Hello Friends!! I realize it’s been quite a while since I posted. Not for lack of trying, trust me!! January and February have come and gone…seriously, where does the time go!? One of my “resolutions” was to blog more often, you can see how that is going. Hahahaha! I still have that goal and will try and tackle monthly goals instead, seems more reasonable that way instead of looking at the entire year, that can get a little overwhelming.
This past Thanksgiving, my mom captured these AMAZING pictures of my little Norah with her great-grandma, my grandma. I look at these pictures and my heart just melts! For those that do not know, my grandma will be 102 years young this coming April! Yes, 102! It is truly amazing and we are all so blessed! The love Norah has for my grandma is the true definition of unconditional love! I have been looking at these for a couple of months now and new I had to create a layout that was just as special as the love they share!
I came across this sketch from Got Sketch and the inspiration hit me!! The gray cardstock I had on hand was a perfect match to the MME Cut and Paste Collection I had on had already! I love it when I can turn to my stash and find the perfect color and pattern combination. As I had my layout ready to be secured down, something was missing. I remembered I had some prima flowers in, you guessed it, my stash! They were a plain blank canvas and needed something to give them that extra pop! What I absolutely love about these flowers is you can do just about anything to them. You can paint them, ink them, spray them, they are so versatile and can really help make your page extra special. I had a bottle of Tim Holtz Distress Mica spray handy and in the best color – brushed pewter! I really love the gray off this page and the pewter color fit right in! With the added bling in the center of each flower, I cannot be more happy with how the page came together.
Last but not least, you cannot have a great layout without the perfect font and title. One of my favorite, favorite, FAVORITE fonts is the Samantha Font. The glyphs included in this font are just beautiful!! You will want to use it in all your layouts! You can get your very own by following my link here!
What do you think? I hope my layout today has offered you a little motivation, inspiration, or just plain made you smile! Please feel free to share, comment, post, pin to your hearts content! I love hearing from you all!
