    A new month, a new challenge and a winner for June.

    For this month's challenge you need to scrap a heritage photo, or any photo older than ten years, and add some flowers to your layout. You must use at least 75% products by Lynn Grieveson, templates count 15%.

    Most of her kits include flowers so check your stash. I love adding flowers into my layouts, because I love flowers and I add them even to all guy layouts, because I am making them and I am a girl. Your layout needs to be new and needs to meet The Lilypad gallery requirements to be posted there.

    My layout used: Mariko kit, Alphabetti Brushes, Hello Happy Templates and Fancy Floral.


    For this challenge you have from today, the 1st of July until 31st of July midnight EDT to create a new layout, post it to Lynn Grieveson's gallery, here at the Lilypad and to leave a comment on this thread with a link to your layout so that we can check it out, leave you some love and put you in the running to win a $10 voucher to Lynn Grieveson Design's store at The Lilypad. Winner will be chosen by Lynn.

    I rarely use flowers, but it was perfect for my Grandmother's flower garden!

    Photo from 1908 or so
    This is my great Grandmother Aura. Born in 1891, very creative and way before her time! She died when I was 13, in 1984.
    On the back of this photo is written "Voted the prettiest girl at Ferris State"
    I can imagine how long her hair was!!

    Not being a flower lover, I waffled on doing this one but in the end I wanted to have a go!

    Thanks for the flower sale, Lynn! I love your kits! This photo was taken about 1958. I wanted to keep the journaling subtle, so it may be hard to read. This is what it says:
    This picture always makes me a bit nostalgic. I found it in my sister Deanna’s pictures after she passed away. This is my oldest sister with our parents. She passed away at the young age of 43 due to complications from surgery. When I first found this photo, I sat and cried. I miss them all so much. I love that this photo shows them walking away together - “into the sunset” so to speak. It makes me feel a bit better to think of them like this - holding hands and just being together.
