Celebrating my loves.....

Good morning everyone.

My turn to share my latest creation from All About Scrapbooks - my fave online scrap store.
With Mothers Day coming this Sunday, I thought it was a perfect time to scrap a layout of my biggest loves and me!I love being a mum to these two amazing creatures.
I used a   few papers from Crate Paper's Hello Love range. 
I love the freshness and simplicity of this range.

I began with my white background and then added some soft watercolour to the background.
I added a strip of paper down the side - I absolutely love that hand drawn heart paper.
I then began layering a few of the tags I cut from one of their papers. 
 I love how companies make these papers, as I've explained before I cut them all out, and then begin tucking them behind my photo.

I decided to stick with just coral, red, black and white with a teeny splash of gold.
I painted a 2Crafty Chipboard border word in black, and added this to the  edge of the strip of paper.
Those little hearts scattered on the page are simply cut from the hand drawn heart paper.

I love the simple colour combo, and those little gold hearts from the range (adore these!) just give that simple lift to the layout.
To all the mums out there, have a lovely mothers day - I hope you get to enjoy some time with your precious babies, no matter how old they are!!
For anyone who feels a little sadness on this day, for whatever reason, big hugs. You are not alone.
I will be lighting a candle for my beautiful mum, and celebrating her amazing spirit.
See you soon.
