Mom, Mama, Mommy....

Today, I spent a few minutes browsing some of my favorite blogs for inspiration and came across a challenge on the Bo Bunny Blog that was just screaming out my name!
It is their Layout Friday Challenge and this time, the theme was ME! 

Here is the exacts of the challenge:

Create a 2 page layout about an ordinary, routine day in your life.
We want to see what one day in your life looks like.
Your layout should include photos and journaling/wording

Well, I still had a bit of my favorite line "Olivia" so I decided to play along.
The BIGGEST challenge is the 2 pager!
But...it actually came together quite nicely for me.

Since my day consists of 5 munchkins calling my name ALL THE TIME...
I appropriately titled this one 

"Mom, Mama, Mommy"

Unfortunately, my printer quit working on me, so I had to make do with just photos that I had on hand. 
They are not the best quality because they are from my phone.
However, they worked perfectly for this challenge!
My main photo is one of my kids since I start and end every day with them.  I also included a pic of my phone, sunglasses, and a Diet Dr. Pepper.  
these 3 things are ALWAYS with me.  
Well, usually it is a diet coke, but that pic was taken a few months ago when I was on a Diet DP kick. 
I also included a pick of my daughters' backpacks.  This represents the trek to and from school every day, homework, and the fact that they have piled them into the chair in my living room...which is a constant battle!  LOL  I also have a pic of my 9 year old son reading to me.  You can't see it very well, but he is in there.  He is reading the Harry Potter series...and this was the 2nd or 3rd book. He is now on the last of the series.   I don't have a pic of my husband on hand to include, but I do end every day with a kiss from him.  That is in my journaling even though there is not a pic.

Below are a couple of close-ups.  I used a dowel rod on the ends of the journaling paper to make it look like a scroll.  I really liked how this turned out.  I also used a mesh ribbon and spritzed it in order to create the cross hatch pattern.  I also broke out my handy dandy border punches for this one.  LOVE my punches!

I haven't scrapped in what seems like forever, and I think I am a little rusty!   It won't be long and I will be back in the groove!  LOL
Thanks for the inspiration Bo Bunny Team!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look today.  Have a fantabulous day!
