Bloom Where You're Planted

Good Afternoon everyone, today I would like to share a Spring layout with you. Summer is just around the corner, so this is still the perfect time for this share.

I snapped this picture of the Grandsons early in May when this shrub was in full bloom. We have lived here for 27 years and never seen such a beautiful show from this shrub. The boys were here to go to ball practice, so out we went to snap a few photos. I will share the rest in a couple of weeks.

Here are some closeups....

I took the opportunity to use flowers on my boy layout, since they matched the photo perfectly.

I cut my title using a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons cut file. I just love this saying. I stamped an Inkadinkado flower beneath.

Here I stamped a Family sentiment stamp by My Stamp Box.

I used the June sketch from Boy's Rule Scrapbook Kits

I was also inspired by the following challenges -
Scrap It Girl - Recipe Time - Use Brads, buttons & bling
Love To Scrap Challenge Blog #56 - Anything Goes with stamping
Silhouette Challenges - Anything Goes

Product List - Echo Park - Happy Go Lucky paper, stickers and bling; Recollections cardstock; AC cardstock; Little B corrugated tape and flowers, buttons, brads and bling from my stock. Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!!
