Scrap Challenge Day 6: Finish Mother's Day Card Layout

In Day 5 of our challenge to incorporate more of YOU into your own scrapbook, you had your children answer some questions about you as a mom. (Aren't the answers precious?!?)

Today, we're going to incorporate that into the second half of our Mother's Day Card layout we started on Day 3.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Cardstock and scrap of patterned paper you set aside from Day 3.
  • Corner rounder
  • Trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Questions from your children (mounted on color cardstock if you prefer)
  • 2 or 3 photos of your children/you, if you prefer (otherwise, you can mount your kids' answers instead)
  • Embellishments (flowers, ribbons, brads, tags, bling), if desired
  1. Using the large patterned piece leftover from the other half of the layout (@11"x9"), round all four corners with your corner rounder or scissors.
  2. Take the questions your children answered in Day 5. If they are small enough, adhere them in an artful way on top of the patterned paper.
  3. But, if they are too big (like mine), then find two or three photos of your kids and/or you, and arrange them on top of the patterned paper. If you use photos on top, simply make a pocket of the patterned paper by laying down a strip of adhesive on three sides, leaving the fourth open so that you can remove the best part of the layout--what your biggest fans have to say about you!
  4. That's it! I embellished with flowers in the corner, some ribbon, a bit of that accent paper leftover from the first layout, and some bling (gotta have bling!!), and voila!!
You now have a 2-page layout, all pretty and color-coordinated...and best of all, it features YOU! :)

Tomorrow, we're going to work with those pictures and memorabilia from the "Day in the Life of Mom"...
Thanks for joining me, as I scrap...
