Lasting Memories #57 Flowers and Frames

Happy Sunday all,

Today over at Lasting Memories it's all about Frames and Flowers...2 of my most favorite things.  I chose a picture of my mom that is one of my favorite.  My mom LOVES her flowers and her garden.  Most of the time you can find her just sitting outside enjoying her beautiful yard.  Now be prepared
this is a VERY busy and loud layout
All the cuts are using the Storybook cricut cartridge.
I forget how much I love using some of my carts.
I also took MOST of the color out of the photo
and highlighted just the pink and blue flowers.
I framed my mom's picture with some sheer ribbon
around the backside of the photo and twisted
it at the corners...I saw this technique in a 
magazine a while ago and kinda like it
I mimicked the iron work trellis in her yard 
and added one behind the vines and flowers.
I only chalked the inside of the flowers
and added a bit to the vines and leaves.

I do really like the look of this page even though it's very busy.
Now, remember to join us at Lasting Memories and create a layout using flowers and frames.  
Summer is almost gone, but you can preserve it with a beautiful flower layout.
