The layout for these pages have been inspired both by the photos & of course the Stamp Set - Inspired by Nature. I think this set is perfect for these photos without taking away from the photos. I love to scrap my photos, while at the same time not have the photo/s become lost on the page.

I matted my photo onto Crumb Cake & then onto Garden Green Cardstock. I inked my image with Crumb Cake Ink & radomly stamped around Very Vanilla Cardstock. I tried to bring the weeds from the photo onto the page.
Wanting to add a little bit of green & the colour of the T-Shirt Amber is wearing, I decided to ink the flower image using Garden Green, So Saffron & Pacific PointSU Markers & stamp over the top of the reeds. I repeated this step twice. I then applied Crystal Effects to the flowers so that the colours would pop out more.
Once the Crystal Effects had dried, I adhered my photo to the page.
Using my Basic Black SU Marker, I wrote onto a scrap piece of Vanilla Vanilla, punched out using my Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Pacific Point Cardstock, which had been punched with my Scallop Oval Punch.
I punched a hole either side of the oval with my Handheld Punch & thread a piece of Linen Thread through either side. I think this blends in well with the whole scrub theme.

This page was really very easy & took all of about 5 minutes.
I matted my photo onto Crumb Cake & then to Marina Mist Cardstock.
I stamped my reeds onto Very Vanilla Cardstock with Crumb Cake Ink. I again inked my flower image with Pacific Point, Garden Green & So Saffron SU Markers & stamped them onto the page. I applied Crystal Effects to the flowers & set aside to dry.
I adhered my photo the centre of the page & with my SU Basic Black Marker, wrote a little bit of "What's Happening"
