http://www.diecutsrusdesignteam.blogspot.com had an awesome challenge to combine a colour from my minds eye new line, and white.. I chose pink and white.. what better colour to choose to do a layout of my new angel and I. I used so many different fun things on this layout. First I cut my bazzill bling into 6×6 squares, both of them 2 shades of pink(sorry I dont remember the name of the colours), then I did the same with my gorgeous patterned paper that was dying to get used for months. I made a patchwork with the squares for my base, and used my martha stewart scalloped edge punch on the patterned paper.! Then I used 2 pictures of Abigail and I. I accented with gems, to add a bit of bling. In the center I placed 2 of my thrift store find silk flowers, with an accenting brad, and hand drew some stickle flourishes. Then I had to figure out what to do for a title. I was inspired by what my mother says to me all the time “Before I was your mom…” and then she finishes the sentence. So, I cut my title with Sure Cuts A Lot out of white.. for the journalling I took 3 paint chips in various shades of pink, edged them with the same martha stewart edge punch, and layered them. My journalling says ” I slept 8 hours a night, I got to shower every morning, I wasn’t complete”… all things applicable to life before I was Abby’s mom! Ithen tied some polkadot pretty in pink ribbon around the bottom.  I hope you like my layout as much as I do! I had a blast making it. Please feel free to comment!
