In the Garden: Non-Winning Artisan Award Entry #6


First off, let me say…not a great photo,. I know! But what do you do? This project is no longer around my house to re-photo so this is what’cha get!

This is the second of my three non-winning Artisan Award scrapbook pages. I loved it. I used the new Paisley Prints designer paper to make a garden themed page all about my daughter.

What’s fun about this page is the two photos are actually on the front of a large cardstock pouch that I made and inside is Avery’s “garden diary” where she made notes about her garden and a plot map of where things were planted. You just pull out the ribbon/eyelet tabs to see them.

Another fun element on this page are the garden tools. All made by me!

Thanks for visiting today! Don’t forget to check back over the next few days for some great challenges!
