Hi guys, it's Kayla again! You must be getting sick of me *wink* I'm here to show some layouts I created with CLEO. This was our January TSK kit.  There are still some of these kits available in the store. I was inspired to scrapbook these pages when I saw this photo on my desk of my Mum holding my niece and I knew I also had a gorgeous photo of my Mum holding my son Elijah in the tulips. I realised that mother's day is coming up so I have created these pages to frame for my Mum of her two grandchildren. Nothing beats a handmade gift I say!

Do you handmade gifts for mother's day?

This first page is the one of my Mum with niece Chloe. I loved this picture taken way back at my engagement party so it is an older picture but a very cute one. The floral embellishment on the bottom left of the photo was actually an oval piece from the ephemera pack. I really didn't like it on the blue oval so I cut out the floral and used it as an embellishment that way. I have used a mixture of alphabets. The gold stickers are from CLEO however the grey woodgrain thickers are from the January PLK kit  which is unfortunately sold out.

I used these cute little ice cream icons because I thought they just added a little bit of whimsical to the page. I combined that with some more gorgeous ephemera and a gold glittered heart and rhinestone from the January BPK kit ORLA. There are still some left of that kit in the store here.

A last little peek at this page. I have used some evergreen bough distress stain from Tim Holtz to add some splatters, a gold doily from ORLA and some other assorted bits and pieces including tissue paper from the kit wrapping!

Now I can share with you the second page I created. I can't decide which one is my favourite. I am bit biased with this one because it is the cutest picture of my Mum and my son and I tend to lean towards the more boyish colours. Also this page has that GORGEOUS gold pineapple that I was hoarding. It took a lot of courage to stick it down on the page and not hoard it forever!

I picked out of the ephemera and sticker sheet the more gender neutral/boyish tones. I love the glasses and the 'shine like a diamond'.  I also included from my own stash a flair and a wood veneer banner and lots of bits and pieces from ORLA.

I love how this little cluster turned out and as I mentioned I used that gorgeous pineapple. I just love it and pineapples are mine and Elijah's thing. I craved them during my pregnancy with him and have loved them ever since...before they became cool ;) 

Here's another little lucky last peek at my layout. I can't wait to frame these for my Mum and I hope she likes them.

Much love,
