SCRAPS OF ELEGANCE MARCH KIT.... BUTTERFLY DREAMS #3 Guest Designer

This layout was created for SCRAPS OF ELEGANCE. What an honor it has been to serve as guest designer for the month of March.  It seemed that the colors in the March kit were perfect to convey just how long and hot our Texas Summer was in 2011. We struggled through  record setting heat, drought, critters and a slab leak...all while planning a  party for my mother's ninetieth birthday. The most frightening thing that happened to us was the fire that started in our neighbor's backyard pool pump. Fortunately, I was home and heard the loud popping in time to run outside and find our fence and three trees engulfed in flames! I grabbed our garden hose and did my best to keep the situation under control until the fire department arrived.  We didn't think that our long, hot  Summer would ever end! 
Here are some flowers that I created using an EK Success punch called "Flower and Leaves".

I appreciate your comments.
