Beautiful Gift...

We had a very busy weekend! I got caught up on some house work and added a few new items to my spring and summer wardrobe. I finally had some time to scrap last night after the girls went to bed. This picture is of the first time I got to hold both of my girls. They are so big now that I can't hold them both together unless someone hands me one of them and I am sitting in a chair. I learned a lot of tricks along the way to be able to hold them both! :) I used beautiful Melissa Frances patterned papers, resin flowers, pearls and rub-ons on this layout. Other products are Prima chipboard alphabet, Making Memories sticker, Rusty Pickle buttons and Jenni Bowlin label sticker. 

I stitched and gathered the white ribbon as I went on the layout. I love that it looks imperfect. I let the edges of the ribbon hang off the page. I coated the buttons with Diamond Glaze and then sprinkled them with coarse glitter from Martha Stewart. I thought this quote was perfect for my twins - "A mother's love does not divide between her children...it only multiplies." Isn't that great?!

I have a busy week ahead. We're going to the local Mom's of Multiples consignment sale Thursday night  - we always score at this sale! And then Saturday night, I'm cropping at Archiver's with three of my friends. It's part of my prize I won for the "Share Your Story" contest. I'm really looking forward to the night with the girls. I need to plan out what I want to work on.

It's a beautiful day - enjoy it! :)
