Just the Three of Us

 Hello again!  Natasha here with a layout I made using the beautiful "For Mother" Collection by Pion Design.  The photo of myself and my children was taken about 3 years ago.
I used a sketch designed by my friend,  Mistra Hoolahan.  Visit her blog of inspirational sketches HERE.
 Before I met my husband, I was a single mom for almost 8 years.  But my children and I were happy because we had each other.  :o)
 I used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate two of the outside corners of my background paper.
 ... a mix of lace, flowers and chipboard hearts by The Dusty Attic.
 The Dusty Attic Heart Flourish was painted, inked and embossed with embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang.
 These gorgeous swirls were stamped using the Stenswirl stamp by Vilda Stamps and embossed with an opaque white embossing powder.  Then I fussy cut the swirls and adhered them to my layout.
 I love these chipboard letters.  They were painted white and inked with a Passionate Plum spray.

It's hard to see from the photo, but I stamped a flourish border peeking out from under the paper using another Vilda Stamp called Grungeswirl.  I embossed it with an opalescent embossing powder to add subtle texture.

 Thank you for visiting me today!  Have a beautiful day!
