Flowers and stalk(ers)!!

We have an abundance of gorgeous blossom trees near us and the girls love collecting posies, but the blossom is all gone within a few days so I was very fortunate to get some lovely photos of it this year before they picked it all off!!

My all time favourite photo (until the next one!!) was altered with some programme thingy to make it slightly dull and grungy. Don't ask how just find a different blog with someone who knows what they're talking about!!

I used a sketch that I found on Spinnvilds blog and copied it like a faithful puppy!! I wonder if she has figured out that she has a stalker?

I used K&Co papers, lots of distress inks and BG letters that were painted with a custom made shade of green and stickled with that bright green that everyone buys at christmas and then never uses again!!

The pink blossom transparency is cut from some packaging that came with a box of toiletries from Xmas 2 years ago!! You know how you collect these things and think "one day I will use that" Well the day has come!!!!

Beautiful page and your own blossom outshines those in the garden.
