This week I created layout with a photo I took of some violets in my yard. I love violets!


I used the new stamps to create the floral border and I fussy cut the post from the fence on these stamps.
The alpha that I used for my title is one that Lisa Gregory shares on her blog. (Thank you Lisa!)
I used the botanical floral stamps as well to create my flowers and everything including those were colored with watercolor pencils.
