To compliment my bold "In Bloom" page a couple of days ago, I made this page with the remaining begonia and fushia photos from our garden visit in California last September. It is based on the sketch at www.artfuldelight.blogspot.com.
Check out the other entries for the March Sketch Challenge at Artfuldelight's blog. The sketch is really versatile. You still have a few days to get in an entry for a chance to win her April kit.
The gorgeous flowers in these photos were grown at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, California. We loved seeing them! Unfortunately, NC does not have the climate for such beauties so we take advantage of gardens wherever we travel.
Today's tip: Print your journaling on matching cardstock to make a last minute addition.
Originally, I'd planned to add a journaling block in a contrasting paper on the right side of this layout. However, the frame around my photos seemed like a better place AFTER I got everything glued down. So used a little leftover kraft paper and printed my journaling. I trimmed and glued these strips in place so they are hardly noticeable as an after thought.
ALSO, check out Shimelle's blog post Class giveway for a chance to win a whole weekend of on-line scrapbook training! Sounds like a wonderful experience. I used to do Scrapbook, etc.'s Scrap-a-Faire and this sounds similar so I'm definitely going to check it out.
Thanks for visiting today!
