Love You Mother ~ Crafty Secrets & Memphis

Good Monday morning!

Did you have a good weekend? We did, we went to Memphis for the Kings of Leon concert with my kids. Those guy's are amazing, they put on a great concert! We stayed at a hotel that was within walking distance of the FedEx Forum. So, we had to check out Beale Street, Holy Cow, everything I've heard about it is true, LOL! Blues at it's finest, bands playing everywhere, and people dancing in the streets.

My fave place was the Hard Rock Cafe. I've never been to one and I've always wanted to go. It was so cool, we had lunch there and took it all in.

Below are a few pic's I took. All I had was my phone for pic's, I left my camera in the room, pffft.

My brother was a huge Bob Dylan fan.There were guitars from different artists everywhere.Here we all are in a horse drawn buggy taking a tour of downtown Memphis. Left front around - hubs Terry, son Dustin, son in law Jason, me and daughter Crystal. Here are my twinseys, LOL, they wore the same shirt by accident, funny how men don't care! Can you imagine a few thousand people leaving this place after the concert walking to Beale St.? Party time, LOL!


On to my Crafty Secrets project for today! See that most adorable little girl?! It's me, LOL, I still have those little black shoes, mom gave them to me a few years ago. Yeah, it really is all about the shoes LOL!I love this new medium stamp set from Crafty Secrets, it's called Love You Mother. The silhouette is so pretty, I love silhouette stamps, so vintagey! Here's the set, the coupon is so cute, along with the bird and nest, you'll love it! I made this set for my mom for Mother's Day. I got the unfinished frame at Hobby Lobby. I painted the edges with Tim's Pink Sherbet & Snow Cap Paint Dabbers. I covered the frame with K & Co's Madeline Paper Pad, and stamped the silhouette on confetti cream paper with Ranger Distress Walnut Stain ink. I cut the ovals with Spellbinders classic oval & classic oval scalloped dies. I stamped the little dogwood blooms with the Walnut Stain ink, colored them with RV11 & Y21 Copic marker's and covered the centers with glitter. I stamped the banner with my CS Artsy Banner stamp set. Other supplies include - Kaiser Pearls, white seam binding, Distress Stains Antique Linen & Spun Sugar to dye the seam binding with, buttons, Martha bakers twine, stick pins, office supply tag, corner punch, blending tool.


Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great week!

I REALLY ADORE your both your card and the frame you created Pam! These are the first samples I've seen made with this set and I think everyone will love how you used them. Thanks!

PS - All 3 of our daughters love Kings of Leon and got us listening to their music. It looks like you had fun
