Canatara Park

I am now officially another year older. I don't think my family knows about it though, at least none of them mentioned it anyway. I did think my daughter would phone but the phone for once remained quiet all day. My boss gave me a card with a humongeous gift enclosed.. I was surprised that she even knew when my birthday was much less to remember it.. but the gift just floored me. My brother and his wife came for a birthday visit yesterday and I really enjoyed that. I have recieved numerous wishes from my online friends.. couldn't even count those all up there are just too many to count and I am holding them all dear to my heart.

Today I managed to drag myself away from Garden's of Time long enough to create a layout. I combined a challenge from WeScrap with a challenge from Sisterhood. The challenge from WeScrap was a sketch challenge and the one from Sisterhood was to use more than five flowers. Here is the sketch we were to use. Isn't it just a fabulous sketch? It is by Beecee.

This is what I came up with. I fussy cut the flowers and I made the larger flower at the bottom using a tutorial that Colleen gave us on Sisterhood. The center is from BoBunny, a package that I recieved in a RAK from Helen. The flower was so easy to make I will be making many more of these.

This is May-The Month of Flowers over at the Sisterhood so you will be seeing a lot more challenges with flowers this month.. Stay Tuned.
