Mothers Day

* Memory is the cabinet of imagination, the treasury of reason, the registry of conscience and the council-chamber of thought. ~
* Memories of Mom are on the Wings of the Angels who visit me daily.~

Mothers Day is less than a week away. Hope everyone gives their mom a day of relaxation or even a wonderful memory that she can look back on years from now and smile.

Below is a Photo Mailer I have made to add some special photos from those great times we shared and from the times when we were growing up that made her laugh out loud just remembering them. I hope you all have great memories to pass along to future generations.

I have also entered this into Mary's CARDZ TV "Mothers Day Color Challege"
Hope you enjoy. Would love to hear from each of you on this project. Thank you for stoping by.

I used CTMH White Daisy Cardstock (1385),  left over Wht. cardstock that was ink washed with CTMH Sky Blue  (z2294) & Twilight reinkers (z2260).  CTMH 4x6 Flip Flap Protective sheets (Z4114)
Acrylix Stamp Sets:
Bohemian Alphabet (E1019)
Sophia Stamps (B1379)
Picture Perfect (D1363)
Fill in the Blank ((D1465)

CTMH  Exclusive Inks:
Gypsy (Z2190)
Pear (Z2197)
Sky Blue (Z2194)
Wht CS cut at 4.75"x 8.50" 
Fold made at 1.75" on left side
Attached ink washed CS face up to the fold of wht. CS total measurements
4.75 x 6.75.   This is so the mailers will fit into a 5x7 envelope.

Cut a 4x6 piece from the ink washed CS.  I stamped the wht. side of the ink washed cardstock with the scallop stamp in purple & placed inside the Flip Flap.

One side shows white with the purple stamped image and where I colored in the sky blue with the marker.  The other side shows the ink washed side of the cardstock. The second flip flap I put a 4x6 piece of Amethyst CS. You can place 5 photos in this mailer or a combination of photos and journaling spots. This would make a nice gift to send mom in the mail or place by her nightstand on Mothers Day.
I wish each and every Mother a very happy and jouyous day. May your Blessings be many that are moments for memories to be cherished and preserved for a life time to come.

Very pretty project. I'm not familiar with some of the techniques. I'm going to have to look them up. You should make a video!
