First Day of School - lots of homemade flowers!

Here is a scrapbook page I made for my little girl's first day of school.  Sadly this was almost 2 years ago and I am just now scrapping it!  I am so far behind!

The patterned papers I used are from Scrappy Cat.  I used the Locker Talk cartridge for the title, Accent Essentials cartridge for the scalloped circle I wrote the journaling on, George and Basic Shapes was used for circles of various sizes for the stacked circle flower.  The flower by itself on the upper right was made using various scalloped circle punches.  I had a lot of fun experimenting with a lot of different homemade flower techniques for this layout.

This flower was made using various scalloped circle punches and a lot of crumpling.

Side view of flower - it has a ton of layers.

This layout was shared on the following sites:
