I haven’t made many layouts lately.  I do love making them but it seems that I have run out of good photos so I was happy when I found this one of my mother-in-law, taken when she was a young lady.  Stamperia’s Flower Alphabet papers and Creative Embellishments chipboard accents were just what I need Read more ..

I love flourishes and I love using them with my floral clusters!  That’s the focus of my layout today, see the flourishes peeking out from under the flowers?
