For Mom

I love it when an idea comes together!
I had this next project in my mind for a "Mother's Day" theme at 
 My Mom loves collages and anything to do with her grandkids (of course) so I had
envisioned placing small, round photos of each child in the centers of the Naturals Canvas Flowers.
I had the back chipboard page leftover from a water-fall album that I made recently,
so I used it as the base.  To give it a finished look, I covered both sides with the same
patterned paper from LYB's Just Because Collection.

Next, I cut a mat of heart paper and machine stitched around the edge.
Just placing the flowers onto the heart mat looked a little 'flat' so I decided to use
my square 1" dies and create a quilted look.  I machine stitched around the red squares.
Before adhering the other squares, I backed them with the same-size chipboard and then
mounted n place.  To add some texture, I simply stitched a large X across those squares.

 The Naturals Flowers come with a wooden button in the center; I removed them and
set them aside to stitch on later.  After punching each photo out I also backed it with the 
same size chipboard before adding to the flower centers (I used Glue Dots for this).
I secured the bottom of the Wooden Clothespin with some Quick Dry Glue before 
clipping it onto the side of the flower.

 For the "My Joy" banners, I cut apart one of the Naturals Burlap Banners and
then added the Blue Canvas Alphas.

 Using Fabri-Tac I hid the edges of the chipboard with Red Jute.  
The large bow at the top was made with some really cool wired-edge ribbon
by May Arts...I left just enough at the top for hanging.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
