Exploring the Garden

Was a busy bee yesterday and managed to complete this layout of Leela exploring our garden. I promised myself recently that I would start using up some of my old stash before I buy any more - I'm terrible at buying patterned paper and then deciding that it's too nice to use! I've had these papers for a while, and the photos too. I couldn't decide which of the four photos to use, so went with all four - I like the way the movement flows through the photo series. 

I decided to go with homemade embellishments for a change too, and spent ages cutting out flowers and leaves from the papers. I like the finished result though, so definitely think it was time well spent.

I joined the UKScrappers CyberCrop this morning - I've never taken part in one before so I'm a bit nervous about it, but I'm looking forward to trying all the classes and maybe trying techniques and styles that I wouldn't normally.
