Heart 2 Heart - My Precious Mother Layout

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is "For the Girls". I chose to create a very special layout as a tribute to my precious mother. She means the world to me and I love this photograph of her from her youth. 
I purposely used a sepia based photograph because the original photo was black and white so it didn't detract at all from the original and I was also able to use many of the new Basic Fundamental products from Close To My Heart. 

There is journaling on the reverse side of the photo as I used a 4x4 Flip Flap. That message is shown below the layout. 

Join us at Heart 2 Heart this week and show us your interpretation of "For the Girls". Be sure to use some Close To My Heart products in your project. You have until the end of August to link up your creation.

A beautiful tribute page to your mom, Alyson. The sepia photo was a great choice! I love the pop of color the flowers bring to the design, as well as all the glitter and sequins!

Wow, what a fantastic layout...are you going to frame this and give to your mom? Really enjoy looking at pictures of my mom when she was younger, and Lisa had done a layout after her passing, of a photo taken around the time she was dating my dad...the layout and photo is beautiful.
