I am entering my 8"x8" scrapbook page into the following challenges:
Stampalot February challenge had an "in the garden" theme. I used lots of floral paper, flower embellishments and a butterfly and a bird element.
Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #134 provided the sketch for my layout.
Shopping our Stash Weekly challenge #40 showed us a photo as an inspiration which inspired me to add the butterfly element and also use the heavy floral patterned papers.
CropStop challenge #59 was to use at least three flowers. Apart from using lots of floral patterned paper, I also added three paper prima flowers and to the center of each of those I added a ribbon flower.
PaperPlay's challenge was to make something for a female relative. This page will be given to my mother for her to put a vintage photo of her mother on Mother's Day.
Here's my layout:
