Guest-Designer for ~Berry 71 Bleu~

Hi there!
Happy Mother`s Day!

I`m so happy to announce that I was invited to guest-design once again for Berry 71 Bleu.  I received two gorgeous handmade vintage tags created by Marivic Clifton and created two layouts using the tags.

This is my first layout which I dedicated to my mom. 
{655268} Sizzix Big Shot machine
{657840} Sizzix Movers & Shapers - Vintage Alarm Clock & Camera set
{657826} Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative strip - Washer Border

This layout is also an example of the challenge hosted by Amanda Aveiro at Berry 71 Bleu running this month. The challenge is to create a project using your favorite quote/poem/song about Mother`s. Here are some example, feel free to use them is you like! Check the challenge - HERE

  • “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” ~ Abraham Lincoln
  • Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.
  • “ A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, ‘where mother is’. “ ~ Keith Brooks
  • A mothers heart is a patch work of love.
