2014 Flowers


I LOVED making this layout.   Our flowers this year turned out so great.     I even called my hubby in to look while I was looking at pictures to print, I had a picture of the day we planted the 3 mixed pots in the left picture and then the one that I took last week that I used in the layout.   It was amazing to see the difference and how much they had grown over the summer.

As soon as I saw the sketch for the mid month challenge at Stuck?! Sketches I knew that it would be flower pictures that I would be using for my layout.   So this morning I went right to work on it.
I've never made a layout with an arrangement of pictures like this but I really really like the look.
You can check out the sketch below and also all the details on this challenge HERE, and also read about their great prize for the month.

Plus while I was deciding on papers and such to use.   I also had in mind the challenge I had seen posted on Friday at Frosted Designs to use Chevrons on my layout.  So I decided on Basic Grey - PB&J collection.    It was still out on my desk from a layout I made last night and I knew it had chevron papers in it.   Obviously my background paper is chevron, but also the one pale yellow-green banner paper is very tiny chevrons.   Check out the details on the challenge  HERE, they have a great prize this month.

Thanks everyone, this was such an awesome sketch, I'm sure I'll be using it again. Maybe with a bunch of pics of the grandkids and I can also see it as being great as a Christmas layout of decorations. Thanks for the inspiration on your blog.
