Mother's Day LO

Well, it's not an actual Mother's Day LO, but it is my mother, and it is a LO! :-) Here's my mum, in a series of pictures, of her doing her favorite activity, sailing! She was an avid enthusiast, and came to it later in life when my dad was approaching retirement. This is for my own personal scrapbook, "All About Me" -- which has very few pages! Isn't it hard to scrap yourself??


Paper: K&Co Blue Awning and K&Co Sea Glass
Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge
JustRite Wood Stamper Damask kit
Spellbinders: Circle and Classic Scalloped circle
Fiskars Threading Water border punch
Foam dot adhesive
ATG tape and gun
Pebbles chalk
Cat's Eye Colorbox inks
Martha Stewart embossing powder blue
Font: French 111 BT (love that one, but must be cut shadowed at 1 or more!)


1. Using Graphically Speaking, cut 11" compass rose in brown, and 11" blackout compass rose in blue. Chalk all edges. Layer and glue. Arrange at top of layout, trim away excess.

2. Using French 111 BT font and SCAL, cut title and shadow. Ink. Adhere.

3. Mat one photo with blue paper. Trim 3 edges flush. Cut right edge with Threading Water punch. Arrange photos on Layout and adhere.

4. With Spellbinders, cut Scalloped circle in brown and circle in ivory. Chalk edges. Stamp with JustRite stamps, then emboss in blue. Use foam dot to adhere with dimension.
