Bee You!





   Happy Wednesday!  As you know, Wednesdays here at Scrap-Creations = Stampotique Designers Challenge, and I am thrilled to be this weeks challenge hostess, and I have chosen flowers for this weeks challenge. Here is my blurb :


     We may be nearing towards the end of summer, and for most, the flowers are fully bloomed, but for me, some of the best flowers are yet to come.  I love the gigantic sunflowers and the autumn mums, and for that reason, I challenge you to use flowers in your creations this week. Have fun !


     This summer I planted a ton of flowers, but to my surprise, a very random sunflower started to sprout right under my bird feeder, which I assume was a sunflower from the bird seed that  landed on the dirt and seeded it self.  The end product is this beauty:



I often roam Pinterest and was extremely inspired by this project by Katy Leitch, which led to my project today.
                                          I used the following stamps to create my journal page:

                                                           *   Medium Bee with tiny bee
                                                           *   Big Bee
                                                           *   Sunflower Large
                                                           *   Sunflower Medium
                                                           *   Honeycomb background


I hope you have a great day, and I hope you will join us at Stampotique!

Thanks for the great (not to mention motivational) Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week, Kristen. The flowers and the bees steal center stage, but, I also love your honeycomb stamping in the background!
