I love this photo, but it could never figure out quite how to put it on a layout. The photo’s from 2009, that’s how long I’ve been putting it off. A scrapbooking weekend away allowed me the time to really think about how to scrap it. The flower was one from my garden, and I’m definitely not a gardener – it was growing a little wild, to say the least, so this quote suits very well. Having just the one photo on the page allowed me to include a longer quote, which never seems to work quite as well when there are multiple photos or if I’m using pocket pages. The quote reads ‘the flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all’.
The wooden feather, leaf embellishment, LOVE paperclip and envelope/heart brad are all from the Freckled Fawn embellishment kit. I combined these with Amy Tangerine white thickers, tiny letter stickers, a chipboard circular design, a Kaisercraft pearl swirl, washi tape and triangular jewelry pieces (repurposed as scrapbook embellishments).
