Summer Scrapbooking

I have been spending time scrapbooking lately and I have completed quite a few layout I will share with you soon.  These photo's are from my mum's garden in June this year, usually there is a lot more colour in her garden but many of the plants have not bloomed as well as usual due to the wet weather this year.

I have used the pretty hostess exclusive papers Cheerful Treat for my layout, with Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzaz and Whisper White.

I used a retired stamp set to stamp the background flowers with Rose Red ink.

Here are the pages together, I made a few paper roses and used the Bird Punch to make the leaves.

I used the Labels Collection framelits dies and Apothecary stamp set for my journalling, colouring the flowers with Stampin' Write marker pens.

I have wanted to make a layout of my mum's garden for quite some time but I never got around to taking photos at the right time - my mum does all of her own gardening (there's a lot of grass to cut too) and  prefers "cottage garden" style flowers.

Beautiful layout! Such a wonderful way to preserve those gorgeous flowers all year long! Love those pretty rolled flowers!
