Mayberry Mom

What mom doesn't dream of having the perfect family, 
and what family doesn't dream of having the coolest mom? 

Well since most of us are no June Cleaver, Claire Huxstable, Carol Brady, or even Mrs. Cunningham we have to live with our own reality. Our families are not perfect and there is no such thing as a mom who is cool ALL the time. Last month I offered the Mayberry Mom workshop in hopes that some of my customers would score some points with the wonderful moms in their lives. 

 This is my version of a workshop that was created at Christmas time by fellow consultant Chris Green. I just reworked it for Mother's Day.  It uses the Mix and Mingle Mini Album to create a four piece gift set. I added a washer necklace to make it a five piece doozy!

Here are some closer pics of each piece
This sweet gift box uses the clear acrylic scalloped pieces as the top and bottom. 

 Stand up display, great for a mantle or desk.

Desktop photo frame. Add your favorite picture or quote. 

The last piece is a cute sticky note holder that could go on a desk or add a magnet and stick on the fridge.

What beautiful items! I like the gift box best of all, I think because of the clear scalloped edges.
