Challenge at Inspiration Avenue

How Does Your Garden Grow?
This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue was right up my alley. 
The garden alley, that is! Gardening is one of my passions, 
so the problem was not what to choose, 
but how to choose from so many ideas.

I happened to be working on a new collage sheet for my Etsy shop
so I thought for a change I would use a collage sheet
for the challenge. Saved me some time, although
this sheet ended up being way more involved than I originally thought.
But isn't that always the way it goes?

This sheet is available in my Etsy shop.
All of the flower photos are from my garden,
either this year or last. They've been altered in Photoshop.

There are quite a few entries for the challenge
already posted at Inspiration Avenue!
Take a look!

If you have time to enter (by noon on Sunday June 6),
you will be entered in the Monthly Giveaway
at Inspiration Avenue! Check the blog for details.

  3. Gorgeous, I love all the colors and of course, you know how I feel about flowers:)

  4. Beautiful! I love butterflies and flowers ... and you've captured both in such a great way!

  5. Wouldn't these be perfect printed out as stickers...would look lovely pasted on a greeting card envelope. I can't believe the magic you can do...growing, photographing and then God knows what on the can't buy anything like this at Micheal's.

  7. What a gift your garden is-AMAZING that you actually experienced these beautiful colors in your OWN GARDEN!

  8. What a gorgeous selection of images Maggie and how what an incredible garden you must!♥

  9. Hi Maggie,
    Wow I'm so jealous..all of these flowers are from your garden!
    The sheet is beautiful and I know how you feel about things turning out to be more work then you originally thought. That is the way it goes.
    I did not make the deadline for this weeks challenge but I did use the theme for one of my journal pages. Oh well.:)
    Hugs and have a great week.


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
