It is a great set with each of those words and some great flowers.
The words are fun to color in but I left them black and white for this card.
The sentiments are perfect for scrapbooking too.

Have a wonderful week!

Scrappy Saturday

Welcome to Scrappy Saturday.
This morning I am doing a vendor booth at a garden show so I thought it appropriate to share this one page layout.
I saw this quote on a home decor piece in one of my fave local boutiques and new I had to use it with my poppy photo.
I also created this for a NSD challenge.
The papers are from the Live Beautifully Paper Packet.
The flower is a Cricut cut from the Flower Market Cartridge.
So much fun to create.
I am glad I took that photo because the poppies didn't last long with the winds and rain we've had.
But they sure brightened up the bungalow garden.
Have a great weekend friends.

Yesterday's card was all about stamping with one hue, today's card is all about color.
I used the same exact stamp set but pulled out a variety of ink colors.
Thistle, Lagoon, Blossom and Glacier.
Sometimes I mask off stamped images when I do a grouping but I kind of like the effect of the overlapping colors here.
I think I will be using this sentiment for girly graduation cards.
Once again, the Live Beautifully stamp set.

You can get all the details about the May 
National Scrapbooking Month specials HERE.
Have a great weekend!
