I am my mother

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian Friends.



Time for another sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches:


It is also Friends With Flair time over at Unity.

This photo of  my mom and I was taken on Mother's Day.  I really like it and had to scrap it.  I used the new Sunshine Broadcast papers and foldies by Sassafras Lass, love these papers!  The bird is a Unity stamp another one of my favorite Unity stamps.  For this layout, the tag and card,  I have used my Glue Dots to adhere parts of the foldies, the twine and bells.


I would love if you played along and can't wait to see what you do.

I am playing along in the Jingle belles challenge - stars or stripes.  I have included some October Afternoon striped paper for the challenge.  I used the Unity Ledger background on this tag that I cut out with my Cricut (tags, bags, boxes and more).  The card is from Pretty Little Studio, the twine is from The Twinery, the sentiment is My Time Made Easy


I also have this card that was published in the June CARDS magazine and of course this cute stamp is also a Unity one.  The papers are also Sassafras papers, these ones are Indie Girl.

While your cards are great, it's this layout of you and your mom that drew me in! I love it! I can relate in a lot of ways, too. I've forever been told I look like my mom and I never really saw it. But, like you, I truly hope that I can emulate her and make her proud. I'd definitely like to be more like her.

Happy weekend!
