Hello sweet March ...

Welcome to our first month of Autumn down under and I hope some glorious weather awaits us - I always love our mid seasons, they are my favourite months of the year.

This month our challenge is a pretty one - please use this delightful image as your inspiration point and add the criteria of FLOWERS to your submission and please don't forget to tell us what inspired you.
Criteria is FLOWERS

And this is how our team was inspired ...

I just loved these flowers from the inspiration photo. I found a photo of the flowers that my mother in law had at her house. She took the photo and it was with some other photos that she had given to me. What a memory this will be for my kids.

I was inspired by the teacup to use the Botanical Tea papers and make a birthday card for my tea-loving aunt. She also loves to garden, so the flowers were a perfect addition.

I scrapped another page for my Rockhampton album, featuring a garden photograph. I kept the page very simple, and embellished with flowers of different sizes, shapes and styles.

I used a photo from eons ago for my friends 80th birthday album .. she was so emotional when we gave it to her.

 I was inspired by the flowers and the colours. I had this picture of my son smelling the roses from a couple of summers ago and the purple and fushia flowers were an almost perfect match to the flowers in the photo.

 I used lots of flowers. Roses are trailing from the trellis and looks like a cottage garden. 

This month I have used some of the colours from the inspiration photo as well as heaps of flowers.
The background paper is one made in a class at Time to Create and involved spraying, adding punched flower and, stamping with traditional stamps as well as using natural materials such as leaves and twigs. I've also used the die cut flowers from last month's team training and one of my alcohol-inked CD's as a base for the photo.

I really liked the old world feel of this image and the cluster of different flowers contained within the cup which I have tried to replicate on my page.

Hope you can come and join in with our challenge this month, we need more of you playing along with us and winning some great prizes.  Please remember we only accept combining our challenge with a sketch challenge.

Please upload your entry to the link tool on the LEFT by 11.55pm on March 31st.

We can't wait to see your pages.

Please come back on the 8th when we will announce our winners for February.
