This is my take on Kylie's reciepe challenge at the May Cyber Crop at Uproar to Scrapmore. The May Cyber Crop theme is "Celebrating Mothers".

Kylie's challenge for this Cybercrop will be a Receipe Challenge.

Here are the ingredients you will need:

1 x cs or pp for Base
1 x double sided pp
1 x scalloped border(30cm)
1 x 11 inch scalloped circle
Lots of embellishment to suit your LO
Journal Tag
1 x 5x7 photo of your mum

Recipe Instructions
1 Grab your 12x12 cs or pp .This will be your base.
2.Using your double sided pp, cut 2 lengths of 3x30cm strips. Place these at the top and bottom of your base , flush with the edges.
3.Turn over double sided pp. Now cut 2 lengths of 5x30cm strips. But on each strip, one side has to be torn. You can ink these if you wish. Place these strips overlapping the pp on the top and bottom slightly and the torn edges facing towards the centre.
4.Cut your scalloped circle in half. Place slightly on an angle, on the left hand side of your LO.
5.Place your photo in the centre of your LO on the same angle as your scalloped half circle.
6.Cut your scalloped border edge to 3 pieces measuring 16.5cm, 9.5cm and 4cm. Place the longer edge along the left edge of your photo. The second longest at the bottom of your photo. The last piece goes up the top of your LO overlapping pp but flush with right edge.
7.Place your journal tag in the right hand corner of your photo.
8.Place a cluster of embellishments that you have picked for your LO, in the bottom left corner of your photo.
9.Place your title to the bottom right of your photo. I have used a journal tag which has writing already on it for my title. You may like to do the same.
10.Place a couple more embellishments at the top of your title.
11.Finally, doodle around borders and embellishments.

You have now completed your LO.
