Spring Flowers

Yesterday I got to spend time out in the yard planting and tending flowers. I planted some beautiful Oriental Lily and Gladiolus bulbs along with some annuals. I also had two Easter Lily plants to move to the flower bed. We really didn't have anything in this yard when we moved here, so it's been a slow process of planting and moving things around. A good friend is in the hospital right now, and I wanted to bring her some flowers - unfortunately, none of mine are blooming right now. Instead, I decided to make my own flower using the fun tutorial found in the May Scrap n Art. I love how it turned out and I cannot wait to make more!

I tweaked the flower a little bit by using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a flower center. Make sure you check out the tutorial - it's really easy and great fun! Thanks for taking a peek :)
