Challenge #7: Flower Power

Got Prima? Got Heidi? yeah us too!!
Get them out of the cute tins and jars they come in and get to cutting them, folding them, what ever you can think of doing to them do it...and girls...tsk tsk...we not talking about 1 or 2 flowers..we want to see some flowers...

Bust out your loot and get floral all over the place.
Remember to post your links to your work in the comments sections so we can all be inspired to use up those blooms!

I was bound and determined to use up every large prima and HS flower i owned and with this layout I DID JUST THAT!!


I used to really stock up on Dollar store flowers and just pull them from their stems.
I still have a few bushels to use up, so I worked them here.
All stuck to the page with glue dots.
That is a band of ribbon with the title written on it with White Sharpie Extra Fine Paint marker, it is currently my favorite of all my white writing utensils.

Also Simone:

Once I got started using up my flowers, I just couldn't stop.
These were once my coveted, only to be looked at supply.
I only own 2 little milk bottles, but they are the same 2 bottles I bought 3 years ago!
Not anymore, I am using up those babies in a big way.
That vase...well, that's a piece of clear packaging with blue vellum for the water.
The vase was hand drawn (badly) with a Slick Writer.

I just found this BLOG! I love this....I have been trying to use what my friends and I "GHETTO" scrapping supplies. I have things from years ago...I never use them and I am trying to use it all and trying to be creative at the same time...sometimes is hard when you have die cuts and stickers...hehe! I look forward to the challenges on this blog!
