More Mother's Day Ideas

I was looking through my photos for a certain gift I'm making (shhh) and came across one of my favorite pictures of my girls when they were younger. I absolutely love this photo of them and immediately thought of Basic Grey Cappella when I saw the colors in it! I made this frame for myself (Happy Mother's Day to me!), but it could easily be given to my mom for Mother's Day.

I can't remember exactly when this picture was taken, but Jasmine was about 5 or 6 and Ericka was about 18 months to 2 years old. They had Jasmine kneel in the picture to be about the same size as her little sister. I love everything about this picture and wanted to "frame" it as a keepsake of my babies!

My Girls - by Me! (Floren)

I used Basic Grey Cappella - Puccini, Mezzo, Timpani, Bellini, Bravo!, Element Stickers and Prima Flowers - some from my stash and Winter Roses - Marble. Oh yeah, let's not forget the Prima bling from my stash! The frame is a Kaisercraft Large Canvas. I painted the sides dark brown to match my papers.

Here is a close-up of all of the flowers! I used stickers from the Cappella Element Stickers as some of the flower centers and added some more bling (of course!) to the center of the stickers.

Here is a close-up of the flowers and leaves I fussy-cut from the Bravo! paper. I layered them together and attached with foam squares for dimension. I added some sticker flowers from the Element Stickers and bling to the centers of the flowers.

I love how it turned out! Thanks for looking!

Not to change the subject, but did you know that Bo Bunny has come out with 4 new spring releases? Stay-tuned and we'll give you some sneak peeks of them (maybe tomorrow!)

Happy Crafting!
