May Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop Theme Challenge - Florals

Hello and Welcome to the May Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop!  This month we have a Theme Challenge of Florals!  I love flowers, don't you??  There are sooo many options using Stampin' Up! products for flowers!  I am anxious to see what everyone creates!

If you've already been hopping, thanks so much for continuing!  If you are starting with my blog, I certainly hope you'll hop all the way through and check out all of the awesome inspiration from the Design Team.  I am inspired each month as I hop through and I'm sure you will be too!

I have been trying to catch up on some of my Scrapbooking of our Grandkids so although I am typically drawn to adding flowers to many of my pages, trying to kind a picture that I needed to scrap to use with florals was a little harder than I expected.  Finally I found a picture of Taylor and Laken from a photo shoot a few years ago and noticed there were some yellow wild flowers in the field.  This seemed like a perfect excuse to add flowers and to use one of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors!

The photograph that I chose to use was taken on such a super hot day that I felt that like I needed to create a few sunrays.  Instead of having the rays radiate down onto the photograph, I chose to have it radiate out of the photo.  Of course if you have children, or like me have grandchildren, they really are the sunshine of your life!  I used some Therm O Web icraft purple tape,  similar to painters tape or washi tape,  to tape off my sections.  I use this tape because I hate to waste my Washi Tape!  You can use the same pieces over and over to do this.  I used the new Stampin' Up! In Color of Pineapple Punch on Stampin' Up! sponges to sponge in my sun rays.. it's such a pretty vibrant yellow!

I also tried to recreate some of the grass and wild flowers that we saw that day! For the flowers I used the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch, The Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies, The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies, and the Leaf Punch.  I did my journaling along the Sunshine Rays as that helps me to keep my handwriting straight.  For the flowers and leaves I used Whisper White, Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, and Old Olive.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll continue on the hop by clicking the name right after mine on the Blog Roll.  Blessings, Tina
