Layout time( Backporch Memories no. 1)

I've got 13 new layouts to show you remember? So here's the first...
I figure I'll sneak one in between blogposts whenever I get the chance. I'm still busy clearing my inbox after 4 days of absence & see that we have rolled into another day, so thought I'd get this up before retiring. So much for putting my feet in to soak & reading my new book (see last post) Ain't gonna happen...



At last I got these photos scrapped...6 months later! The challenge here was to make the flowers...self-explanatory really...I have seen them around on other people's layouts & was dying to try them myself. So easy, so cheap, so effective! The scroll, flower outline stickers & "beautiful" word are all OLD stash (Doodlebug) so I was happy to see them go ;-D Paper is my new Cocoadaisy April kit. Simple but nice... I want to do some more similar...I can't wait to make some more flowers...think I'm going to use up a whole lot of offcuts (I have 4 barrels worth...) & make some for my stock...in my spare time, (???) LOL!

Love the LO ... love the simplicity ... love the colours ... I wear crocs almost all the time, as they are the only shoes that don't make my feet ACHE ... but, they are not dressy or good for walking, so need some proper 'sports sandals' ... believe me girl, don't ignore your feet ...

Just love this layout and those circle flowers. But hey, please share with us how you actually make them ... as I have also seen it on a lot of card makers creations and would love to try them myself. Hugs from Desire

Lovely layout Helen...why is it that a layout with blue and red together is always such a hit?
