Corrosive Challenge 173 - Mother's Day

Hello there!  Well, it seems like spring may have finally decided to join us here in Mass.  The daffodils are in bloom, and you can see all the trees just ready to be green again.  It has been a sad, scary, emotional, and hopeful couple weeks all rolled together.  While the bombing at the Marathon was absolutely horrific and tragic, the way the city and the world as a whole has come together, and the outpouring of love, comfort and support is just amazing to watch.  It is a good reminder that there is still so much GOOD in the world even in the face of evil.  I think we all breathed a collective sigh of relief when the suspect was finally in custody, and now we just have to let things take their course.  My thoughts are with all the people recovering and trying to move forward, as well as with the people in West, Texas. 

Since May is right around the corner, the challenge this week is to create a project for Mother's Day (or for a special lady).  We are very pleased to welcome a brand new sponsor for this one:
  
All That Scraps is a warm fuzzy place to indulge your passion for scrappin.  They have a lot of different products, and a TON of digi images to choose from, so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time for browsing!
They offered the DT one image of their choice, I went with the ADORABLE Mashi's Muffins Fan Digi Image.  Isn't she the cutest?  I've always loved Asian styled things, and I knew I already had things on hand in my stash to with her.
She is colored with Copics, with glossy accents added to her eyes, and I actually added white gel pen accents on top of the glossy accent, which came out pretty cool.  She is fussy cut and popped up with foam squares.

Sketch was The Sweet Stop # 206, I love this one.  Too late to enter as usual!

Papers:  Recollections "Drink Umbrellas", Stampin' Up Cardstock

Embellies:  Martha Stewart "Tropical Lantern Stickers", WOC Cherry Blossoms, Recollections flowers, Ribbon and pearls from stash.

That's about it!  Thanks so much for dropping by, and be sure to enter, you could win 3 digis from  All That Scraps for yourself!

Boston Strong!
