WOYWW #398 - Flowers Abound

Here's my desk today. Just got a couple deliveries, 2 books for preschool and 3 stickles.

The stickles colours are:- Lagoon, Gold and Raspberry Tart.

The Raspberry Tart isn't exactly what I was expecting as the basic pink colour is flecked with holographic blue a bit like the Crystal.

My makes for this week are, a tag for a SWAP.

Then I used the left-over flower diecuts for a journal page and one of my favourite poem quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay.

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.

Finally I did the last page of my 60 page 12th 12x12 scrapbook album.

Still have over 100 photos to scrap to finish off 2016, goodness me!

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

PS And my favourite music of the moment is Ed Sheeran. I downloaded his latest 2 singles and have pre-ordered his new album due out on 3rd March called Divide. Oh YES!

Hi BJ, great tag and journal; page. Love the colour of the flowers. Annoying when something is not really the colour you expected, I agree. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

Ed Sheehan is a genius! I love the song that's being played on Radio 2 at the moment. You always create lovely things but that sunflower LO is beautiful, I love the lettering!

The flowers are the most beautiful colour and now I can't make up my mind if they look better with the yellow or the brown - both colour combo's are stunning! Love the sunflower LO and love Ed Sheeran too!
Have a great week,

I still have pages to finish from 2015!! So you are doing well in my book! The Raspberry Stickles sound very interesting, and I love the blue lagoon. I love the 2017 tag, the blue and brown go so well together. Thanks for sharing, Lindart #47
