Good morning all!

Today I would like to share a layout I created for the May Once Upon A Sketch... challenge combined with Scrapping Outback May 12 Chipboard  Monochromatic colour challenge (details here), you have to follow the sketch below (I interpreted it a bit differently) and the layout has to be about Motherhood, it has to include journalling! All the details are on their blog here. I am a big fan of this challenge blog, the DT is just amazing and this is the first time that I give it a try! Here is my layout and close-ups:

The photo is very dear to me as it was taken by my adorable son on Mother's Day, not bad hey? I did crop it etc. but still! I feel so proud when I look at my 2 beautiful children, they are the most important things in my life! Most journalling is at the back of the layout.
I used a few different papers (Prima, cardboard, cardstock), and as usual I try to use a lot of textures (wire, cardboard, silky and tulle flowers, chipboard, distress stickles, rhinestones, pearls, stitching, stamping)
The chipboard flowers are Rachelle Minett Designs (available here) and I had a bit of fun with them, I gave them 2 coats of Picket Fence Distress Stain, then I added Rock Candy and Antique Linen Distress Stickles for a bit of roughness! And when all was dry I wrapped some wire around the stems!!!
That's it for me today, enjoy your Wednesday and thank you for coming by!
