My Mommy's Day - Let's Get Sketchy May week 4

Hi there

The 4th sketch of May is up at
LGS - week 4
I have been waiting for this sketch:
My Mommy's Day
I had these pictures from Mommy's Day 2013
My boys "delivered me" breakfast in bed  *wink
My son, was SO PROUD he made his own gift wrap
a hand drawn family portrait - so sweet! It wrapped a beautiful
Thumb print butterfly necklace,
made me a card,
some handmade flowers and picked my daffodils - hehe!

My poem reads:
"Kindergardeners have a special way
of growing bigger every day
but this little fingerprint so much bigger than a speck
will remind  you of this year when placed around your neck
Happy Mother's Day "

I chose this rub-on
"There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one."
[ guess I'm doing ok ]

I love how busy MME patterned paper is (plus its my FAV colour)
I love all things PINK!!
I used a little GESSO, in swirls with splatters of Mister Huey's mist
Fancy Pants filter paper doilies, a Silhouette cut file embellished with MME buttons
 some bling, my son wrote the date for me 
*note his 2's and 3's are still backwards (I love adding his personal touches) and a double bow in hemp twine, hug my photos.

I wanted to a subtle, soft background, to add /build up these photos but wanted them 
to pop off my page.
This layout is about ME, how proud I am feeling and sharing the love 
from MY Bestie - my boys spoil me
I LOVE being a MOMMY !!
Hands down.... BEST JOB EVER!!!

What a great sketch - hop on over and give it a try

Thank you for stopping by
