123 Challenge - September challenge

 Hello crafty friends - hope you had a lovely weekend ☺  Last week I made some time to do the challenge over at the 123 Challenge Blog - I loved the look of their latest challenge - fun, pretty and pink and I've even managed that on a boys page ☺
Here is their September challenge:

 

COLOUR: PINK
WORD: SWEET
TECHNIQUE: FLORALS

 ... and here is my take on the challenge ....

 I had recently taken these photo's of my youngest picking some strawberries from our garden.  They fit in well with the challenge requirements.
I've used all-sorts from my stash - some pop up flower by Sassafrss (older line), Glitz Papers and some embellishments from my collection. ☺
Here are some close-up's:
 A cluster of flowers - I still had some of these paper foldies by Sassafrass - oh they were great and I'm glad I got to use them on this page.
 Lots of pink tucked into the page ☺
And the title of course .... sweet strawberries ....... using some little Glitz letters.

Check out the 123 challenge blog - they would love to have more participants for their challenges otherwise they may be closing it down ..... that would be a shame :(

Thanks so much for coming by to visit ♥

What a fab page and you did well using the criteria for a boy's page. Love the details and how proud does he look with his strawberries? Very cute.
