Hey friends!  It’s finally warmed up enough here for me to start potting plants and working in my flowers. Yay!   After a long Nebraska winter it is something I really look forward to.

I have always loved gardening and since we moved from town to the acreage I have so much more room.  Today I thought I would share a layout that I created about my love for gardening using the new “Summer Sun” collection.

Using a circle punch to share little photos of some of my favorite flowers seemed like a great way to be able to incorporate a number of photos into my layout.  I loved that there are so many fun pieces with this collection that I could mix in with my photos like this Wood Veneer sun.  I just added a little yellow acrylic paint to this one but I love the way they look just as they are also.

I also love these chipboard buttons. So many fun pieces in the Insta Pack and Brag Cards also.

This brag card worked well for my title.   The touches of gold in this collection are the perfect highlight.

Can you see the gorgeous texture of the papers in this photo?  My favorite EVER!!

There are so many great pieces and elements to this collection that would work well for not only a layout but for a mini album. Which is what I think my next project will be! I certainly have enough photos to get a good start on that.

I still have a number of garden plants on the back deck that need my attention first. Peppers, tomatoes , cilantro and a few other things.  Oh, and hoping to get some rhubarb started.

I’m hoping I’m leaving you inspired to break out your papers and do a little creating of your own.  Thanks for stopping by!
