Crochet goodness

2 weeks ago I received a gift from a friend - a package with beautiful handmade flowers. I loved them so much that I decided it will be a shame to stuck them in the drawer. I needed to use them right away. I found some photos that will work with the colors and made 2 layouts.

I used only one brand of patterned paper with this one - Amy Butler. I wanted to add some sea themed beads but found only 2. The little shells and the sea star metal bead are from the Making Memories Vintage Findings collection.
Supplies: patterned paper (Amy Butler for K&Co), chipboard (Heidi Grace), border punch (Fiskars), embellishments (Making Memories), handmade crochet flowers

Hooray! I finally figured out how to use the 12" platform with my Revolution. I die cut the green vine border and the title. My Revolutions never worked so hard :)

Supplies: cardstock (Wausau Paper), patterned paper (Making Memories, SEI), dies (Quickutz), border and corner punches (Martha Stewart), white pearls (Making Memories), handmade flowers

The last crochet flower was snitched by my daughter for her layout.
Thank you so much Louise! Your flowers are gorgeous!
