Celebrating Mother's Day Blog Hop

At Just My Sketches the design team is showing our appreciation for everything mothers do by celebrating Mother's Day all week long in a blog hop. The hop officially kicks off at 9 am (NFLD time zone) on Sunday, May 9th and ends at midnight on Friday, May 14th. There are 18 stops along the way, some have blog candy up for grabs. In your travels don't forget to collect the words to complete the quote and take it back to Just My Sketches and the Blend to enter the major prize drawing worth $30! If you have just found the blog hop here, please go back to JMS to the start of the hop. If you have been hopping along you will have come from Janice's blog.


Here is my take on the layout sketch. These are my grandparents with my mother on her baptism day. I chose the song Baby Mine by Bette Midler to blend with the sketch. Each day of the hop I plan to add another layout featuring one of the great moms in my life.

Layout details:
Baby Carriage: Heritage Cricut cart cut at 3.5 inches
Word Baby: Heritage Cricut cart cut at 2.25 inches
Baby bonnet: Heritge Cricut cart cut at 3 inches
Frame for journaling: A Child's Year Cricut cart cut at 2.25 and 2.5 inches
Flower accents: Home Decor Cricut cart cut at 1.75, 1.5 and 1.25 inches
Scalloped circle: Doily cut on Easter Cricut cart cut at 5 inches
Embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Martha Stewart around the page border punch
Ink: CTMH Desert Sand
I am offering a prize of a $10 gift card to Joanns for a little crafty shopping. All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and a way to get in contact with you if you win.
Here are the words you need to collect from me for the grand prize drawing: I May
