Ok, if you read my earlier post you may have noticed the pictured changed. I managed to take a quick pic of the LO with the new photo of my mom and the kids. I've left my close-up pics as is because there wasn't enough time to re-do them. I'm giving it to my mom this evening in the shadow box frame I also made myself for the LO. Pics posted at bottom of post.
My mom's colour scheme in her lounge is black and pale pink, hence my colour choice. My mom also LOVES owls so when I saw this pp from My Minds Eye, I knew I had to use it.
I made this pink, grey and black bloom myself with some satin fabric. I just cut the fabric into various size rose petal shapes and then lightly burnt the edges so they would curl in and then just layered them largest to smallest.
