Sweet blooms and more...

Hello Friends!  Happy Monday! :)  I thought I'd start the week with a little bit of scrapping and share a layout created for The Papercraft Hub and Fancy That Dies.

Lately I've been admiring all of these talented scrappers who use flowers.  And lots of them.  haha.. I'm usually a little bit more reserved with those sort of embellishments but I thought I'd try my hand at it too.  But.... I added a little twist to challenge myself somewhat....



I had to make all the flowers myself.  Therefore no pre-made/manufactured flowers allowed! Argh!  I know right..?!  What was I thinking!  hee..

So what did that leave me with?  Sweet Blooms from Fancy That Dies of course.  And (because I love layering so much...) I added the Small Scallop Floret to some of the base petals of sweet blooms. sigh.  I also love the flourish script that was printed onto the Bo Bunny patterned paper.



Adventurous?  For me... definitely! But I enjoyed creating these embellies.
