A Flowering Bunch SOTM June Blog Hop

Welcome to our June CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring "A Flowering Bunch".  If you've come from Laurie Newton's blog, you are on the right track. This stamp set of ten images, four of which coordinate with the Cricut Artiste cartridge (awesome!), is a must have - it's so versatile and lends itself for cards, layouts and home decor!! 

This stamp set can be yours for  only $5 with any $50 order. If you
do not have a CTMH consultant,

My artwork is a one page scrapbook layout that I can not wait to find the perfect picture of my 12 year old daughter Haley, so I can treasure this page for ever like I do her!! As soon as I saw the title, "Uniquely You", with the gorgeous floral images, it screamed fabulous layout of Haley because she is unique, all sides to her pre-teen self (and yes, I admit some of those sides not "uniquely" cute at this age as others).  I am really happy with how it turned out. Love the look of the "bunch of flowers" stamped across the bottom in desert sand on the bamboo cardstock.

Here is a close up of the flowers. So fun playing with our alcohol-based markers!  I'll admit that I try to use as many solid stamps as possible but after doing this layout, I think I will be looking at my stamp choices with a whole new eye. Working with the markers on these flowers brought me back to when I was a kid, diligently working on my coloring books. And I can't get over how cool my final flowers look - I keep admiring them over and over again!!

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love it if you took time to leave me a comment if you like my layout.  Now, it's time to hop on over to Annette Green's blog to see what wonderful creation she has come up with this "flowering" stamp set!
