Scrapbook Tuesday...WaTer on Tuesday...

Yikes!  I better get a shuffle on while it is still Tuesday!  As we had a Bank Holiday last weekend, I planned to catch up on some sleep and have a play in my room.
I am not showing you the evidence of my sleep catch up but I will show you what I made in my room....

It has been ages since I did a scrapbook layout and I really enjoyed this one...
Aren't these die cut flowers darling?  This is a NBUS  Poppystamps die and was bought for me by a Special Friend.  You know who you are.  Now you know for sure that I love it.  I coloured them with Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Abandoned Coral (NBUS), Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, and Pine Needles DIs.  I also cut some MB flowers used with the gutted piece of background.  Some of the flowers to the left of the photo are Prima, some punched card and manipulated and one is layered paper flowers, spritzed, scrunched over a brad and prayed with Brushos when dry.  Things I do for a layout ey!!
These pink flowers are ancient.  Heidi Swapp bought from a craft show many moons ago.  The corner is a Susan Wilson die.
The papers are MME and ...oh darn I forgot.  There are also lots of Snippets used.  This butterfly was "borrowed!" at a retreat several years ago and has been nestling in my Tin of Shame. 
The letters were cut on the Cricut.  I glossy accented them and sprinkled some micro beads on them, as well as the centres of my die cut flowers.
This red flower is a brad by Tilda (NBUS again) which I bought when I saw them in a shop in Prague.  I really didn't expect to see brads in a fabric shop in Prague!!!!
Right, it is still Tuesday so I am joining Elizabeth for her T on Tuesday, though I am upping my water intake for May as I am conscious I don't drink enough.  Joining the Girlies on the swings at the Snippets Playground too.
If you think you may have seen this photo before, you are right.  I scrapped the same some time ago.  However, last year I entered it into my work's Wildlife Photography Competition and it won!! Well, I had to scrap it again as it was a shame to waste the photograph. 
Thanks for calling by.

Sam, what an absolutely adorable layout. I was truly impressed with all the flowers, the butterflies, and the rest of the snippets you used. I like how you laced up the lace and paper. It was so unique. Never seen anything like it before.

I'm glad you shared this photo, because I had never seen it before. And for it to have won first place is quite an HONOR. Way to go!!

Thanks for sharing this layout and your water with us for T this Tuesday. BTW, I'm also trying to drink more water, so you aren't alone in that.

Bee-u-tiful Hettie!!!
You really brought those flowers and everything to life.
I am very fond of bees.
Water is my favorite drink and I agree with you. I find it challenging to drink as much as I should.
Happy day after T day.

Lovely Layout!! And that is a great photo. Always love all the layers you create. And that corner die is intriguing...

There should be a special prize given by Di and I for the best combined snippets/NBUS use on a project! You would win for this week with this beautiful layout, Sam!! That photo is, indeed, SO awesome! And, of course, I LOVE how you did "bee-lieve," clever girl!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

Rita said...

Tin of shame?? Is that where you put embellishments you bought because you thought you couldn't live without them but then never remember to use--LOL! I should have one of those! Very belated happy T-Day! ;)
