This layout was a scraplift of my dear friend Tara's, and she scrap-lifted it from the Feb 2008 PageMaps... thanks for the inspiration girl! I really like this close-up because you can see how I popped the flower with some foam tape, then used a brad to adhere through the background so that it pulls the center of the flower down and the petals lift up, espically on the layered ones! Cool, huh?
I love these pictures, the cotton fields were so beautiful and unexpected. We were driving through Alabama on our way to a conference and stumbled upon a handful of these fields... I finally decided to stop and check them out... stunning! I had never seen this in person and we all really enjoyed getting out to stretch our legs.
