I am mom

We have a new challenge up at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we have a color combo to follow and an added twist as well, we want you to include the words "I am" into your title or your journaling.   And, as always, don't forget to include YOU in the photo.  Here is my layout to share.

When this challenge was first introduced to the team, without hesitation, this was my instant thought... "I am Mom."  I wear this title proudly and I love it

I kept it pretty simple for this one and I love how it turned out!  Very clean and crisp.  I only used two sheets of paper for the entire challenge, white cardstock and a sunburst paper by Chickaniddy Crafts.  The colors were perfect in the one sheet!  For added detail I cut out the inside of a doilie to use as a background frame and I added double stitching around the outer edges of the cardstock and the printed papers.  Here are a couple of close ups.

What do you think?  Are you inspired?  I sure hope so!  Here is the color combo to follow and be sure to check out Challenge YOUrself for more inspiration and to join in with us.  Link up by March 4 for your chance to win a $15 E-gift card from Peachy Cheap.

Aren't those colors yummy?  So many possibilities and a fun pick-me-up during the dog days of winter!  Go have some fun with it and I look forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
