Spring in DC

There are bunch of fun challenges at Scrapbookers Anonymous this month, one of them is August A to Z Challenge, it is fun, go check it out!

I choose to use patterned paper and cardstock paper from American Crafts


the photo I used on this layout was taken in Washington DC last Spring when my mom visited us


I love these blooms......



and the crocheted lace sticker border looks like the real thing....


but I think my favorite part is the doodling...


on these flowers and leaves...


Thanks for stopping by, I am taking a short vacation, to the Grand Canyon, will visit you when I get back....

meanwhile, check this out -

That crocheted lace sticker sure fooled me and yes, those flowers are gorgeous but I have agree the doodling is my favourite too. Don't be surprised if one day you see something similar on a page of mine (if that's OK with you of course).
Thanks for playing along with Scrapbookers Anonymous.
