Last minute challenge...

I've completed this layout yesterday for the April challenge at "Scrap The Girls". It was a numbers challenge. We had to use 5 buttons, 4 pattern papers, 3 flowers, 2 photos and 1 alphabet.
A close up of my crochet flowers. I love them! Will have to make more.
And a close up of my little polar bear that I cut on my Silhouette machine.
Hope you've all had a great National Scrapbooking day! Thank you for popping in! :)

Hi Marelize :-)

Love your layout - fab pictures, that bear is HUGE and so cute! I LOVE that bear you created on your Silhouette, how adorable! LOVE LOVE those crocheted flowers, I only recently found a love for these. That yellow ribbon/lace is devine! Thanks for the inspiration and Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Love your layout. You are clever crocheting those flowers. I had to get my husband to teach me to crochet because it was something I could never get the hang of. I managed to do a few circles but then it seemed to fall by the wayside. I keep meaning to take it up again and try some flowers.

Gorgeous LO Marelize! Those flowers are DIVINE!!! I am loving the crochet flowers that are appearing everywhere at the moment - I think I need to learn to crochet because I would love to be able to make them myself.
