Saturday Morning Scraps...

Good morning everyone! Wanted to share a new project I just finished up...

This is a photo of my husband's mother. His cousin sent it to us a couple years ago and I'm just getting around to scrapping it. It's really the only nice shot of her in the whole bunch so I decided to give it the royal treatment! : )

The inspiration for this LO came from a couple of places. It is based on the November Sketch from OUAS...



...and the color palette I used I found while stalking The Color Room's Facebook page last night, lol. It's from Week 125.



Now for a closer look...

 I pieced together the bling flourishes at the top right from what was left of the large Prima one I'd cut up. I added loose gems from Queen & Co. to fill in and complete the swirl accents. I also dug into my flowers and pulled all the coordinating ones I could find for this LO. After I finished the page, my husband said that the flowers were perfect because they reflected his mom's love for flowers. The mini bingo card is the newest item on this page-it just arrived in a package from scrapbook.com earlier this week! : )





 The challenge for OUAS requires that we have some journaling on our LO somewhere, so I used a small envelope to tuck my thoughts into and hid it behind the photo. 

I used a combination of Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye pattern papers as well as Die Cuts With A View cardstock-Immortal Love Stack-on this LO. Everything you see here has been in my scrappy-stash at least 2 years, with the exception of the above mentioned mini-bingo card, & I am super excited about finally using these papers!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a scrap-tas-tic day!! : )
