Grandmas & Nanas (PSA Essentials/Nikki Sivils Blog Hop!)...

Welcome to the PSA Essentials - Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker Blog Hop! If you are stopping here from the lovely Vera Yates's blog, you are in the right place.
(Oh, and you can't have a fab blog hop without a giveaway, so keep reading for details!)

As part of the PSA Essentials team, I'm thrilled to get to work with Nikki Sivils's wonderful Audrey collection to create some Mother's Day projects and share them with you today! 

First up is a refrigerator magnet that I created using papers and die-cuts from the collection. I just love this photo of my little rugrat and the sentiment is definitely what happens whenever we go visit his Nana -- I stamped the word "naughty" from the set, Many Moods, and I think it was pretty much spot on!

To create the magnet, I simple adhered the entire panel onto some thin craft board and then attached some magnets I found at the dollar store.

I also created a special card for my own mother, my little guy's Grandma. He is very much the twinkle in her eye and I know they both just adore one another. I paper pieced the trio of hearts (from Bouquet Toss) by stamping them on the patterned paper from the collection and fussy cut around each. We don't live near her, so I made this card big enough to display in her home.

 I hope you enjoyed my blog hop projects today! Now, on to your next stop, the amazing and talented Jeanne Streiff's wonderful blog for more blog hop inspiration!
