My Mommy...with RRBF Mother Nature and Arcadia...

Hi everyone! This month over at the RRBF blog we have been celebrating our Moms, our Grandmothers, or that special someone who is like a mother figure to us. Without them where would we be? This Mother's Day I was feeling a bit youngest will be finishing up her first year of Junior High and my oldest will be graduating High School and is preparing to go away for college this year. I started to go through some old scrapbooks that I had done and even though I probably should have left the pages, there were some that to me just needed to be "redone". This one in particular really stood out to me as one of those layouts, not to mention that it was perfect for the theme we are celebrating. This was my daughter's Pre-School graduation. I asked her to tell me some things about myself that made me special to her. Her response made me smile and made me laugh a little. In her eyes I was special because: I am happy when she gives me hugs and kisses, I am really good at matching her clothes, I am always hugging and kissing her, I make the best carrot cake, I like to drink iced lattes, I always say "I love you" and just because I am the best Mommy!
 I wanted to keep this layout pretty minimal because as you can see the Mother Nature and Arcadia lines basically speak for themselves.
The paper I used had a big "scenic" print on it and I really didn't want to cover it up so I used my craft knife and cut the outline of the prints out and used it as a photo corner somewhat.

Also this month Fiskars was kind enough to provide us with some of their wonderful punches so I created a giant photo mat and used the border punch to make it stand out a bit more. A little bit of ink and a few embellishments finished off my layout.
