New challenge week at TPV!

It's week 29 at The Paper Variety!! Thanks for joining us
for another great challenge.. we're so glad to have you back! :)

A few weeks ago we asked you for challenge ideas and we received so many great and creative suggestions. This week we offer a challenge idea brought to you by Tiffany! Tiffany expressed she'd like to see a TPV challenge using flowers and we all agree! Last week we were all about rain showers, now we bring you the flowers :)

This week we have a sponsor that you all know :) She is our sweet Team B designer, Patti! Patti is offering this awesome kit from Citrus Tree Studio full of beautiful American Crafts paper, embellishments, and so much more! Thanks so much, Patti!! :)

And here is my favorite part of our weekly challenge posts, when I feature the fabulous TPV Designers with their gorgeous examples to inspire you!

."No Place Like Home". I feel blessed to live in a beautiful island with a year round warm climate. As a mother of two handsome boys, I consider me a "boy scrapper", but I love to create "travel" and "me" layouts as a big excuse to use flowers. I love to use handmade and store-bought flowers as in this layout. I used an expired sketch from Sketchy Thursdays

This page didn't turn out anything like I had planned! In my head there were flowers all over! But the more I added, the more it took away from my cute little Grandma, so I took it all off and just kept the one BIG flower for oomph!

I made a card with handmade flowers. I used a Stampavie's stamp and my copics.

Love flower! I decided to use bunch of flowers for this week challenge, what a fun challenge! :)


Our Guest Designer, Tiffany!


I created a sweet "thank you" card using fussy-cut paper flowers. All of my supplies came from the April kit at Artful Delight :)
