Week 161 - In Bloom

I'm Helene and it's time for me to host the challenge this week. I thought the theme In Bloom would be suitable for this time of the year :). 

So use a flower, use a bunch, but USE flowers. Paper with a flower pattern won't count! 

Our sponsors are

Letraset are offering one winner a set of Promarkers. Their website here is a source of inspiration and carries information about their various colouring mediums along with tutorials by many well known faces of the crafting world.


DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea.

Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, DigiDarla was born!

Working with Emilea on this project has been a wonderful blessing and has stretched both of us. Emilea is a busy teen with her passion for art and training our 2 horses, piano and violin lessons, and squeezing in high school classes somewhere in between! She is also the oldest daughter in a family of 11!

And here are the Design Team contributions:
