Nuts About Sketches Week 155 Challenge- Daffodils

This is the first Nuts About Sketches challenge I have participated in. This is week 155 challenge. You can check it out here.

This is my take on the sketch I rotated it around so it would work with the photos I wanted to use for this layout.

These photos are from my garden in Maryland. I absolutely LOVE daffodils. They are so pretty and smell so nice. It was the best thing that let you know that spring was coming!

Journaling: Since moving to Florida the thing I have missed most are the daffodils in the spring. This was my garden at Barwick Dr.

Paper: We R Memory Keepers- Over the Rainbow collection

Chipboard: Maya Road. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Party Pink and Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer on them.

Buttons: Basic Grey

Glitter Flowers: Recollections (Michael's Brand)- Boutique Fleur

Joy and little orange tag are from my stash.

Letters: Cut at 1 1/2" using the Cricut and Once Upon A Princess cartridge

Swirl: Cut at 9" in length using the Cricut from Ashlyn's Alphabet

The inking around the journal box is with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads- Vintage Photo.

Helmar 450- for glittery flowers, Joy and buttons; Helmar Acid Free for chipboard and swirls

Xyron 150- for the letters

Atg to attach photos and paper strips
