Practical Scrappers Challenge - Flowers

This week at Practical Scrappers the challenge is to use flowers. I love flowers and typically I love making them too, but I've been swamped recently and so I didn't make handmade flowers for this challenge like I originally planned. Instead I used my trusty Cricut and the new Cindi Loo cartridge (the images on that cart are adorable!) to create the cute blossoms in this layout that features my middle daughter with some of our rehabbing raccoons. I also used some really yummy Jillibean Soup patterned paper with flowers and some teeny-tiny chipboard blooms too (perhaps to make up for the fact that I didn't hand-make any flowers!)

Actually for as simple as this layout really is... it took me FOREVER it seemed to finish it! Go figure!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Cricut Cartridges: Cindi Loo and Give a Hoot
Chipboard and Felt Embellishments: Dear Lizzy and American Crafts
Doiley: Wilton Cake Supplies
Other Tools: Martha Stewart Border Punch

Great work Beth! I'm just warming up to using flowers with my new baby girl! I think I've scrapped boy stuff for so long flowers are foreign to me, but not for long:-)
