Mood Board Monday | Flowers

Hi everyone,

I've decided to participate in Mood Board Monday over at Life as we know it this week, even though the theme is "flowers", and generally I'm not a flower sort of person :P

I started out looking at mainly photos of what I would consider to be wedding themed flowers and then moved on to looking at lots of different crafty "flower" themed projects including, crochet (did you know I'm learning to crochet and participating in the crochet along over at ASWC at the moment), paper flowers, flower washi tape, pretty flower nail polish and embroidery flowers (as I will be participating in another swap soon...this one is a "hoop art" swap - if your interested head over here to join - so looking at all the lovely embroidery designs was good research ;D ).

By the time I had finished, I realised flowers weren't that bad and there were lots of flower themed items that I LOVED and couldn't decide Which items to share in my mood your getting 3 :P
