You & Me (Scrapbooking)

A few weeks ago I was checking out my stash of scraps and die cuts and found a bunch of wonderful die cut flowers one of my former Secret Sister's had sent me (that's you Linda!).  I pulled them all out and set them aside so that I could use them.  Well, today I am showing you the project I made with them.
I started out by adhering all the flowers to white cardstock.  That was inspired by THIS awesome layout by Leanne Allinson at 2Peas and a Bucket.  Then I added stamped leaves (Turning a New Leaf, Papertrey Ink).  Then the addition of the little heart and word Love (Wedding Day, Papertrey Ink). 
The overall layout and focal image was inspired by THIS layout by Scrapnik on 2peas and a Bucket.
I stamped more leaves on the kraft cardstock.  Added various strips of cardstock (stamped with little lines or large chevron by Recollections sold at Michael's).  The circle doily is from Martha Steward.  I pulled out some rub-ons to use (butterflies-Maya Road; decorative strip - BasicGrey) and that with the letters (EK Success) make a black triangle.  The amphersand is from Picadilly collection (BasicGrey).  The little kraft pocket that holds the journalling is from Recollections.  The white lacey trim is a die from Linda again (thanks Linda, I kept being able to use all the wonderful things you've sent me!). 

Okay, so I like it ... but what is it about good scrapbookers ... their projects look so awesome and mine just looks so novice ... sheesh!!
 Thanks for dropping by for a visit.
