Mother's Day Mini ~~ Layout Love Linky

So for Layout Love Linky this month
over at Ashli's blog,
I wanted to show some of the mini Sir Cuteness
and I made for his mama for Mother's Day.

Him and his mama had pictures taken last fall
by a friend of hers who is studying photography.
These pics are SO great!!!
And thought it might be nice to get them in a mini for her for
Mother's Day.

I used mainly Amy Tan and also Simple Stories Vintage Stories lines.
That little arrow in the corner Sir Cuteness wanted on there.
He punched it out with a punch that I got at a garage sale last
weekend.  (I seriously hit the scrapbook jackpot this weekend
at garage sales.  WOW!!!)

The way this mini came together was that I put the picture on one side
and then on the other a saying or rub-on and some artisicality.
Is that a word?
anyways..... =)

This was the song that his mama sang to him all the time when he was
a wee-babe.
I was so very happy when I saw this in the collection.

Sir Cuteness had so much say to what when in this book.
He balled up the thread and wanted to use it in the mini,
so I put a little bling in the middle and it looks like a beautiful
flower to me.  So pretty.

Some misting.....
Some fussing cutting.....
Some banners.....
Some popping.....
Yep, sure did.

This page I put on Instagram and it is one of my fav's.
This paper is an Authentique.

And I LOVE these bingo cards from Simple Stories.
All the bingo cards from Simple Stories.

Here is the same picture from above,
just a little different finish on the picture.
Love it.

A little Heidi Swapp masking love!
And a Prima key and some Studio Calico kraft hearts.

This is one of my fav pictures.
The way she is looking at him.

This is a rub-on that I love.
Such a beautiful and simplistic page.
Some times simple is powerful.

Oh this boy.
LOVE these Maggie Holmes fabric frames.
And this boy.
Oh this gorgeous boy!!!

Then this little beaut, Sir Cuteness wanted to include this little picture.
This is his first fish.
He wanted his mama to have this picture.
This is a paper from the Lucky Charm Collection from American Crafts,
And then the "grass" is a Heidi Swapp banner,
but instead of misting it,
Sir Cuteness wanted to paint it.
Instant grass!!

Here is a little note Sir Cuteness wanted me to write for him.
And then most of the other elements on this little journal tag
are rubons.
The "Love You" is a stamp.
So sweet.

And here is the grand finale!!
Sir Cuteness wanted lots of stars on this page.
And these stars are some more garage sale goodies from the weekend.
Yep it was a good garage sale weekend =)

And then I made a little card from the left over's.
I am not a card maker, but this was fun to do.
I helped Sir Cuteness write his name inside.
So sweet.

This mini was so fun, but especially having Sir Cuteness help.
It was indeed priceless.

I love being able to share art with him.
He is developing quite an eye for art and color.
He's four.
So great!

I hope y'all have a great day ~~
Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Crafty, Kind of Day ~~
