Find Your Happy Place to Plant & Bloom

I purchased this fabulous digi image by Michelle Perkett Studios ages ago because I love the sentiment and think the image is fantastic!!  At the time I purchased it I always new I wanted to use it for a gardening journal or journal of some sort so when I saw that the challenge over at the Michelle Perkett Challenge Blog was "Anything but a Card" I jumped at the chance to make my journal:
I used a blank journal that I had picked up in a bargain bin at Michaels awhile back and thought that the image would work perfectly with the Basic Grey Green at Heart design paper I've been hoarding.  I don't know why I do that.....I mean I bought it to use it, right??  I mean WHO DOES THAT???   I can't be the only one :)

I coloured this fantastic image called "Mary, Mary" with copics and then added some Making Memories Buttons and binder clips to use as page markers.  The pretty flower is by Petaloo.  I think this will make the perfect gift for a gardener I know :)

Will also be entering in the following challenges:
-Phindy's Place Challenge #63 Buttons
-Charisma Cardz Challenge 27 - All about Flowers
-Paper Take Weekly - Anything goes with option of buttons

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I'm just getting over the flu and still don't feel 100% so I'm off to go back to bed for awhile.  Check back tomorrow for the latest Critter Sketch Challenge!
