my photos black and white so they stand out and don't get lost in the many colors and patterns of the background.
These vibrant and happy papers worked perfectly for my photos because they help convey the fun time we had that day!
Happy Mother's Day
At Scraptastic, we were challenged to do a 2-page layout, which I normally don't do, but I really enjoyed it! It was like working on a great big canvas! While I was working on the 2 pages together, I tried to design them so that each page could stand alone individually as it's own layout, as well as a 2-page spread. You can see several of the other design team members' 2-page layouts on the featured Scraptastic blog post here.
The words "live" as well as the "&" symbol are part of the pink background paper. I used my exacto knife to cut around them and then added an additional small circle to create a more layered look.
Isn't that foil camera sticker awesome?!
Lots of cute embellies with gold accents in the kit, and those little rows of vellum triangles are exclusive to Scraptastic.
The white die-cut words/phrases that come in the kit each month are also an exclusive from Scraptastic. Love those! This one is from a previous month's kit. It worked perfectly for this page so I had to use it!
I hope you had a great Mother's Day as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
