The photo's are from a vacation here in Holland a few years ago when we still had the boat. While floating down 'de Veht' A well known place for booties' over here. I managed to take these great photo's. Hence the title 'REMEMBER' These are also my DH Fran's fav flowers. Therefore, we have many in the front garden ( fellow kiwi's would know....these grow like weeds in New Zealand. I have had them as hedges in my garden when living there...years ago!)
This is a take from a PRIMAMARKETING sketch.
The paper screamed soft flowers....of course I had no problem accommodating the request!
It just kept growing, and growing, and growing...and growing!  Just love to scrap Prima papers! I have to do more of it....but I have a problem cutting into these dream papers...crazy I know!
The circle is crocheted on the edge and framed with a double layer of a rich pleated boarder, made with a MARTHA STEWART deep edge punch.

 Tags are made with the TIM HOLTZ dies from SIZZIX, as are also the swirls. The title is stamped with a stamp from Prima, brought out with UNITY. Stamped with STAZON , Embossed with clear powder and then colored in with a fine paint brush with GLIMMER MIST.  Small roses are from PRIMA and butterfly's from MARTHA STEWART. They are all  finished with GLIMMER GLAM.

Thank you Pauline for the tip with puffy paint to give the swirls the texture here. I just love it.  ( A few 'scrappie gals' got together last month for a day...Gerry, Pauline, Romy, Corina, Ingrid and myself....The day was too short of course! I picked this up that day...looking forward to the next one.)  Don't you just fall in love all over again with these adorable roses with glitter glass?From Prima of course.  Just love these soft stash is getting low. so I have to get stocked up again....oh...oh....oh...what a bother! I will just have to go shop till I drop again....I wonder where I can do this....take a guess!

PN: I know I had promised to post a LO. WS. I have not forgotten......I just have not had the time due to Frans health and other commitments.....I will get one posted after I get settled back in after our vacation later this month.....before the end of the year....promise!..... We are planning the South of France....a cute little cottage in the middle of no where.....( in the wop wop's).....can't take any scrap gear though, but I will be taking my embroidery work with me....I want to finish my vacation bear. I am crazy quilting a bear. I started it a few years ago....A real get round to it!....And Frans has invested in a new camera, what better way to learn how it works....vacation!
Thats it for now...have a wonderful day and try to put some scrap into it!
Love Susan oxoxoxox


  1. this is exquisite Susan.. i adore all the flowers and i feel quite drawn in by the beauty of it this!!

  2. WOW...this is stunning. The crocheted edge and pleated paper is soooo beautiful! Love every detail!!!

  3. Hola Susan: me encantan sus trabajos llenos de flores y de vida. Yo no me atrevo a usar tanto adorno, aún no se. Aquí hay poco material, cada vez más.
    Me ha gustado mucho el LO de su hermana, dígale que tenga fe, que el cáncer se puede combatir y que hay más esperanzas día a día. Espero que no tenga problemas, rezaré por ella.
    Voy a tratar de hacer alguna página con sus plantillas, ya la enseñaré.
    Un saludo desde España.

  4. Hoi Susan!
    Geweldige LO is dit, je raakt niet uitgekeken.
    Gehaakt randje is heel mooi en vooral bovenop de dubbel geponste rand... WAT EEN IDEE! :)
    Prachtig schilderijtje!
