Sunday Sketch with Trina & Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there! Today my sketch is in memory of my Mom who I miss to pieces.

Here is a brand new sketch from Citrus Twist. This week we are working with two photos and lots of circles for embellishing, plus fun paper layers. Here it the sketch:

My twist on this week's sketch is a 12x12 conversion down to 6x8 for my Handbook album. I had to scrunch things down a bit and moved my journaling poem up to take the place of one of the 2 photos.

I loved the circles, stitched and otherwise, in this week's sketch and they are what really grabbed my attention. I did swap out the mist splatters for fussy cut hearts from the Rise & Shine paper that comes in this month's Main "Life Is . . . " May kit.

Here is my finished page:

I have been holding onto the little bird October Afternoon flair button, wanting to use it on a layout about my mom for over a year, so that one came from my stash. I also used a piece of old lace from my mom's sewing stash for one of the sketch elements plus some shell buttons from her old sewing chest.

Here are some close-ups:

Now it's your turn! Make a project inspired by this week's sketch, upload it to the Gallery by May 17th with the sketch date (May 8 or 5/8) in the title, and you will be eligible to win $5 to spend at the CTK Store-how awesome is that??

Wishing you all a fun, relaxing Mother's Day.
