Nothing like a fresh new month. Whoohoo!
New challenges up around Blog Land. Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge is no different!
This month's challenge:
I realize that for the southern girls, this is not springtime – but in the Northern Hemisphere – 1 May is springtime, and time to be out in the gardens. Scrap something about your garden – how you love to be out in it, or what it means to you, or alternatively how you hate to be outside gardening at all. If you are not a gardener ‐ you could also alternatively scrap about an outdoor sanctuary that you appreciate –perhaps your mother’s garden or a park????
Now, this was a really tough call for me. I LOVE gardening. Love it. I have plenty I could scrap about. Problem is, I usually do lots of garden pages. In fact, I even have a little garden scrapbook...
I could scrap my parents GINORMOUS vegetable garden, I am sure they have various cool photos. In fact, I know they do.
But, I had this fancy dancy paper from Ruby Rocket that I won....It's their Vintedge Line. See, proof I am LUCKY! I didn't have to do anything but leave a comment!
I feel SURE I will win lotto at some point! Vegas here we come!
The poor girl blogging from Ruby Rocket was at CHA and said she'd post pictures but then didn't get a chance. I am SURE she was in the middle of paper/travel/hotel/craft overload. So, anyhow, I posted a comment and told her it was all good. It IS all good. We make promises daily and do our best to make them, but sometimes things like life sorta jump in there and next think you know...you are sending some girl in NY paper from Australia. ;-)
So, back to my initial point. New paper means you get to try to make it work with something, which is why I went on a deep dive for these Kew Garden photos from way back. It is some pretty paper with some very great patterns...want some???
If you play along? I am sharing some. Might even throw in some of the new flowers I've been making...smaller accordian blooms...to match it!
Like I used on my page here!
And the other fun thing I did with this page was use a super amazing sketch by Heather who has the coolest blog ever and is running a sketch challenge over at Scraptastic.
Also, this page goes along with another challenge over at Pixie Dust Paperie where they have a challenge about scrapping a city like London! Whohhooo! Check it out! Love the London Card.
Fun stuff! Wish the photos were a bit better, but what can I say. It was ages ago and I had to take a crawl in a dark closet to even find them!
So, gather up your flower photos, your best veggies, your deck container garden shots and give it a play. I promise I'll stalk you and ask you all sorts of questions. I do love green and considering the snow around here, I will have to enjoy your greenery and blooms. Happy Tuesday!
