Earthly Angels

Hola Everyone!

Today I am popping in to share my project for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  It's a Mother's Day challenge.  Create a project that uses the word "mother" in your native language.  Yes, I should have used "mama."  :/  My original title was going to be "Mothers are Earthly Angels in Disguise" but had to reduce it due to limited space.

I created a layout using pictures of my mom when she was younger.  The original pictures are teeny-tiny and one was torn, so I did my best to edit, correct, & resize the pictures for my layout.

Let's begin with some detail pictures:
See that tiny vial?  I added "wishes" that I want for her life, such as peace, health, & joy.

I used alphabet stamps & stickers to create the title.

Hidden journaling.

The word strips on the sides are some of her characteristics. 
(Supplies: cardstock, pattern paper- from my stash, ribbon- Celebrate It, embossing paste, flowers- Recollections, stencil- Prima, butterfly stamp- Recollections, Perfect Pearls in Sour Apple- Ranger, cork vial- Tim Holtz, charm- Charmalong, stickers- from my stash, alphabet stamp- Hampton Art, "Beauty" stamp- Unity Stamp Co., tag, typewriter)
