My Nana's Rose Garden

Rose Garden

My Nana had a beautiful Rose garden, so this is in honor of that garden… the picture is of my Mom and her brother ( Lew) and my Nana… tending to the garden… picking the roses… and making pretties… 

The page… oh what fun I had making it…  the background paper I made with twinkling H20’s… and then the orange and peach sheet I created with some distress inks with perfect pearls…  how yummy…  then I used a grid to make the sewing holes… as this is challenge for Simon Says stamp and show challenge…   

The three circles on the right are from the top… Just Rite, and the  next one is also a Just Rite circle too… then the frame is a Spellbinder… which I cut out the center to make the frame…  

The flowers… I used the tattered floral die cut… Tim Holtz’s… and then spritzed with my mini misters… using distress inks and perfect pearls…  they match the papers… I love it… 

The butterfly… I used the Spellbinder fancy of flight… butterfly and then layer underneath it with some paper that I made with my mini misters again… oh my goodness…. Have I told you that I LOVE these things???? LOL… 

Hope you have a fun day…
Create all you can…
And totally enjoy it all..

Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit… wish I could stop by yours… I need to be able to get out to see all that is going on in the blog world… hopefully someday we will get dsl… or some thing that is faster than two tin cans with a string… (did you ever try that when you were a kid..??? I did and it didn’t work… still doesn’t!!! ) 

Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie


  1. Hi Bonnie! I love your page. The tribute to your Nana's rose garden. It's lovely! The background you created with the H2Os ... it! I have the Fanciful Flight Butterfly die cut and love it. Such a beautiful, lacey butterfly. Perfect on your page. Your flowers, other die cuts and all the colors you used in the mini misters...beautiful! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
