Anything Goes - Make your Own Embellishments

Here we are again, Anything Goes Challenge time!
Last time we had 223 entries for our Die Cuts challenge! There are some fantastic entries there, I am still making my way through them, sorry, I will catch up!
Here is my entry for this week. I have made lollipop flowers to decorate a scrapbook layout of my daughter Emma, in my mum's garden when she was about 20 months old. She is blowing a buttercup and looks really sweet. When I think I can't possibly find any more photos to scrap of her, out comes another one! Actually I think you can scrap any photo, good or bad, they are all memories. The papers are a Bo Bunny Love Bandit shaped paper. The paper is so lovely I didn't think the layout needed too much so I just added the flowers, some butterflies (obligatory for my scrapbook pages, lol) and a die cut Marrianne Design vine. The flowers are made from Prima paper, spritzed with a gold mica mist spray and then scrunched up and folded out again, and held together with a brad. I've detailed the edges of the blue papers with diamond stickles and added some bling and a title. The butterfly punches are MS. Everything except the title are at Craft Den.
Today as well my March entry for Scrap Our Stash Challenge has been posted. I blogged it a few weeks ago. My guest DT entry will be posted soon as well as a bio on the 31st with a layout I did this week. I'll brag about that later when it's posted, big lol!
Have a good day!

  4. I have to agree the paper needs little embellisment as its so beautiful but your lollypop flowers are just perfect and just the perfect colours they really showcase another beautiful picture of Emma.
