Lasting Memories Challenge #57

Hey everyone!!

First I want to say my prayers are going out to a fellow Design Team Sister Evanna. Her and her family found out this week that her little girl has leukemia. As a mother to a 3 yo, I just couldn't imagine what she is going through and how strong they have to be right now for her little girl. Please send a prayer her way as we all know it can do wonderful things! My heart goes out to you Evanna.

It's Sunday Sunday Sunday!! We have an awesome challenge for you this week at Lasting Memories!!! It is all about FRAMES & FLOWERS on those layouts! So break out those pics, get some scrappin' goodies and get some layouts done! Do you need some inspiration? Then check out what my Design Team Sisters have cooked up for you! Brenda, Marie, Karen, Caryn, Vicki, Amy, Michelle, Wendy, Joelle and KimThere are, as usual, awesome layouts to get inspiration from.

This was SUPER easy peasy for me because we all know just how much I love, love, love flower!! I may have a little boy but that sure doesn't stop me from adding those flowers on my layouts!! The frame part was kind of tough cause I apparently don't use frames much! So that part was kind of a challenge for me. So here is my layout:

I added lots of flowers, most I made myself. 
The pic opens like a book with my journaling inside.
 "Grow" "Bloom" wording I had in my stash.
The frame around the page is chipboard I painted.
 Flowers I pieced together and added my uber fav stick pins from
Denise for only $1 each!
 The blue flower I cut with my Cricut Expression, inked and glued together.
I added another gorgeous stick pin.
 And VIOLA!! Lots of flowers and some frames!

Here's a video to see out it was created!

I hope you like my layout and get inspired to get some of your layouts done. Don't forget to check out my Design Team Sisters at Lasting Memories and spread some love. You have until Saturday Oct. 1st to get linked up!

And if you could, please say a prayer for Evanna.

xoxo Charity
