 I was planning on doing a layout about my mom this mother as it is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this is what claimed her life. I noticed that over at Once Upon A Sketch that their sketch this month was about a woman/girl in your life. I can't think of anyone who has influenced me more than my mom. At the same time I saw the gorgeous Mood Board over at Swirlydoos and fell in love with the beautiful pink dress and flowers so I thought I'd enter it in both!
 This is my beautiful mother. She was eighteen at the time and this is my favourite picture of her when she was younger. She was always so classy. I remember when we were little my mom and dad and friends would go out for Sunday walks and the women wore high heels! Always dressed immaculately and looking so elegant!
I used Maja Design's Sofiero collection for this layout. Seeing as this collection is no longer available I wanted to save it for something special. I can't think of a better layout to use it on. I wanted to show that it was the Sofiero collection so I die cut out a small square with the name on it. The lace is from Prima.
I traced a mask over the paper then cut out the pattern. I backed it with the gorgeous rose paper. I then used the same mask and used a different flower and went down the side with fibre paste. I love the texture that fibre paste gives you!
The title speaks for itself. American thickers Alphas.
I used some Liquid Peals and did some masking along the top. I also used some plain moulding paste and went along the top of the layout with a different mask.
My flower cluster. I made a lot of the flowers in this cluster, I tend to do this on pages that have great meaning for me. I want that little extra touch. The rest of the flowers are from Prima and the leaves from Dusty Attic.
A better shot of the Sofiero label.
This is the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch that I used as my template and
this is the gorgeous Mood Board from Swirlydoos kit club. Look at that gorgeous dress! I love pink. The heart, the dress and those gorgeous flowers in the jar were my inspiration for this! 
That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed! All the best! :)
