MAMA & JYLIAN- THE SCRAPPIEST SKETCH #118 & ARTASTIC MAY CHALLENGE

i wanted to share this layout i finished inspired by THE SCRAPPIEST sketch #118 and also inspired by ARTASTIC May challenge- featuring the lovely painting "Mother and Sarah admiring the baby" by Mary Cassatt. here is my LO-
i think i covered all the diva demand- i used a single photo of me and my dear daughter, i've a lace doily behind the title word "mama", & i've used an orange patterned paper for my background. i've used my ARTFUL DELIGHT April kit here with some of my other stash. thanks again for stopping by. have a great day!
