Lasting Memories Challenge - Getting to know you

It's time for Lasting Memories first challenge of the year! I had so much fun doing my introduction page for my first layout as part of the DESIGN TEAM!!!

I hope you will join us in the challenges and I reallllllllyyyy hope I can provide you with some inspiration along with the other amazzzzing design team members! :)

Here is my first challenge:
"Getting to know you"

First of all I feel like my title explains it all :) "I'm a mother above all else"
All patterned papers used are from Echo Park Country Drive, along with the flower stickers and title tag. I inked the white paper (recollections) with green and stitched around the layout with a green glitter gel pen.

I used Blossom twine from the twinery to tie my elements together and to add a little texture ;)

I added bling from Recollections to all the flower centers.

"mother" is from Me & My Big Ideas Alphachips chipboard stickers with glitter. And I added bling to the flowers printed on the tag as well.

I used a sketch from Pagemaps for this page.. This sketch is from March 2011:

I'm so excited to be a part of this design team! Please visit Lasting Memories blog and go check out the other teams projects for this week and join us in our first challenge of the year! You have until Saturday, January 14, to link up your challenge!
