Rose Garden

When I returned home from our vacation,  a RAK (random act of kindness) package from one of my sweet sisters in Christ was waiting for me.  I opened it to discover all kinds of wonderful goodies, including lots of flowers. I love flowers, in fact I have quite the collection of them :),  but I don't get to use them as often as I'd like.  As soon as I saw the flowers,  I knew I wanted to use them on a page,  so I looked through my vacation photos and found the perfect of my son and nieces taken at the Exposition Park Rose Garden in Los Angeles, CA. 

I added some glimmer mist and stickles to the flowers to really make them sparkle and I added some Websters Pages trim under the flower on the left for a different look.
