Lasting Memories Challenge #39 "We're Going Floral"

Happy Sunday

My favorite day of the week for sure.  Today I am back with another layout for Lasting Memories.  I so totally love being on their Design Team and everyone is so helpful and inspirational.  This week our theme is "We're Going Floral".  Well I have to say that I am a bit sick of flowers lately, hehehe.  I think I've done about 4 or 5 layouts now that have had nothing but flowers in them and I really didn't think I could do another one...but this challenge called for em.  Whether you choose to use flowers ON your layout or use a garden photo, it's up to you as long as we see flowers, is what the challenge criterias are.  I went through my folder of  pictures that I have wanted to scrap and found these.  Now, I really didn't have a floral layout planned for these pictures, but this is what I came up with.  I hope my son doesn't think it's too girlie.  LOL

I also entered this layout in a challenge over at Paper Secrets called "Scrap Your Ass Off".  Now the reason for this challenge is to do 1 layout a week for however long it lasts.  If you do NOT participate 1 week, you are OUT of the challenges.  The last person to be left wins a prize.  Now, I am totally hoping to keep participating and even if I don't WIN, I've gotten some of my pages done at least.  I don't think I will be doing my layouts for multiple challenges, but this week it just fit, and it called for flowers too.  Hehehe

The challenge was a sketch

plus these items

3+ photo corners
altered or raw chipboard
dry or heat embossing

Wow, huh?  Well, it was a challenge for sure.  I hope you've felt a bit inspired by all of this and hope to see you again next Sunday.  Remember, next Sunday is also a new Simply Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky.  I can't wait to SHOW off what I made as's sooooo cool.


  1. Wow. That was quite a challenge at Paper Secrets. That's a lot to put together for one page. I'm so glad that the LM layout fit in with the challenge. Your page is wonderful. I love the colors, both in the photos and the papers. Great job journaling. I love the background flowers you used behind the word trip. Very nice.

  2. wow- great job combining challenges, and the flowers work well on the LO even if it is for your son!! =)Tiffany

  6. Brenda, you made an awesome LO even if you are sick of flowers. I think I never get sick of flowers, I think I want to put them on everything. Your son will not think it is too girlie because you did just enough.My favorite day is Sun. as well.
