My Mom, My Friend

I saw the quote, "If I didn't have you as my Mom, I would choose you as my friend," on Pinterest one day and thought it was the perfect quote to use on a scrapbook page of my Mom & I that I was planning to scrap.

I made a couple paper roses using the Spiral Flower Die. The larger one uses both Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. I sponged the Tea Lace Paper Doily lightly with Perfect Plum ink so it blended with the other embellishments. I used only two stamps for this project...both are background stamps. Of course the Hardwood stamp inked in White Craft over the Basic Gray background, then the more subtle Canvas background over the printed quote and again on the Blackberry Bliss mat. Here's a closer look at the embellishments...

I layered Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon over Silver Satin Ribbon. The pretty pearl embellishments are something I've had in my stash for quite some time...glad I was finally able to use them. Here is the page inside the 8x8 shadowbox frame.
I gave this framed page to my Mom on Mother's Day. She loved it! I'm lucky to have her as not only my Mom, but my friend as well. (Even though she likes to tell people we are sisters...and she is the younger sister!)
