Giveaway, Challenges & Peachy Keen !!!

Hi Everyone !!! Today (Friday) is my Birthday so I wanted to post something dear to me.....LOL One of my kids of course !!! And a Happy Birthday giveaway for you !!
I've been really trying to catch up on my kids scrapbooks these past few months... I start a new scrapbook every year on their birthday so when they leave home they will have 18 books to take with them LOL !!!
I'm so excited to be up to December of 2011. As I was scrapping, I saw this photo and it reminded me of the current photo challenge for Peachy Keen, which is of a peacock feather, and I knew this would be perfect !!! I was inspired by a layout my friend did. She pointed me in the direction of a sketch blog and I fell in Love with May's sketch !!! She got it from My Creative Sketches !!!
On this 12x12 layout.....
I used Peachy Keen Funny Flowers for the big flower with the face on it, and the cute stamped butterfly up on the banner piece! I used PK-564 Teamwork for the sentiment.



I also used a Jaded Blossom flag die, the Art Philosophy Circut cart and yummy Echo Park paper.
This is one of my favorite sentiments....it always reminds me of my two little girls named after flowers. In the picture is my daughter Lily and my youngest is Poppy~






So this is an entry for the My Creative Sketches and of course Peachy Keen !!

How about a Birthday giveaway ???
