Mothers Day Blooms

I am going to attempt this post and hope that Blogger has their issues resolved! I am going through Blog Withdrawl!

This layout was done for the Mfr. Challenge at A Cherry On Top which is Martha Stewart Crafts. The photos are my Mother's Day flowers from 2010 and 2011. Every year John gets me these HUGE hanging baskets and they flower straight through till October! I usually throw them away about the time I start to put Halloween decorations up!

I used a sketch by Susan Stringfellow and only one lonely piece of patterned paper which is OLD I tell ya! Its from Prima's Stone Rose collection which has to be 6 years old already! The rest is just plain old cardstock which was strange for me but I couldn't match the colors up without having patterns that didn't fit the theme of the page! I used Martha Stewart Garden Gate border punch at the bottom. I LOVE this punch! Its so elegant to me! Letters are Making Memories and Pink Paislee foam letters that I colored to match the pink, orange and purples in the flowers. Flowers are Petaloo leftover from this month's Swirlydoos kit. A purple ribbon and bow from my stash and a journaling spot from American Crafts and it's complete!
