Amongst the flowers

If Mr Blogger is laying nicely this scheduled post will be be up on Saturday morning as I will be setting off to do a car boot sale. It's indoor so not weather dependant fortunately. Just bits and pieces to get rid of including some craft stash from my clearout. Our challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is swirly whirly. I went for a layout for a change as I have so many photos still to do pages for. The photo mat is K&Co. I've used DI Spun Sugar on the papers and doily. The swirl, butterflies and the corner were made with Memory Box dies and the corner has been sprayed with spray and sparkle silver. I've used a mix of flowers. Very proud of myself as the ribbon flowers were the last of a packet. Although I love tem it is good to actually use the last of something sometimes rather than have lots of packs with a few in each. The large pale pink flowers are from Crafty Emmas, cherry blossom from Wild Orchid. I made the other flowers using my new TH Tattered Flower border, Core'dinations and DI Tattered Rose.

I would like to enter this into the Anything but a Card challenge at Creative Craft and Anything Goes at Simon Says.

Enjoy your weekend everyone. Last chance to enter my candy today and also gain another entry for every post you leave a comment on. Sorting out the numbers to choose a winner tomorrow will be fun!
