The Mother Lode

On this Presidents' Day, one of the great men that we honor is Abraham Lincoln, who once claimed, "All that I am, or hope to be, I owe my angel mother."  Thus, today's post not only honors Lincoln, but my own "angel mother":

Among the new items in the CHA Winter 2011 release are lovely silhouette rub-ons, one of which is featured on this layout along with papers and journaling cards from the "Be My Guest" line. When I first saw this silhouette, I felt a sense of recognition, and then I realized that I had seen this little girl before, in the visage of my one-year-old mother.   Uncanny, am I right?

This page also continues this month's focus on JBS for Ranger products.  To complement the soft pink and white on the page, I used a few of my favorites, including a Malted Milk felt dye ink pad (which I rubbed over the dotted cardstock and around the edges of the inner cardstock) and Chewing Gum dye ink (misted over the center piece of cardstock).  Even used subtly, these products bring so much to the page.
Pin It!


  1. The resemblance certainly is uncanny! I love the bolder colors in the Be Our Guest collection mixed with the baby blues and pinks here. Beautiful!

  2. Oh, this is beautiful!! :) I love the silhouette, and the buttons are gorgeous! They're my fave.

  3. Seriously looking for that ideal Mothers Day present that will display Mom how much you really like her Want to create sure you maintai.
