A Mother's Love

Here is the next page for the in-laws scrapbook.  I haven't done much for scrapbooking or making cards this summer, just haven't either a) had time, or b) been in the mood for it!!  But I also know that time goes by quickly, and I want to have this scrapbook done by October!!  Sounds far away, but before I know it, October will be here and I don't want to be in a panic.  Anyway, here is the page: 

All supplies from my stash, something new I thought I'd try is the key and heart lock.  My thought was "you have the key to my heart", seeing as it's my MIL with her boys.  I found this poem called "A Mothers Love" online and printed it out on plain white paper and stamped the flowers all over just to give it some interest.  I used flowers I had in my stash and tried to do something creative with them.  The ivory ones at the bottom are actually 3 flowers adhered close together.  I never know how to embellish pages.  I don't like really busy pages so I try to keep the embellishments simple, but I find it hard to decide what to put on the page.  Anyway, I think this page turned out alright.  I didn't want to do too much cause the paper itself is very pretty.   I used my Big Shot from SU and a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background behind the pictures. 

Thanks for looking!!  :)
