Album Contest - Layout #4

This layout is titled "My Mom - My Shining Star". My mom has been an incredible influence in my life. She has been behind me every step of the way, encouraging me, cheering me on, and crying with me during the rough times, just like a mom should do. She grew up during some very difficult times and she is such a strong, independent person because of it. I admire her in way that she will never know and in ways that she cannot even imagine and this layout is a tribute to her. She truly is my "shining star". 

I used a Spray Pen on a Cricut cut White Daisy doily on both pages to create a lighter turquoise background with a bit of shimmer. The butterflies are covered with Liquid Glass to add dimension. The letters are stamped and painted with Pearl Paint and the exterior of the layout is hand stitched, alternating stitches every few inches for variety.
