A Day to Cherish

This is a page I have done for the May A2Z Scraplets Challenge.  The Challenge is 'all about Mothers'  so this is a photo of my Mum.  The photo was taken last year when we all went back to the UK to see the family.  As you can see by the photo Mum was very happy to see us all.

I have used plenty of chipboard from A2Z including the flourishes around the flowers, the title and the flourishes around the frame.  All the gorgeous flowers are from Scrappers Garden.

Thanks for looking.

9 Frame Photo Display

I hope all is well with you all.  I am here this morning to share an BTP Project I created using some of the small flowers from Scrappers Garden.  I bought this Kaisercraft Nine Frame Photo Display a while ago and needed to fill the frames and what better way than with flowers.

Here you can see the beautiful Mulberry Roses.  They come in all different colours to match every project.

Here are a few more close-ups using the Cabbage Flower and Wild Orchid Carnation and more Mulberry Roses.

Here is one of the handmade art tiles which also come in different themes.

I hope you have been inspired today.  Let me know if you have.  I would love to hear about it.

For this morning's layout I have used some beautiful flowers from SG - all hand made of course.  As you can see I do love a bit of chipboard and all of this chipboard is from Dusty Attic.

Here is a closer look at these beautiful flowers.

I just love these sprocket flowers (the black and white one in the middle).

That's all from me today.  I hope you all have a great week and keep checking out this great blog.  Don't forget to visit our facebook page.

This is a page I have done for a challenge site called 'Show Us Your Stuff'.  All that is required is to use flowers and include something handmade.  

All the flowers are handmade but not by me but by Linda at Scrappers Garden.  Aren't they beautiful?

Thanks for looking.

First Page for Scrappers Garden - Angelic

Angelic by Karen McLaughlin

Good Morning Scrappers Garden Fans

Can I start by saying a big thank you to Linda for having me.  I received my first parcel of hand made flowers a few weeks ago and have to say I was so impressed with them.   They are very easy to work with and come in different sizes to fit all those little gaps.   

So here is my first layout.  I have gone for a girly page using lots of SG products.

Here there is a variety of delightful blooms - all in pink! 

I also have used a couple of these very pretty handmade butterfly tiles.  I have pulled apart the white berries stamens and poked them under the flowers for more dimension.

Thank you so much for dropping by and don't forget to join our facebook page and check out the blog regularly for updates from our fabulous Design Team.

Happy Scrapping
