A friend of mine who hosts local cropping days scheduled at 12 hour crop on Saturday, so that was really my mother's day gift. I got three pages done in twelve hours, which is kind of a record for me. Like a fast record. One crop ago, I took the entire day (8 hours) to do one page. My friends think I am a little slow.
Four hours per page is like scrapbook sprinting, so I am proud.
It was a great day filled with friends, food, and embellishments, though not necessarily in that order. I decided to do this week's Sketchy Thursdays challenge.
Here is my interpretation:
Here is the original sketch:
Here are a few things from the page I wanted to highlight:
First, these flowers!! I cut them on my big shot using a Tim Holtz die that you can find here. This die is the best thing to happen to the world since ice cream sandwiches and vibrating baby chairs! They are a little wacky to hold down after you glue them, but I am in love. It is always fun to come up with the centers too. I hand cut a little circle of muslin, and put a few stitches in it so it would not lay perfectly flat. Then I cut the tiniest little flower out of some Maya Road Ribbon...got it free from scrapbook.com when I placed an order a while ago. A couple of glue dots and bada bing.
There you have it! Have a good one...personally, I think every day should be mother's day!
