Mom and Friends Circa 1950's (Designed for C'est Magnifique

This months kit at C'est Magnifique was packed full of all the things I love:  lovely quality papers from Riddersholm Design (Huntington Garden Collection); pretty Prima, Kaisercraft and Manor House flowers in various sizes and colors to match the paper collection; chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic; Rub-on's from Kaisercraft and Bo Bunny; various other scrappy goodness and my absolute favorites....two colored mists from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Add some mist and paper in front of me and I'm good to go.  Below is a list of the supplies used on this page, and the inpirational design of the sketch came from Design-Honey.
