Once Upon A ...Sketch May Challenge

I just love the current Sketch Challenge over at Once Upon A ...Sketch this month. 

Here is my take on the sketch along the theme of MUM :) This gorgeous photo of Mia and I is an absolute fave. The love of a mother for her child is truly unconditional. Miss Mia turns 5 in a couple of weeks which is making me a little teary looking at this photo and knowing how quickly she has grown. 

For this layout I have used the fabulous C'est La Vie Collection from Melissa Frances and OH MY GOODNESS I am in LOVEEEEEEE with this collection! The Patterned Papers are simply breathtaking and the embellishments available are uber cute!

The Doilies and flowers have been sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays and so have the Prima Canvas Resist Pieces. Additional details were added using Distress Inks and Stains as well. 

A Mother's Love Chipboard title from A2Z Scraplets was of course simply perfect for this layout and I have just sprayed it with some Glimmer Mist and added some Distress Stickles. 

The lace in the background has had some Distress Inks used on the edges and then sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays. The Distress Inks wick out when water is added and that is how the gradual tone was created on the lace. The cute little banners are from the C`est La Vie Collection from Melissa Frances and I have just added some pearls and inked the edges. 

Around the flower cluster and underneath there is lots of lovely little details and textures. A Flourish with a Bling Pearl Flourish was cut up to suit the cluster and a Weathered Clock Die was cut out of Canvas and then Embossed using WOW Embossing Powders. 

Products Used (Click links to view the websites):
Gold Chloe Flourish from Flourish with a Bling
