Speedy's Friends and Crazy4Challenges

Angela was our hostess for the Crazy4Challenges this month, and for this last challenge of the month, she asked us to use flowers as spring is around the corner.  I used this image from Innovative Stamp Creations for my flower.  The layout developed a life of its own -- the results being nothing like my intention.

Now be sure to visit the Crazy4Challenges Blog to see the garden of delight waiting there for you.

The challenge for Speedy's Friends this week was to use an image of something you could eat.  Well,  that somewhat limited the images I could use, but I went with this egg image from the Spring has Sprung set recently released by Mark's Finest Papers.

You must take a moment to visit the Speedy's Blog post to see the delicious samples made by the rest of this fab team.
