Scrap time today!

Friday I spent the entire, gorgeous day making graduation cards for a consignment job with the local, new coffeehouse in town. I made about 20 cards! I hope they get noticed and sell. Part of the proceeds help my niece with funding for Schools for Haiti.

I have been working with some fabulous papers from Creative Imaginations Fresh line for Scraptalk- just love the colors. Several were in muted shades of blue and brown - a favorite combo of mine. I worked on these last week and posted them in the Scraptalk gallery.

Today I had a blast working with the line containing the hot pink and girly colors - too much fun! I also incorporated a few challenges from Busy Bee Scrapbooking. The first was to make something out of chipboard - I couldn't resist making a crown for Abigail's head in a photo taken at swim lessons this past week.

Yesterday I spent the entire day working outdoors - weeding flower beds and transplanting perennials, and planting the flowers that I just love from Vermon View Greenhouse. Of course I had to take photos - I am so attracted to the hot pink colors. As I look at my flowers freshly planted in pots - they just glow. Especially the geranium planted high on a corner of the deck - it just glows with the background of green pines behind it. It seems to be waving to the hummingbirds- here I am! I know I was buzzed by a hummingbird in the past week or so - I hope he flies over soon - I am sure he will notice that I have planted food for him!

I had to create a layout with some of the flower photos I took - a digitally created collage of hot pink flowers. I have been saving my plant ID markers for a long time to use in a layout. Finally did it, using those from the flowers planted yesterday. Welcome to a glimpse of my garden!
