This page I created for a challenge at Page In Time hosted by Julie (you need to check out her fun blog, she makes me laugh . What I needed to do is scrap a layout using a scrap product or technique starting with each letter E, L and F. For the letter E, I embossed a flower at the bottom of my page, the F and L are all the flowers and lace. The twisted was to use 3 or more photos. Have a nice Memorial Day!
