Everything Mom . . .

I used the current anniversary sketch MMSC52 at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge on this layout. I actually did 4 of these layouts, one for each of my siblings and one for me.
I used the Stampin' Up Scallop trim corner punch and border punch for the light pink background behind the poem. I then matted this onto another punched mat using Martha Stewart's floral lace pattern. Everything was then matted onto a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 piece of card stock. I then added the floral lace as a border on two sides. The photo mats are sized 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 and 4 1/2 x 6/12. I'm leaving them blank so they can choose their favorite photo of mom.

I needed something to fill the white space so I used on the scrolls from the Wedding cartridge. I actually cut the shadow out, but decided not to use it. The flowers are floral picks and I only used part of a pick for each page. The lace, ribbons and string of pearls are from my stash. Each tag has a flower and some of the ribbon or lace and string beads at the top.
The Poem is by Joanna Fuchs and I used CK Serenity for the font. Click here for the file.
