Big Big Big congrats goes to Karen Shady, Miranda Edney and Romy Veul your submissions are all wonderful.
 Today I want to share a card with you all for the wonderful challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

The challenge is:

Mother's Day
Here are the rules:

I used the cute "Little Darlings"Collection!!

Next up also gorgeous flowers by Manor House Creation.

On the backside off my layout I wrote something special for our son to see when is all grown up and has a family of his own (it's a little poem.)
Hope you all don't mind for not telling it.

I used the sketch in a creative way this time:

I rotated it LOL......
and this is my take on the AWESOME sketch.

This also was a one off my final projects for the Graphic 45 DT audition.
I so love this picture off my hubby and son.....
Did you see that I didn't paint or do anything with the chipboard pieces?? Sometimes I love it when they are just plain the way they are...

I hope you all like my take on the sketch.....tomorrow they will announce the final Design Team on the Graphic 45 blog ==> here <==

Oh I can't wait, have a wonderful rest off the week.
