Flowers - STP Challenge

Yay, it's April!  Finally!  I've been looking forward to the warmer weather, blossoming flowers, and the potential to wear flip flops.  However, I think Mother Nature is playing a cruel April Fool's joke on those of us in Wyoming.  This is what it looks like from my porch right now:

My poor boys are on Spring Break and this is the weather we have?!  *Sigh*  At least I can scrapbook my flowers, right? 

The new challenge is up at Scrap That Poetry!  It's a beautiful Easter poem, but whether or not you celebrate Easter, there are many pretty images and lines that could inspire your next layout.  I chose to focus on "flowers" since all of my Easter photos from recent years are still stuck on my hard drive :(.

I was inspired by the latest issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, where I saw these pretty paper-pieced flowers (page 36, "Watch Me Grow" by Robyn Schaub).  I worked for a couple of hours to figure it out, and although these are the result of more trial and error than an exact process, I love how they turned out!  I also was inspired by the recent challenge at Moxie Fab World to use doilies, so I used some paper doilies as my mask for denim blue and peach delight Glimmer Mists.

Congratulations to Heidi, who won the last challenge at STP!  I look forward to sending Heidi some Precocious Paper goodies :).

I'll be back soon with the April Kit reveal for Two Chicks Designs!  I loved this kit :).  Tessa
