First my mother, forever my friend.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! 
So, on this cold winters day, I couldn't bare the idea of stepping out of my warm house, so I of course I decided to scrapbook! I have been sitting at this kitchen bench for hours, with a cup of coffee and a bench full of embellishments and paper. Anyway, today I decided to enter a sketch competition that's running at Scrap Africa! It runs until the 14th August, so head over to enter before time runs out!

I was inspired by this page to use pink and splatters of gold as I feel like they work nicely together. I loved making this page, and finally using this photo booth photo that I have of  my mum and I. I cherish my mum, and like my title says, first my mother, forever my friend. She has supported me unconditionally and has loved me perfectly. I adore her and I wanted to showcase a page for her of pure beauty, simplicity yet elegance as that's how I see my mother and our relationship. So here it is!

The Sketch:
 My take on the sketch:
