Now on to my project:
I made a 12 x 12 layout of my mom's flowers using Colorbok Signature Paper Homespun 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper Pad. The title doily is a recent RAK from a swap from a group on Facebook I recently joined. I used Pentel Outline Marker to write the title- Do You See What I See? I have a close-up of what I'm referring to in the last picture. All of the photo mats are from Colorbok 6 x 6 in Light Bright Designer Paper as is the Cuttlebug ProvoCraft Vintage die cut to the right of the pink butterfly. The top left picture is a cluster of Amaryllis. The top right picture is of Purple Iris and Roses. The bottom picture is more Roses.
Close-up of the title and the name of the flowers.

Now for the last picture I wrote under it- Do you see the turtle? It's not homegrown in the flower garden, but I couldn't resist not getting a picture of it. The plant to the right of the turtle is Turkish Turbine. We usually have turtles laying eggs in the yard around this time of year, but this turtle is too small to lay eggs. That's what I thought the turtle was doing.

That's all I have for you. Thanks for stopping by!

UP next is Shannon H- and I'm sure she has something to awesome to share.

Here's our amazing line up in case you get lost:

Such a pretty layout and the design perfectly showcases the beauty of the gardens flowers. It must be cool and weird at the same time to find turtles just hanging around you garden. I think it awesome that you included that story in your layout description.
