Barbara's Garden

When I saw the challenge #66 for June at "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  I started looking through pictures on my computer for what I could use.    The challenge was to make a layout using a Grid Pattern.  So first I went looking for series of pictures but I was having trouble finding pictures to include of me.   I found 4 pictures of me when I was potting our flowers this spring.   I thought it was going to be really boring to make a 4 picture grid of just basically the same pictures of me.   So I went outside yesterday (in between rain showers) and took some pictures of all our flowers we have around  the house, a couple planted in the ground and the rest in pots on the decks and entry way and around the house.    I decided to start and end the grid with pictures of me potting the flowers that  I had first found and then picked 10 more pictures of my flowers and I printed them all a little less than
3x3.   Then I laid them all out on black card stock so they were separated a bit.   Found a piece of floral patterned paper and put it all together.   I went with a large title sideways on both sides and then added some little flower embellishments and just journaled Summer 2019 at bottom right and I had my grid inspired layout.

Here is the link to the challenge at   "CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  and more details.
