The Color Room Challenge #129
My Sister My Friend

Hello everyone, thanks for calling by. 
Well I have been having "withdrawals"
  I just haven't had time to do any challenges for nearly two months!!!
Too much else going on plus a lot of DT work etc 
but I have finally caught up.
I saw the current challenge over at The Color Room 
& I just had to join in as green is my favourite colour.

I took inspiration for this layout from my good friend Heather Jacob.
Heather did a layout recently where she used all
white on white flowers & it looked amazing.
Thanks for the inspiration of all white Heather.

I did some lovely texture work on my background & 
then proceeded to just about completely cover it up!!!
That was smart, NOT. Should have planned it better.
You can see some of it here peeking out underneath my photo.

I have used a sweet little 2 Crafty Chipboard Sentiment,
"My Sister My Friend".
The little mini Filmstrips at the side of my cluster are also from
2 Crafty chipboard.

A friend of mines two little girls were the Flower Girls at a Wedding 
recently & she gave me these gorgeous photos.
Such beautiful little girls, Hannah & Maddie.

Next up I have used loads of my favourite Green Tara Flowers.
The large ones with the pearl centers are called "Sakura" 
& are part of their newer fabric flower ranges.
  I have also used some of their wired Velvet Leaves too.
The ribbon I have used for my bow is also from Green Tara too.

Well thats about all for today. Thanks so much for calling by.
Until next time.
