SFYTT + Bloom and Grow

Very short on words tonight; it's the last two 'business days' before I start my new job and I'm doing a garage sale - oh, WHAT WAS I THINKING?  I really dislike garage sales...but we'll finish up tomorrow; then a basketball tournament this weekend and then life changes come Monday, May 2.  Nervous, anxious, excited...oh, all those emotions!

OK, moving on - I so wanted to participate in Jen's Sketch For You To Try; her sketches always rock and I only had a few more days to get in on the fun!

Inside and 3D view
I used the new Floral Circle Dies from Verve Visual with a paperback book; I stamped each paperback book layer with the various floral images from Bloom and Grow in either PTI Ocean Tide or Aqua Mist; mounted them all together and placed a gorgeous lush gem in the center.  I placed the paperback book flower on a PTI Ocean Tide doily - LOVE these new doilies (new to me)!  :D

The DP is all from MME; a bit of sewing, more lush gems and the rest is straight forward.

TFL; hope you have a GREAT weekend!

...spring, flowers, doilies and hope...Hugs, ~M.
