One random entry will win a prize which will be announced on this blog. The winner must contact me by e mail to receive their prize. A few of our favourites will also be selected to be featured on this blog!
The final (& most important rule) is to have fun!!
So, let's get on to your challenge for this month!

Challenge # 2 ... Flowers

Added Extra : Include red or pink!

Just a few ideas to get you started ...  create a scrapbook page about your favourite flowers, scrap photos taken in your garden or  you could embellish your project with flowers or make your own flower embellishment. A stamped image of flowers would fit the theme too!! I'm sure you will come up with lots more ideas!

Closing date for entries is: 14th March at 1pm.

One random entry will win this Howdy Doody 6" x 6" Pad from the new Miss Caroline Collection by My Minds Eye.
MME ~ Miss Caroline ~ Howdy Doody ~ 6" x 6" Paper Pad *NEW*

Here's some inspiration from our fabulous Design Team.
If you want to see more of their work, just click on their name to visit their blog.


Jennifer's lovely, bright card features kraft  cardstock, MME Miss Caroline papers, MME brads for the flower centres, twine and a sentiment from Favourite clear stamps


Using patterned paper from the Dolled Up Pad by MME, glossy accents, a doily and some twine, Jenny has made this really cute card.

Louise's "Garden of Eden" layout is beautiful. Her supplies include: chalkboard alphas, tattered rose distress ink pad to ink the edges of the doillies and papers from the MME Lost and Found Two

A pretty layout by Lisa-jane entitled "How Does Your Garden Grow" using American Crafts papers, kraft cardstock, vintage photo distress ink applied with a blending tool (both by Ranger) and glossy accents on the flowers.

I hope the DT projects inspire you!

I can't wait to see your flower projects!

Please remember to link directly to your project and not just your blog and to include a link back to the challenge. If you do not have a blog, please e mail your entry to me at and I'll upload it for you.

I'll be back soon to announce the winner of challenge 1 and the Top 3!!
