Once Upon A...Sketch Challenge!

With Mothers Day just around the corner it is no surprise there would have to be a challenge about mothers. I would like to thank OUAS for making me do this page, why? It has made me think about how far my mother and my relationship has come. My mother and my relationship has not always been a happy ride. Don't get me wrong she was always there for me and i never ever went without anything a day in my life but my mother is only 16 years older than me. Imagine raising a child when you are a child yourself! Yet she did it! You would have thought it would have made her lenient but in fact it made her harder on me i guess and i was raised in a strict environment which i hated back then but now when i look back it probably kept me out of a lot of trouble!! We clashed alot, we fought alot but now she is truly my best friend and i can confide in her about anything. I am happy we have reached this point in our lives. So for my page i wanted it to show how much i love and admire my mum, especially because she isn't an average mum. I did this by writing my mother a poem. I love to write poetry and do not care if it is the worlds greatest masterpiece it is just a piece of me on paper. I had so much fun creating this page! I sewed, i punched, i ripped, distressed and painted my Glimmermist and i did keep to the sketch but modified it a little by creating the solid piece in the sketch by ripping a piece in half  and the clock circle under the photo i actually put a large Prima flower. I also didn't want to use bunting so i put a cluster of flowers in the top left hand corner. Anyway here is the sketch i used...





So this is what i came up with...


This is the woman i call Mum


Just a little close up...




Thanks for looking and until next time keep scrapping!
