TGF Mother's Day Challenge

Today I have a creation to show you that I created for our Thursday 'In The Spotlight" Challenge with The Greeting Farm. Our challenge this week was to create a Mother's Day Creation. I knew if I used a picture of my Mom she would KILL me. So I decided to create a page of myself for my children. I used the jouraling stamp and wrote a small note to each of my children. I just tucked them in behind the matting of my photo.
I used one of the stamps and stamped it on some green paper and then cut each one out individually then aged around the edges with some Distressing ink in Vintage Photo. I tucked and adhered them behind my photo on the other side. I also used a stamp from the kit to create my arrow. All my paper except for the green is from Colorbok.


Make sure you go to The Greeting Farm Blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and leave them some love.
Rest of the supplies I used:
EKSucess border punch, Flower punch, adhesive pearls, journal punchout, felt embellishments from Fancy Pants.
Thanks for stopping by.
