One thing I consistently hear when I am teaching is that people are afraid to put flowers on their husband's or son's pages.  I don't have a hard time with this at all.  My husband, of course, loves the rustic outdoor pages I create for his book, but he also loved the colors on this page.  This is Chantilly, and it's matching dimensional elements.  Are you surprised?  .I sure am!  On first glance, I think when we see this paper packet we see the pinks, yellows, and greens.  But I created this layout to bring out the warm blues of twilight.  I used the Artiste cartridge to cut the title "spring."  The little treasure on these two pages is the use of the large rose from the March Stamp of the Month.  I tucked them behind the clusters.

So there are flowers, spring colors, and pink glitter gems.  I hope I've inspired you to step out of the "normal" colors and try something new with your pages!

LOVE this layout. Every time I want to make a cluster of things I think, "what would Brenda Rose do?" I still haven't come close to achieving the beautiful work you do. PS ... I hope you'll take a peak at my Mission Possible kits when they come out this weekend. One of the layouts looks similar to this ... makes me feel creative to match with you.

I love the pink and orange flowers against the teal cardstock. Such a pretty contrast!
