Happy Mother's Day Gazebo Artwork

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

My wonderful Daughter created this Gazebo for me for Mother's Day. She finished her sophomore yr of college studying Art Animation. Hard to believe she is going to be a junior in college in the Fall. She will be coming home next weekend so we will celebrate Mother's Day when she is home.



















I made a scrapbook layout using the Gazebo artwork. Used Art Nouveau Cricut cartridge for the Pansies die cuts. Used a photo of Pansies in the scrapbook layout that I photographed at the Dallas Arboretum. Photographed the scrapbbok layout in my backyard with my purple Petunias.
