CAN WE TALK???????
Let me tell you how excited and honored I feel to be the first Guest Designer for 
Nana and  Migdalia for their new  monthly challenge blog
The blog looks so stinkin' cute and with these talented ladies, it's a sure HIT!

I was asked to create something with a  Mother's Day theme and since my Mom passed away, I chose to do a l/o  that is going in her special album. I used the wonderful Quick Quotes  Premier Page Kit collection of papers and embellishments  that I picked up at Scrapbook Expo. Not only do I love their themed papers, but their Chalking Ink is to die for. It covers like melted butter on toast! I added my own touches of pearls (Mom loved those) ,ribbon, glitter tape, a white doily  as well as inking up the flower petals to match the l/o. No l/o of mine is complete unless I add some sparkly Stickles glitter !! For the journaling tag, I used Spellbinders Labels 17. The photo of my Mom with her Pistachio ice-cream was matted with DCWV glitter paper.

 Thanks for stopping by the very FIRST  Monthly Challenge  with 2 CREATIVE CHICKS and hope you have a CREATIVE DAY!
