Flower Fun

On Sunday I told you that I was busy creating a LO using this sketch from Swirlydoos:
This is my completed LO:

I had too much fun playing with my flowers. Think I got a bit (understatement!) carried away. I'm not sure that I like the end result so much - it's too busy. I enjoyed the process though and I think sometimes that's all that matters! :)

Translated, the journaling means: "Celine, always keep love in your heart ... without it it's likea garden without flowers".

This LO I made last week:
And this one I made this morning. After I finished sewing curtains for my bathroom, I was itching to sew some paper - haven't done that in a loooooooong time. I love the messy stitching - much better than having to neatly sew curtains! :)
Oh - almost forgot to mention - I used this sketch for the design of this last LO. It's a Pagemaps sketch by Becky Fleck. It was used for a challenge on one or the other blog I think but I just can't find the challenge now??!!
Thanks to everybody who sends me well wishes regularly. I can assure you all that I'm really taking it slowly most of the time. I only scrap and do other things as and when I feel up to it and I make sure that I get enough rest every day. I've learnt a couple of lessons the hard way by overdoing it so now I'm taking it bit by bit. :)

I just love your take on the Swirlydoos sketch. I also love how you used the WeR Memory Keepers Nonsens paper...beautiful.

You are really outdoing yourself. I love your creativity and your stitching on the last layout is wow. I always break needles when I do stitches. I used to make all our little family's clothes now my machine is used exclusively for sewing on crazy is that?

Lovely layouts Michelle. You are very creative. It sounds like you are now really looking for something to keep those hands busy ... way to go girl, sewing bathroom curtains. Love stitching on the layout.

all so pretty and fresh. I especially like the sewn one, the colors are yummy. Glad you are feeling up to creating-that is a good sign! :)

Beautiful pages Michelle. Love them all. I also wanted to do the pagemaps challenge. I never got around to mine, but I so very much love yours lots.

I think this sick leave is being very kind to our scrap mojo juices as you are doing some really lovely work.

Hope you feeling much better too.
