Crate Paper Design Team : Being A Mum

By Jcchris
Hello everyone! I'm so thrilled that this week it's about Mothers. And with that theme in mind, I knew I have to scrap about me being a Mum. Being pregnant was never easy in my life. After 7 years of marriage, I finally got pregnant with my first daughter. She was indeed a miracle child. And now, I'm blessed with a second pregnancy. 
I absolutely love being a mother though there are times where I have to face a lot of challenges. With all those challenges, it actually makes me a stronger person. As a mum, scrapbooking is very therapeutic for me. The minute I dropped my little girl to school, I'll spend some 'me' time by playing pretty papers, scissors & glue. So thankful for this hobby! 
Let me share with you how I created my layout...
Crate Paper Design Team : Being A MumBefore I begin, I always select my photo first. This time round, it'll be a photo of my little girl and me. Next, I'll select my patterned paper(s). I wanted to only use a piece of patterned paper, therefore I cut the paper into triangle shape and attached them onto a cardstock by leaving the bottom part empty. Then, I positioned the photo somewhere in the middle. I slowly worked my way around the photo by layering some flowers, ephemeras & stickers. Once I'm happy with that, I finished the layout with a title "Love being your Mum". 
Here are some close-up shots: Crate Paper Design Team : Being A MumLayering has always been my favorite technique. It definitely gives a lot of depth to your layout! I also added a standout (detached the green checkered ribbon) among the die-cut flowers to add further interest to my layout.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums!
