Creations by AR - Customer Blog Hop




Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Creations by AR Mother's Day Customer Blog Hop. We have 11 blogs participating! 
If you have arrived from Lisa's blog, then you are on the right track. 

The theme is "Mom's Favorite Color" and her favorites are red, pink and white. I chose the Carry All template by CbyAR. This template is so versatile and I chose to leave it blank for now but will add some sweet treats for my mom later. Can't spoil the surprise now? It took only a sheet of paper to build this box!



I used the Floral Fantasy embossing folder to give some texture to the box, added some Martha Stewart patterned papers from the Love Paper Pad and wrote the sentiment in my own handwriting. For the embellishments, I punched some butterflies from glittered paper, added some Mulberry paper for the flower, a flower brad in the middle and a lace trim to finish the box. There! Sweet and simple! That's how MOM likes it:-)
