I {heart} ur Smile - Using flowers on a manly LO

Hola everyone!

I've been so busy with work, time has just flown by.  In addition, I am sick with the Chikungunya Virus.  Everything hurts!

Trying to get my mind off how sick I feel, I sat in my scrap-room and decided to do an LO of some cute pictures of my brother.  I read on the Daily Digi that it's ok to use flowers on a "manly" LO, so I decided to scraplift one of Heddy's LO's for this layout.  Keep in mind that hers is a digital layout, while mine was done with paper.

For this layout I used American Crafts cardstock in white and green, DCWV "The Snapshot Stack" cardstock and thickers for the alpha.  The paint, brads and flowers are from my stash and the circle was done with the cap of a large can.

I love how the stamps and colors complement the picture.  And the flowers don't make it feminine, do they?

Hope you like my newest creation and it inspires you to create!

Peace and healthy days!
