Happy Mother's Day, A Layout Using One of Those Wallets, and a Giveaway

Today is Mother's Day which made me think about becoming a mother.  So when I saw Shimelle's small photo challenge, I thought about those photo packages of baby pictures including a thousand wallets.  So I pulled one out and did this fun layout using last week's Studio Calico card sketch.

I started with a piece of Heidi Swapp color resist paper and used the new Navy and Seafoam Mister Huey's to create an ombre effect for the base.  Then I layered bits of pieces in the bottom to provide a foundation for the small photo.  Adding the Maggie Holmes fabric polaroid frame really helped draw your eye to the photo.

But my favorite part is the gold mesh streamer.  I glued sequins on top to add a little something extra and really loved the effect.  

I have a small giveaway to celebrate the day - just be a follower and leave me a comment explaining why Mother's Day is special to you.  I'll leave the comments open til midnight on May 19.  The winner will get the stamp from the Neverland Main Kit.
