Flex #5, Flowers...

Patty's challenge this week is simply FLOWERS... ahhhhh I love flowers !!
So I totally relished doing this layout of my sister and daughter, aunt and niece:
Flowers I used: Prima flowers (12), Heidi Swapp large orange Gerbera (1), Smaller pink and Red one (not sure, but the BEST I have ever used, so thick and nice), a few miscellaneous from kits and some Heidi Swapp Credit Card flowers (girl)... I also used a block (flower, of course) stamp with Versa Mark around the edges and not to forget the Chatterbox floral paper!!

Journalling is taken from emails between my sis and I on 14 March 2007:
Cant wait to {you} have another little baby...
Forget how small they are.. Kaela grew so fast...
Now when I see her I feel like I'm meeting someone new, but oh so familiar!
I look at her & I still see a 1yr old with a tiny fluffy fro, cheeky smile with no teeth & tiny hands stretched out to be picked up!
Then I blink & this little girl is looking at me and telling me about school & her friends & BOYFRIENDS??? LOL !!

Needless to say this brought me to tears... and I knew I had the perfect journalling to accompany the photo I took of them both recently. Katie and her guy Isaac had come to visit for the weekend and Nath, Mikaela and I took them out to Yarralumla Nursery Cafe for brunch, the perfect Sunday morning.

Love this girl so much!
JOY!

Love love love....LOVE this one! Gerbera daisies are my absolute favorite flower, because I believe them to bring forth the "happy." The browns and pinks...and the message here; it just makes me grin so big!
