The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge # 56

The first challenge for March begins today at The Memory Nest.  And the sketch is one of those easy to interpret and versatile ones that you'll want to keep coming back to time and again.

For my page I wanted to feature a clump of daffodils that bloomed ridiculously early this year, so I decided to use the square photo element for my journalling. I often include pages about my garden as it progresses over the year, but I really needed to explain why these daffodils were so different from other years.

And because I couldn't ever remember daffodils blooming outside quite this early and risking the icy blasts we were sure to have at some point to catch them out I came up with the daft daffodil title.

I experimented with several different kinds of embellishments, but eventually settled on the simple trios of buttons as I liked the simple unfussy look of the page.

And so far those daft daffodils have got away with it and are still blooming prettilly.

Ppaers: Webster's Pages, dream in colour; ep, All about a boy; AC, Rise & Shine; Simple Stories, So Fancy
Alphas: AC thickers, Stroll; Simple Stories, So Rad
Embellishments: buttons from my stash 

So now it's over to you - what will you do with this sketch? I always love looking at all your pages as they pop up in The Memory Nest's gallery - it never ceases to amaze me how different they all look when they've come from the same starting point.

Thanks for looking today and spending some time with me here. Hope you enjoyed your visit.

And keep crafting!

  1. Such a pretty page!! Love the daffodils and the papers you chose to accent them.

  2. This is really so pretty! I love the subtle design of the BG paper peeking through. The colorful (top layer) PP and the buttons! I used to be a huge button freak and I got away from it and just started back using them again!
