do more of what makes you happy

Hello, just sneaking in one last challenge for this week.  I've done a very girly LO for the monthly challenge at Polly Scrap Kits - the inspiration is from a quote/picture which I've included at the end of the post.
Here's my LO:
 I started off my LO using the Vintage Doily Mask from Pink Paislee (She Art line) and modelling paste.  Then I used several mists and masks to create a light spray of colour coming from the centre of the page.  I really wanted to keep it simple, just a photo and with lots of colourful flowers.  And I love the final result ♥♥♥
Here are some close-up's:
 ... lots of Prima flowers and some glittery butterflies ...
 ... some twine and also cabachons ...
 ... papers are from MME and I've also used some doily ribbon sticker from Basic Grey - journalling is from my vintage typewriter ♥

... and here's the inspiration picture/quote (hence the title of my page)
Wishing all the mums out there a very happy Mothers Day - happy weekend ☺☺
