Do you record your family sayings? I don't think I do enough of this...I really need to have a notebook handy to jot quick things down. One family saying that I can't forget is the quote, "Bloom Where You're Planted." It comes from Steve's side of the family and they say it a lot. Steve actually has a plaque with the saying.
In honor of Word it Wednesday over at the Pink Paislee blog, I decided to focus on this quote. I thought about the word "bloom" and let images come to me. I thought of a window box full of flowers and decided to recreate it using the Queen Bee collection from Pink Paislee.
I placed my photos toward the top of my page, a trick I learned from the talented Davinie! Then I built the flower box, complete with wrought iron scrolls along the bottom, which for me was the shaped paper. I fussy cut the flowers and vines...one of the many reasons I adore the Queen Bee collection. Here is my final product! Do you see the "flower box?"
