Happy Mother's Day!

Hi everyone! To celebrate this wonderful job title Modern Sugar Blvd. has released a new line called "It's A Mom Thing..." It's so much fun! You can see the variety of images HERE in their store.

I chose one that I truly loved because I have had so many babies of my own and tote them around everywhere with me! I can count the number of times on two hands that DH and I have left them with a babysitter. And it wasn't just any babysitter, it was someone either in our immediate family, or friends that we've known and trusted for a while. Then DH and I would run out, scarf down some food, then speed back home. haha!

Okay, now on to my little project...

Isn't she cute? I turned her into an ID holder for my diaper bag. This bag is distinguishable from other bags (because that's the way I roll - haha!) but I thought she would be incredibly sassy on it anyway. This is a luggage tag holder that I purchased for 40 cents from Allthatscraps.com. You can find them here but you better hurry, because I buy them in bulk all the time. haha!

I decided not to paper piece her, I wanted her in a solid colored outfit so she wouldn't compete with my DP that I designed. Please, no applause! ;) It was just a scrap of pink cardstock and all I did was draw lines in black and red, then colored in accordingly with my white gel pen a la Burberry design. This hot mom is wearing some bling pearls that I added to her necklace, and here is the back of the tag:
It has a place for a baby's name, emergency info, allergy/special information, and an address. Although we have a baby boy right now, this is the bag that I keep in my van with extra everythings. Now I'll be tempted to sling it over my shoulder and show off my tag! Thank you for coming by, I wish you all a wonderful day whether you are a mommy to kids, pets, DH (lol!), an aunty, or any female title. CELEBRATE! And head over to MSB's store for a 50% off sale -going on today in your honor. :D
*Love and Aloha*
