Happy Mothers Day!

I hope all the mothers out there have had a nice Mother's Day.  Here is the hand bag card I made for my Mum  - a bit different this year as she is getting quite a collection between mine and my SIL's lovely cards.
 Bazzill embossed card was used to make the hand bag which is embellished with Wild Orchid Flowers and liquid pearls along with pearl trim and Pearl cabochon also from Wild Orchids.   I used my absolutely favourite glue HELMAR 450 to adhere all the flowers, trim, cabochon and magnets to the project.
Below the inside contains a pocket for a voucher (ticket in my case). 
 I made an additional tag from vellum which I had printed and embossed with "Happy Mother's Day" then bordered with liquid pearls and attached along with the message tag with a chain (the ones that come on clothing).  I included a blank tag on the inside with the view that Mum may like to re-gift it one day and she will just need to put a new message on a tag.   The 'clasp' is helped along with magnets inserted on the back of the card and covered with another pearl cabochon (there is also another strip of pearl trim on the back.

Yesterday I attended the Embellish It Crop so it was lovely to catch up on fellow scrappers and meet some more new people.   I managed two cards and 3 layouts although the layouts were power scrapping ones and will not appear on my blog as I did not take any photos of them.   I have been completing an album of a 50th birthday two years ago and given it as this year's birthday present.  I scrapped 'The Amazing Race' which was the celebration we had at the time and did a double layout for each team piling as many photos onto a page as possible.  This is the only photo you will see - the title page,  but excuse the photo which was a quick pic taken outside on a chair but you will get an idea.  Usually I blutak them to the wall in my scrap room and take under the bright lights there.  The photo is also just a computer one printed on paper. Papers are from a Warehouse Stationery Heritage Pad which I used for most of the album.

Well that is all for today and thank you so much for visiting.

Have a good week.... Until next time.....
