Day 5 of the Mothers and Daughters Creations First Annual Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll

Mother’s Day is a time for us to reflect back on the special women in our lives - mother, grandmother, daughter, mother-in-law, aunt, cousin, mentor, friend. Today’s special Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll challenge is being hosted by Melita on her blog. Join Melita in making a special scrap page to honor and remember a special woman in your life. Visit her blog for some wonderful ideas and a chance to win some blog candy that says traditions. Laurie and Mia have also posted pages on their blogs, so visit them for even more inspiration and more chances to win today’s blog candy!

Then, visit Tamara’s blog for our second challenge of the day. Old family pictures often have a vintage feel and what better way to highlight them than with vintage styled borders, embellishments, mats, and frames. Tamara takes you through the process of making some wonderful designs for your own scrap book and is offering some gorgeous “vintage” style blog candy as well. Need more ideas for vintage themed designs? Check out the samples for this challenge made by Cathy & Leah.

These are a couple of elements I created for a heritage layout. It's so easy to create elements for pages like this just by using more musted colors, inking & distrssing! I used a couple of flourishes I cut out from patterned paper that I then used Helmar 2-Step Crackle Medium on to give them a more "vintage" look. Then I added coordinating flowers & pearls to complete the look I wanted. The entire layout will be posted at a later date on the Mothers & Daughters Creatios Challenge Blog!

Thanks for looking & have a great day!!
