Personal Mothers Day Treats + Surprise

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a lovely evening! I just submitted two assignments for my University degree and i am feeling pretty grand…like a total weight has been lifted haha. I recently posted my 2014 Mothers Day Gift Guide and i have had such a lovely response to it so far. If you read my post then you would have seen a little hint about a second Mothers Days instalment with a little surprise for one of my lovely followers.

Well, i was recently contacted by the lovely H.Samuel team about getting involved in a crafty challenge and create a home-made photo frame with my favourite photos of me and my Mum for a sentimental and personal Mothers Day gift. Don't get me wrong i absolutely love treating my Mum to little presents as she is the rock of the family and does so much for us, but i do love little sentimental gifts with hidden meanings that'll be cherished for a lifetime. When i was getting a little creative with the picture frames my Mum kind of took a peek in the room and had a little snoop and said it reminded her of when i was little…that literally got me welling up and all soppy haha.

H.Samuel supplied me with some cute crafty pieces and two mini picture frames to get creative with. I personally think i did a pretty good job and love how they turned out. I used a mixture of ribbons, colourful gems, buttons and paint to craft up these picture frames. I was going for a vintage esk theme for one and then a really blingy and girly theme for the other…can you get which one is which haha?! They are no where near perfect but i do love how they turned out and i think my Mum will like them too! When i hung them up to dry they did look rather cute together! I then chose two of my most recent favourite pictures with my Mum…it was hard narrowing down my favourites but i loved how the final pieces turned out!

If you are still thinking of a little something to give to your Mum this Sunday then maybe a personal picture frame might just be it! However, as a little added surprise from the lovely H.Samuel team, they have offered a £50 voucher for one of my lovely followers to win. As the giveaway will be running past Mothers Day it'll be the perfect post Mothers Day treat, something to share or even a little treat for yourself!
