In honour of Spring's arrival
It has been so beautiful this week, with the sun shining and the temperatures in the double digits and I can't help but think of flowers. I think of flowers in my garden, flowers on my cards and flowers on my layouts.
Now so many times when talking with fellow scrapper's I find out how many only use flowers on girl pages. I, for one, only have boys, but I still love flowers. I don't have any problem using flowers on boy/men pages, and have even been able to use softer, pastel type colours too. I don't think that there is anything wrong with it, and I don't really understand why in this day and age, we still have gender specific colours and items. It just doesn't seem proper, to me. I guess that is what makes us all different, and make us who we are.
I thought that I would share a couple of the layouts I have done in the past that I have used softer colours on and flowers too. I hope that these will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. Use those soft papers and flowers and let your imagination go. You just may like your end result! Enjoy!
