Who Gives A Scrap, the Yahoo Group of croppers I am in, is doing Elsie's 52 Challenges, one per week. I'm skipping around a bit but here is my attempt at Week #5:

Embellish a Floral Accent: No matter what your page topic, I bet you can find a place for a flower accent in your design. But take it up a notch. Embellish the center of your flower with a mini clock, a tiny thread-tied-button or patterned paper. And don’t be afraid to turn a large flower shape into a photo frame!

I embellished some Prima Months of the Year flowers with pearls. I added more pearls around the flowers along with some Jenni Bowlin stickers stars. I stamped more floral flourishes onto some notebook style paper, cut them out, and added pearls to those too.

  2. I LOVE this layout, I might have to scraplift it, for my personal use only of course, haha. Ok seriously, I know how busy you are, I think you have a scrappy fairy that visits your house every night and makes all this fabulous stuff. I need the fairy to visit me, can you please send her to my house?
