Sometimes all it takes is a phrase or saying that starts motivation for a layout and then adding a FILEKUTZ by LisaJane is sure to complete the inspiration. I have created this layout using Flourish Flower Frame lk00265....I love the gorgeous flourish and how you can layer the flowers from this file. The mat is very versatile and can be placed vertical (see file image) or horizontal (like my layout).
After cutting and layering the flowers from the file, I also added some Recollections tiny mulberry roses as centers and throughout the layout. I inked the silver Making Memories bling that I had a teal color and added some small bees and ladybugs to give it more of a "garden" feel. I then dug into my old fiber drawer and added some around the flowers and clouds to give it a "whispy" look. Tiny alphas spell out the saying "If Mothers Were Flowers in the Garden of Life, I Would Pick You".
