Scrapping Mommy Memories

Hello loves! I am excited to share my first two-page layout of 2015: my family 's trip to Houston in honor of my God-sister's graduation from her Master's program a few years ago.  It was one of the last trips we took with my parents before my mom passed away, and I recently got the urge to start documenting our travels together.  

I chose my 11" x 14" Smash Book for this layout.  The biggest challenge was pulling the different colors together, so I used very plain background papers and focused on 3 key colors: pink to match my baby girl's headband and blue and green to compliment the graduate's dress.


 We had an amazing weekend celebrating my God-sister's accomplishment, from the ceremony to her wonderfully planned party.  Everyone, from the grown-ups to the kids laughed and danced their hearts out!  My parents have always enjoyed dancing and they look good doing it too!


I always like to add customized accents to my projects.  This time I played around with inking and stamping canvas butterfly shapes to top off the pages.


It was a great weekend that brought her loved ones together to wish her well.  Thanks for letting me share a bit of my memorable trip with you!

Design elements for each of the letters "TWINE" : Tickets, color White, Ink, Numbers and Envelope.

Supplies used: Patterned paper by Heidi Swap and Close to my Heart; Paper flowers and pom pom trim by Recollections, Stamp by Unity Stamp Co; Smash Book by K & Company.
