This is the third layout I've made of the flowers we have planted and blooming this year. There are still more that I haven't used yet. But I just love when it gets warm enough each year to go to the nursery and buy new flowers, makes for a beautiful start to spring and then during the summer I just get to sit back and enjoy all that was planted. This year we did get a few more perennials too so those won't have to replaced next year. These pictured heres are annuals but they are blooming so nicely now I wanted to get pictures.
I used Sketch #105 at "SKETCH-N-SCRAP" for this layout and my papers are from the Kate & Co. Cambridge Court collection. In fact it is one piece the A and B sides. I just cut it into 4" strips and then put on a background of white paper to keep them together. The flowers are handmade by
a scrappy friend in a group I'm in and I thought the color was perfect.
I also will enter this layout at "SCRAP OUR STASH" May Book inspired challenge.
I was inspired by the rosy colors of the sky in the book cover and the word summer as I will enjoy these flowers all the way through the summer. Plus you had to use flowers on the layout and I have that in floral paper, flower pictures and 2 awesome handmade flowers.
