Reader Marilyn submitted this layout for the August Flower Challenge. She said, "I am excited because I have three boys and very RARELY get to use flowers. But I just finished this page and I thought it turned out very nice and I was looking for a challenge to try with it.
My flowers are homemade, sort of! :) I used ribbon,chipboard flowers, circles, paper flowers, buttons, and brads. I basically just layered different aspects together and covered some with patterned paper to get the effect I wanted. Again, I can't get too frilly or girly with these boys! I especially like the use of tiny safety pins as the leaves. I have lots of these pins but I have never found a use for them that I really liked. All products are from Close to My Heart".
Now it's your turn to take the Flower Challenge. Just submit a project in which you've used any kind of flowers. Email a picture of your project along with a description (or tutorial if you want) to firstname.lastname@example.org. See all the details in August Challenge below.
