Challenge YOUrself April Challenge "INSPIRE"

Hello my Scrappy Friends!!  Happy April!  I hope Spring had finally Sprung in your neck of the woods!  I know I am looking forward to warmer and sunnier weather!

It is time for this month's challenge over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  This month's theme is all about the word "INSPIRE" ( and a photo of you too of course!)  What inspires you? Or maybe, who do you, or how have you inspired someone?  

Check out all of the great "INSPIRATION" layouts from our AMAZING Design Team, and get all the details and prize info over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!

Here is my layout for the challenge:
In case you didn't guess, my Mom INSPIRES me!  Her love of crafts, and her family always inspires me to explore my creative side.  We had such a great time at a paint night together.  I love how our paintings came out!
I used a new product from NUVO.  It is a mousse, or kind of like a paste that sets when dry.  I used it on the wooden title, and also dabbed it on the base page through a stencil - you can see a bit of it behind the flowers above.
You can see the gold a bit better in this photo.  I fussy cut all of the flower embellishments out of a 12 x 12 page from My Mind's Eye, then layered them and added some with 3D pop dots.
Another close up of the layers of flowers and some added bling.  I created a pocket behind my photo and tucked in a card for journaling.

Here is the journaling card - and yes, so blessed to have a Mom, who is also my best friend!

Another close up of the NUVO gold mousse - love this stuff!

I think I am going to have to purchase it in other colors too!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I hope my layout will "INSPIRE" YOU to play along with us this month at the Challenge YOUrself Blog - Hop on over and check out all of the other beautiful INSPIRATION from the FANTASTIC Design Team there - and get all the details / contest rules / prize info, while you are there!   I can't wait to see what you CREATE!
