Bloom Where You Are Planted

This lovely image is an older image from Designed2Delight's called Teapot Cheer. The sentiment is from their Bloom Grow Dream set.

I was going for a kind of Mary Englebreit look. She is known for her red, yellows and black and I thought these colors would accent the blue teapot nicely.

I used Jillibean and SU! patterned papers and Nestibilites dies and EK Success border punch.

It's hard to see in the pictures, but I used Dimensional Magic on the cherries. I also made French knots in each of the flowers. I love how this looks IRL!
I made a yellow yo-yo and layered one of my crocheted flowers on top and a button on top of that.

I thought you might like to see some pictures of the beautiful BLOOMS going on at our farm.
Here are some blooms on our pear tree

Crab Apple Tree: This is the first time in 19 years that our crab apple tree didn't bloom on May Day! It's just now blooming. The blooms only last about 5 days and then they all fall off, but it is gorgeous while they are on. I even cut some and brought them inside.

Apple Trees: I love the pink tinted edges

Cherry Trees:



Some pretty wild flowers that grow up against the house: They are probably weeds, but they are pretty just the same

And the dandelions are even growing now! They will soon be killed.
Hope you have a lovely blooming day! Ü
