Boy Mom - A Stick it Down Challenge

I used another sketch from Stick it Down for today's post. Not gonna lie - their prize this month is quite enticing!

This is a photo from Mother's Day - my first as a Mommy of two boys!

My journaling talks about how I'm officially a boy mom now, and I must accept all of the things that come along with that blessing. I'm a pretty girly girl, so it will be an adjustment, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

This sketch was different than what I normally use - what with the big circle, but I love how it turned out. I've been enjoying seeing inspiration lately with using threads and textiles a lot on a page, so I tried to do that a bit here with the thread on the wood veneer pieces. I also used some stamping with gray ink as subtle embellishment to bring together the gray on the page.
