I was very excited to learn that I had made the Scrapmatts design team for the 2013 term. I have wanted to be on that team, since the very first time I got to work with some of their amazing products when I first started designing with Scraps Of Darkness. I am a super busy mom, wife, business owner & person, and limit my DT positions, so when the call came up, it was at a perfect time, because I had cleared my plate enough to take on one more :)
I just loved digging into my box of goodies and getting to work!! I used lots of Scrapmatts chipboard and combined it with this month's gorgeous Scraps Of Elegance Kit-A Dream Within A Dream to create a layout that kept to the criteria of "About Me". I chose to scrap my roll of mom, and titled it "Love Being Draven's Mom". Somehow when we become a mom, our identity tends to change from our name, to such and such's mom. Well, I went from being Renea, to being Draven's Mom, and it is one identity change that I embrace with all my heart, and I absolutely love, being Draven's Mom~ I have a wonderful relationship with my son, and although I may be a bit biased, I think he is turning into one of the most incredible and most beautiful souls I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He just has this amazing personality and intellect that makes my heart overflow with joy and love.
I created this layout using a sketch that I found on Pinterest by Anita Bounds. Sketches are a great way to get your mojo going and to give you a starting point when you are stuck, so thank you to all the amazing sketch artists out there who inspire us all. The top photo is one that my sis, Tammy took of us back a few months ago, and the smaller photo is one that my husband, David took of us when Draven was around 9 or 10 months old.
I just loved how this layout turned out, and will treasure it for years to come. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my gallery~ Renea
