A Mother's Love

Look at those rosy cheeks! This was me with my mother in our home in Beckenham in the 1960's. I love the details in this photo, the tea tray set with pot, jug, cups and saucers, even a small vase of flowers. Lovely to look back and remember the clothes and wall paper etc.

I was inspired to use these colours when I saw a layout by the talented Heather Jacob. I have used Kaisercraft Periwinkle collection - hint, shimmer and secret. Also from Kaisercraft I used a Charlotte's Dream rub on for the border, 'A Mother's Love' was another rub on from the sheet called 'Mother'. I made two crochet flowers adding buttons and thread.

The right side border is a spiral notebook punch, and more punches were used for the label shapes. I used a few blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts and a Tim Holtz book plate.  The chipboard flourish and chicken wire are both by Dusty Attic.

In the background I have used some picket fence distress stain and a Prima stamp with a white ink pad. A thick card tag was used for the title and a few gems were added to the flourish.

I had fun creating this page while away at Debden last month.

Thanks for looking.
