I got outside of my box!!

You know, I try to get outside of my box from time to time (please don't tell my kids-cuz I behave much better in the box! LOL), but I got out for the weekend and this is what came out.  I was so proud.  I used Scarlet Lime monthly papers- yummy, by the way.  I used elements like flowers to cover up things in the photo that I didn't really need.  The lace flower was made by gathering lace into a circle and putting two buttons, and the blue and pink flower was cut out of my cricut and it is a cut out flower, so the part come apart, so I kept stacking them over and over and raised the flower.  Let me know what you think.

While at the Everyday Scrapper, be sure to check out the February white space challenge for a chance to win a great prize.

I recently saw a layout using ribbon as the stem of a flower and loved it, so I tried it myself and loved the way it turned out.  I made the flowers out of leaves cut out of my cricut and covered a large brad for the center of two of the flowers.
