A brand new challenge is up and running over at 123 Get Scrappy! Fun, fun, fun!
Here's my take!
I used the top row: Earth tone background-frame-wood elements
|patterned paper: MME, Recollections, various; stamps: Stampin' up, Hero Arts, Kasiercraft, wood pieces (birds, flower, title): Recollections, Make it Crafty; paper flowers: Prima|
This layout makes me giggle. Especially the title. My hubby's parents are absolute experts at gardening and all things planty! Their thumbs are greener than green and have been known to bring a seemingly dead plant back from plant purgatory! There are over 150 tomato plants and even more other delicious vegetables and plants in their city backyard which yields enough food and beautiful flowers to service a small country, I'm sure! As for hubby and I, we're not quite so skilled....not even close. So when hubby's parents decided to plant a small vegetable garden in our backyard in an attempt to get the grandkids on the gardening wagon we rolled our eyes and gave the garden a couple weeks before it became a lesson in disappointment. To our pleasant surprise, the garden flourished! By late July we had delicious cucumbers and grape tomatoes and fresh herbs filling our dinner plates until September! I never thought we'd be able to keep a garden going...but now...I'm a believer!
Here is the April Challenge Bingo Board for your creating pleasure!
I can't wait to see what you create!
I'd like to submit this to the following Challenges:
-Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: April Showers/Spring Flowers
-Scrappin Great Deals Challenge: Mood Board (I was totally inspired by the flowers and wood background!)
-S.W.A.T.: Drill #53 (love all those spring flowers)
