Challenge #54: Flowers for Mom

Happy Tuesday, Users!

As we come into the latter part of April we know that the warm weather, flowers and sunshine are just around the corner....
It's also a time to celebrate the special Mom's in our lives, whether they be ours or someone else's. : )

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

We're looking to see your fabulous entries on our Use It Tuesday site using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday May 3, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE054 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here's a look at the DT projects for the week:

Danielle documented that special pre-motherhood time with a photo from her cousin's pregnancy photo shoot. She used an Echo Park collection that she's had for about a year and was completely untouched. She also added some tags, pins, buttons and canvas butterflies that were in her stash too.

Stacey went with the "flowers" and "Mother's" themes with this gorgeous Mother's Day creation. The flowers on the card are at least 3 years old!

Tracy created this insightful layout about her Mother and all the wonderful lessons her Mom passed onto her. The patterned papers are only about a year old now, but did come from the scrap bin. The sticker letters and numbers, however are all over 6 years old. The blue ones are so old, they were no longer sticky and needed a little extra adhesive help!

Stephanie made this simple beauty with her Bo Bunny Jazmyne paper (about 2 years old). She also handmade the flower embellishments using paints from...not her stash, but her kids...that's over 10 years old!

Tammy wrote out her thoughts on Motherhood in this layout celebrating her son, born 4 years ago. Everything came from her stash, including "paper so old I don't even know who makes it!". What a fantastic memory piece!

Sherri used a Crate Paper collection that is at least 2 years old, but also added in some Petaloo flowers that have been in her stash almost as long! 

Heather used some "very old" flower stickers. It was a big package and it was time to use it up and make room for more hoarded things. She also used paper and ribbon from a card kit that's been in her craft room for almost two years now.

And this week we have TWO Guest Design Team members for you:

Rina was our winner from our diecuts and punches challenge several weeks ago. She put some amazing detail into her project that week and is back again with an equally detailed creation. Rina tells us she has an extensive craft room and "all" the supplies are many years hoarded!

And Janis won our All About Spring challenge. She's back this week with a cute and adorable purse fold card using some great spring papers and flowers that have been in her stash for over 2 years!! Simply adorable, Janis! Thanks for playing with us again.

Your turn and we can't wait to see it....Go Use It!!
