For my Sister...CR84FN27 57

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, May 7, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , , , ,

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who celebrate :) If you are celebrating, hopefully your hubby of children will do something special for you and treat you like a Princess! I am celebrating the day with my hubby, son, his girlfriend, my step-children and my sweet sister Tina :) Not sure what Scott has up his sleeve but I hope it's something fun! My Mother-in-law, Barbara lives in Louisiana and doesn't travel very often so we will have a phone visit and my dear Mom is watching over me from above :)

It's time for a new CR84FN Color Challenge. Many thanks to all who joined in the fun last week~there were so many pretty projects and thanks to all who stop by to not only look, but to leave such sweet and encouraging comments :) Perhaps you may have some time to yourself and if you are looking to color your world with some bright and cheerful colors, I invite you to come play with this week's CR84FN Color Challenge! The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Adam at embrace life photography.
If you visit me often, you may know that my sweet sister Tina and I are very close :) I have 10 siblings (all from the same Catholic parents :), Tina is #6 and I am #11 with 10 years between us. So today, I am celebrating her on Mother's Day as she is always there to take care of my family especially my 2, four legged fur babies :)
Bright pink is not a color I have a lot of patterned paper of so I created my own. I inked up the reverse polka dot image from Waltzingmouse Gingham & Co. with PTI Raspberry Fizz ink to create paper used for the polka dot scalloped edge and the wee tiny flowers from Waltzingmouse Asian Gardens then embossed using a Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder. I adhered a bit of silver glitter to a Tattered Angels butterfly then topped it off with a homemade rosette. All of this goodness is layered on top pretty patterned paper from Pink Paislee: The Parisian Anthology Collection
 Thanks for stopping by today :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:
