and yes we are broke by the end of the month 
and 5 kilos heavier from all the cake wine and food LOL
ok so i am being dramatic hahaha
back to the challenge over at 

pull out your flowers ladies and get busy
the challenge is to use flowers on your layout
paint them draw them cut them...
rubons die cuts stickers crocheted... 
we dont care what you do get as creative as possible
take a look at what the design team created
(man they complained when they saw the challenge LOL)
BUT they are super talented and created some amazing layouts

well here is my take on the challenge
and I had to use this gorgeous photograph of our little girl who
kicked off the birthday season by turning 18 (OMG)
on Sunday!!.....

this is one of my new floral crocheted and beaded embellishments they will be in the 
shop soon 

my good friend 
is sponsoring this month layout challenge
so we will be waiting for you to play!!!


  1. I'm groaning along with the DT..I feel their pain...but of course, will join in 'cos it is SUCH a challenge for me to use flowers.
