Happy Mom Day Layout

I used last years Valentines Day line from Basic Grey for this layout. I have been seeing one of my favorite bloggers use alot of vellum over some of her patterened paper to soften it up a bit. So I thought I would do the same thing so that it wasn't too much with the other patterned paper on top. I love the effect it came out with. I cut this funky frame from the silhouette. When I cut the hearts from the silhouette I accidentally put in the wrong size of paper since it was a scrap and the sides of the hearts got cut off. So I just made due and put them all to the side or under other paper to make it look like I wanted it that way. I really love when mistakes turn out to be a good thing.
I typed the journaling on white cardstock and added the letter stickers happy and day. The m's were cut from the silhouette and the o is another heart. The letter stickers had little hot pink hearts on the sheet as well so I added a few of those around and some buttons in colors that matched. I had to add twine since I love the stuff, and added that to some of the centers of the buttons as well.
At the last moment I pulled out some white pearls and just randomly scattered them around the layout for a finishing touch.
