Motherly Love - MME sketch projects

Decided to particpate in the My Mind's Eye sketch challenge again this month and created a page with a self-timer photo we took on Mother's Day. There's a little Alphabet Soup, Fine and Dandy, Stella Rose, So Sophie and Meadowlark all mixed in there along with a few odds and ends from my stash.

I so love being this little sweetie's mom. She is so goofy/smart/lovely/creative/energetic/wonderful and I just don't think I'll ever love anything more. I am so proud to be her mom and along the way she is helping make me a better person too.

This page was so much fun to create! I took a little inspiration from some ruffle pillows I recently made and ruffled some fabric strips on the background, topped off with a spritz of mist. Also took a little inspiration in the form of the pinwheels from the monthly challenge at Polkadot Door Designs. Haven't made any since I was a kid but they are such a fun, summer element!

Also had a chance to play with the card sketch and put together this one using Alphabet Soup and Meadowlark, plus some of my vintage trim. The circle behind the title is cut out and I handstitched around it for a little extra dimension. Since my hubby has been working out of town, it gets a little lonely around here and I made this card with him in mind. It could probably double as a symphathy card as well.

And here are the sketches in case you want to play along too. Have a wonderful weekend!!
