Busy Week!!

I have been busy this last week it seems non-stop! Taxes are due soon and I had to get those finished for my business or else and then my DT stuff for Hannah's needed to be finished! And on top of all that the weather sucks!!!! UGHHHHH!!! I am definitely an all seasons kind of gal but enough is enough! I want SPRING now!! Not 2 days of it but a whole season!! Am I asking for too much?! I don't think so!! Ok, I am done ranting now. Lol!! I just had to release some pent up agression and get it over with I guess. Lol! Okay, so I have one layout to show you today and a close up of the really cool flower that I did. I have been wanting to try my hand at these flowers forever and finally did it! I was doing my usual of checking blogs the other morning when I visited one of my absolute favorites and found the super easy instructions to make these awesome flowers. These flowers are so easy to make your own and instill a little of your style into! Did you think I wouldn't tell you who's blog is my favorite? :) Of course I wouldn't torture you that way now would I?! It is the super talented Vicki Chrisman!! I just love everything she touches and creates!! Her creations just blow me away!! Anyways, here is the layout I did for Hannah's: And here is a close-up of the flower:
I just wish the colors of the papers I used and all the little details would have popped more and been more true to the actual layout! I used the Ancestry line of products from K&Company and as usual did not use the type of photo expected to be used with this paper. Oh well I am just me and I guess this is how I see the world (totally opposite of the norm)!! Time now for me to get back to the drawing board and work some more. I will post more pics of the other projects that I have completed another day!
TFL!!
Happily Scrappin',
Tracy
