June Magic-in grids

I wanted a page for my 2013 album documenting the garden.....mine is very much an early summer garden....so June is the perfect time to document it.
One of Jennifer's prompts last week was to use grids......which I do enjoy doing......and then this popped up as this week's CSI 77 Challenge
the perfect colours for a garden page......so a combination of the two challenges seemed appropriate.
I printed some small copies of the photos I posted last Tuesday.
I used 5 photos and made 4 embellishment and journaling blocks

listed the flowers in the photos
I also went a bit mad with the flower embellishments.....but if you can't go overboard with flowers on a garden page....when can you??

Doesn't look "overboard" to me at all! Great job.

No, you definitely can't. The flowers add that magic touch I think

I don't think you've gone overboard either. There's no such thing as too many flowers.

I love the gridwork and the embellies (all of them) are what make it special :)

This is great - I like the grid design and all those flowers are perfect on this page! I personally think you just can't use too many flowers! LOL

Perfect colors and cute embellies! I really want to get some scrapping done, but don't know where I'll find the time. I'm very consumed right now with finishing the big garage purge and clean-up.

Your beautiful garden definitely deserved a layout, and it's lovely indeed!

What a great layout :)

I love your layout. You've given me an idea with how you cropped your photos. They look about the size of the journaling cards from Project Life!
