My Sheri Crafts #84: April Showers Bring May Flowers to Mom!

For our challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts I wanted to play a bit more with my Boss Kut Gazelle. Wanting to do a Word Book for a looong time, I finally cut my little MOM book from chipboard and really LOVE how it turned out.
I cut my TTF Tahoma letters at 4.25" and welded to rectangles in the Fun Time III software, making each succeeding rectangle a bit wider. I covered my pages with various DPs from MME's Lost & Found Market Street 6 x 6 designer paper pad, because I LOVE it still! To finish decorating it, I cut my flower from a coffee filter using Spellbinders' Spiral Blossom One and the photo frames using Floral Ovals. I used Tattered Angels Cherub Pink to give the flower a bit of soft color/sparkle, tied ribbons to my 'M' and book rings and finished off with a sprinkle of pearls & swirls. Just a fun little book for any Mom! Think it would be awesome to give to your Mom with photos of you & her or to your DD or DIL to hold photos of their  children.
Hope you'll find time to create a flowery "Mom" card/project and share it with us for this challenge!!!  Happy Mother's Day!!!  ;~)

Marge, I love your book!!! The paper you used is so pretty. I assume you are still loving the Boss Kut. I have been thinking about getting one. How does it do cutting small intricate things. I get frustrated with my Cricut Expression when it just chews up anything with small details. Is the software you mention in your post part of the Boss Kut system.
Anyway, I love your MOM book!!
