i am proud of my mom

and 3 years later, i can finally show her off. she is the proud graduate of evergreen state college in olympia. even though she already had a job, her kids were grown, she wanted the self satisfaction of graduating college. she went to night classes so she could continue working during the day. i hope that someday my children will be half as proud of me as i am of my mother.
back to the page, i know, once again, i crammed TONS of stuff onto paper. this is a 12x12 page. i made the background paper (well, started with a 12x12 of whisper white then went just crazy with my polka dots and petals & polka dots and paisley sets, both from the spring mini catalog.) since i didn't get the right "vibe" from any paper that i had on hand. ok, i used so many colors: mellow moss & certainly celery; ballet blue & bashful blue; elegand eggplant & lavender lace; pixie pink & pretty in pink; pumpkin pie & summer sun; basic black. on all the underlayers for the pictures, i used the dotted background stamp from the polka dots and paisely set. the "celebrate" and "happiness*joy*bliss*laugh" stamps are $1 stamps from michaels. i used more flowers from that bread bag full of flowers that i got at the goodwill for cheap. i also used my SU flower punch, my cuttlebug (arrows & lines of arrows, some flowers), stapler, sparkle gel pen, silver square brads. i hope mom likes it!
