Scrap the Girls!

YAY! I finally managed to get my May Scrap the Girls entry finished yesterday! (Just in the nick of time...phew!) This month's criteria was to scrap a layout based on an important female in your life (of course, I scrapped my daughter) and to include at least 20 words of handwritten journalling.
Here is my layout...


I used My Minds Eye 'Alphabet Soup' pps & chipboard elements for this LO, a paper doiley (of course, LOL) which I coloured using 'Key Lime Pie' glimmermist; and American Crafts 'Rainboots' and 'Sunrise' Thickers. I love this pic of us that was taken on Mothers Day and thought it would make the perfect subject for this challenge as I wanted to record some of the details from the day...


Here you can see a yummy My Little Bit of Whimsy textured button tied with 'Honeydew' bakers twine; Green Tara mini flowers, Little Yellow Bicycle chipboard flower; MME owls and the fabric strip was stiffened and shaped using Ribbon Stiff. (If you haven't tried Ribbon Stiff yet, you should definitely give it a try! Stay tuned for more ideas, as I will be doing a feature for Handmade By Suzanne shortly!)
