The 3 C's

Hello Again my Scrappy Friends!! I have had a Great week so far enjoying my daughter and grandson while they are on spring break, and our long time friends from Indiana are down and we spent the day enjoying the sunshine!! 
My daughter is a school teacher and because she was on spring break I had a break from watching my little grandson. Which meant I have had a little more time to be in my scrap room!!! I'm LOVING IT:)
I have all ways wanted to combine challenges but it takes to much thought and with little time, for me I just can't even think about it. So I was so EXCITED to have a chance to try to do just that! 
I was able to combine THREE challenges!!! Yah for me!!! I really love the results too!
I used sketch from Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays #10.

Here's the Sketch-


Diana did a Great sketch and I was so excited to play along!
My kids names all begin with the letter C, so we would refer to them as The 3 C's.
Courtney, Cassie & Casey, the teachers just loved me because they would have one after the other and get the names confused especially Cassie & Casey who are only a year apart! I know your wondering if I ever said the wrong name & I can only think of once!!
Here's my LO!


The (Paper) Trail Makers was the next challenge I used! The challenge was to use 3 photos, 3 different papers, and the number 3 on your project! Well I think I was able to do that one! 

Here you can tell that I curled the grass to give it a 3-D effect, which was also mentioned in the challenge for @ The (paper) Trail Makers.
The third and last challenge I was able to do was over at Scrapbookers Anonyomous.
The challenge they have is to use seven or more pre-made flowers! I definitely accomplished that one I have  TWELVE Flowers!! 
I really loved how it turned out it's so fresh and spring like to me!


This is a close up of the metal words! They don't show up in the big picture very well and I have found they are hard to photograph. 

The Recipe:
Celebrate it Occasions- flowers
Jewell's
Ribbon
Metal Accents-By Maralla
Paper cardstock
DCWV the Green Stack
ATG

Hope you like my LO!!
