Mom vs Mommy

I am so excited to share this layout. I have had it in my head for a very long time. I just didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with it. I had been in a major scrapbook slump. I haven't done a page since January and that was for a class for die cutting machines on 2 peas. Ironically, the class was by Nichol Magourik. Then she posted THIS I instantly fell in love with the colors, the clouds, the word bubbles and the light fun of the layout. It all came together in my head and I got to work. Then my back went out. I have had this sitting on my desk for about 2 weeks. I pushed through the pain this weekend to finish it and I am so happy with the end result! Even my children and my dd's friends understood what I was trying to get across with this layout. I think that makes it a huge success...at least in my book! :)
I am completely in love with my Silhouette SD. I created this layout with nothing but my Silhouette, cardstock, pp and a few Hero Arts stamps. It was so fun and so liberating not having to worry about colors and patterns with photos. It really just opened up a whole new world to me and I didn't have to struggle with a journaling box because the layout was my journaling.
If you don't own a Silhouette I encourage you to purchase one. I could use just this machine and paper forever. Just so much fun and the possibilities are endless. Thanks for stopping by.
I am off to do find some card challenges for this week! :)
