Cherish the moment...CR84FN54#2 59

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, May 19, 2012 @ 8:55 PM |

Hello! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! Here with a second project for the CR84FN54 Color Challenge. There is still nearly a week left to play, so don't be afraid of the blue and green color combo! :) LOL
For this week's sample, I made a layout featuring photos of Scott and Connor that were taken underwater while on a diving excursion. I even journaled AND I managed NOT to use even a single flower of sorts!
I used a combination of paints, inks, sprays and molding paste all on top of a fun piece of paper from the Pink Paislee Mistables collection.
I took on The Second Floor Challenge and challenged myself NOT to use flowers (which nearly killed me by the way) and I focused on the circles which were inspired by the bubbles made by Scott and Connor underwater :) Those bad boys were created with molding paste, a stencil, ink and paint:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with current Creative Scrappers sketch challenge:
Did you happen to notice the journaling tag on the layout? I journaled on the label using the Vintage typewriter Circa 1930 that Scott surprised me with on Mother's Day :)
 Here are a few additional photos from Mother's Day:


Scott, Jerry and myself


Jerry and April


These are the yummy rose cupcakes that Jerry and April surprised me with:

and these are the beautiful flowers that Scott surprised me with at brunch:
