Crop Out Diabetes!!

Hi!! Okay, so hopefully this isn't my last post for a while, I felt like I had my mojo back tonight while I was making this scrap layout, even though I still have yet to receive anything that I have ordered!! Anyways, my goal was to complete all of the challenges that were in the COD (crop out diabetes), somehow I managed to complete them all!! yay!!! ha ha ha...this is the last challenge that I needed to complete for the Crop out Diabetes challenge blog hop. I know it's a bit late to be doing the challenges, but there is plenty of time to be donating to such a great cause!! Please go and check it out, and donate if you can!! This will be entered at Scrapality's blog. Her challenge was to create a monochromatic layout for someone with diabetes. My mother has diabetes, and this is a layout that is for her "grandma's brag book" scrapbook. Every now and then I mail off a page or two for her scrapbook (she lives in arizona, and I in canada), so it's a nice surprise for her whenever she gets these!! Anyways, I chose pink (and of course white as well) because the layout is going to feature my daughter, and of course it will have my mom as well...it is going to have photos from my mom's recent visit here over new years!



(I know the stamp is unreadable, it is "Happiness walks on busy feet" by stampology...adorable but unfortunately i chose the wrong embossing powder, sorry, plus a bad photo doesn't help I guess...i tried...!!)
Recipe: DCWV and recollections cardstock, bazzill flower pots in pink and white shimmer, prima large flowers (white one), misc brads and jewel, Create a Critter cartridge for hearts and zebra, stampology stamps "happiness walks on busy feet," Ranger magenta embossing powder, pink ribbon and pink flower lace. I'm not sure what kind of paper the background is, I can't really remember.
In retro spect I would have embossed with a different pink, as it is really hard to see the magenta on the background (not so bad in person, but in the photo it is terrible and it is such a cute stamp!!)
Anyways, I'm pretty happy with it, and once I get some photos on it from my mom's recent visit home it will look even better, and I know my mom will love it!! thanks for looking and have a great night!!
