May Challenge at Creative Accents!

Yes, it`s that time again, time for a new challenge at Seriously Creative Challenges, and it`s one I absolutely love!!!

If you`ve visited my Pinterest boards, you may know that I have one devoted to embellishments, and many of those are flowers!  There are so many ideas out there, the sky`s the limit, really!!!  For this layout, I crocheted a few flowers out of embroidery floss (tutorial here) AND made some rosettes (much easier with a scoring tool and some hot glue, I tell ya!)
 And here`s a close up of my flowers:
I really hope you`ll join us this month in making some beautiful flowers from scratch!  Hmmm, maybe I`ll put some of these cute rosettes on a Mother`s Day card...

I`m going to enter this layout over at Frosted Designs.  The first challenge posted for their NSD online crop was to make a project with only patterned paper, no cardstock allowed!  Fun, fun, and if you`re thinking my rosettes and journaling strips are cardstock, think again - it`s BoBunny Double Dot (love that stuff).



  1. Lovely layout of lovely ladie.. love your flowers.. Take Care

  2. Great Layout!!! I love homemade flowers...hope to participate in this one!!!

  3. Ooooh! I love all your flowers! Those crochet'd flowers are gorgeous!! I really like the rosettes with the cute little buttons on the top! They would look beautiful on a Mother's Day card! I'm glad you had fun at Fiesta! I totally meant to stop by and say hi, but my weekend was incredibly busy, I didn't even have time to do any scrapping!! boo!

  4. Really pretty page Roxy :) I love the pattern paper AND the flowers (one of my favourites). I make a ton of flowers, but I don't use them nearly enough--this is a good challenge :)
    It was great to meet you at Fiesta, next time maybe we can sit together :)

  5. Great layout, love that paper.
    I love to make my own embellishments and love to make my own flowers.
    I wonder sometimes why I even bother to purchase embellishments, lol.

  6. Great page love browns and pinks together!

  7. Gorgeous page, and such a lovely picture of you and Brenna, bless her (can't believe how long her hair has got, and how much she is growing up). Love your rosettes and little flowers.

    Hugs, Carole xxx
