My Greatest Blessings

It’s not very often that I’m photographed with all three of my children;
 as with most moms: we’re the picture-taker!
 Last year on Mother’s Day I made a special effort to get lots of photos of my family…
with me included; it was the one gift that I wanted from that day.
I paired up one of the photographs with the Hello Sunshine Collection by
PINK PAISLEE
www.pinkpaislee.com
I took not only one of my favorite photos, but one of my favorite sayings: 
“my greatest blessings call me mom” 
and made it large enough to make the statement that I wanted on the layout. 
I let the title tell the whole story…not much else was needed! 

Using my cutting machine and the Masana Script font, 
I die-cut a portion of the title from American Crafts’ black cardstock. I added adhesive
 to the backs of the die-cuts with the Xyron Sticker Maker. I wanted to highlight the word ‘blessings’
 so I used the chipboard letters from the Hello Sunshine Collection. You can use a ruler or a
 focal point on the paper (like the dots) to keep everything straight. 

In keeping with the black lettering, I also used hints of black in the border strips that
 I punched and the small mat that peeks out from behind the photo. I used the sun from the
 “Sunny Days” Cutting File to accent the page. Finally, I added a cluster of flowers from
the Hello Sunshine Ephemera pack and a few chipboard stickers here and there.
