1. Crop Photo to 4 X 41/2”
2. Cut 5” X 6 ½” piece of the Black Cardstock to mat photo on. Place photo to the left hand
side of mat.
3. Cut out a Clock shape from the Timeless Time Clocks paper and tuck under the black mat
the bottom left hand corner of the mat. Glue down on the 12X 12 Pink stripe background
Placing this toward the lower right side of the layout.
4. Cut a 1 ½ “ strip of the Black Damask paper and use scallop scissors to make fancy edge on
1 edge. I used the polka dot side up and used as a border along bottom of photo. Before
sticking it down, attach a strip of the white lace trim to the straight edge and then glue.
Accent with a line of the Donna’s gems to cover the merger between lace and paper.
5. Attach the Chipboard Frame on the right side of the photo and accent with Amy’s Gem in
Center. I also added the numbers from the Chipboard elements along top of photo.
6. To make the flags along top edge of layout-- I cut random strips of the papers, and also
Tags from the Labels paper. This is where your individual creativity comes into this page.
You can use whichever combination of the papers to create different levels of flags and
layer some to create dimension. After cutting and arranging to suit your taste, you can
distress the edges with the Black ink. These flags get positioned and using a little glue under
them, you can staple at the top each one when you like the placement. I did not glue them
down completely, as wanted dimension from the bending up of the bottoms.
7. Now you can embellish these flags in different ways- such as Brads, gems, and Chipboard.
8. My journaling is done with a zig marker. There is room on this page for as much journaling as you like. 

Thank you Colette!   Have a great Mother's Day Everyone!
