Summer Scrapping

My Creative Scrapbook was having a Summer Challenge where you had to show some of the layouts you have completed over the summer.  Sounds simple enough.  I didn't have anything to enter for the vacations that we took this summer so I wanted to create a new one.
Unfortunately,  I have been having problems uploading my images to the site.  It either errors out completely or I can't figure out the correct way to link the image to the post.  Nonetheless, I did not end up entering the LO after all but figured I would post it on here anyway.

First Blog

My name is Sylvia.  I am a certified scrap-a-holic.  I have been scrapbooking since about March 2010.  I have quickly become obsessed and want to scrapbook everything.  On several scrapbooking sites there are challenges available to everyone and I decided I'm gonna go ahead and try my hand at it. The first one that I entered was the Everyday Scrapper's flourish challenge.

The challenge is to use a flourish somewhere in the LO.  The picture is of my darling daughter's dance recital.  The papers are Tim Holtz and the flower and flourish are Prima.  I used the retro flower punch for the smaller flowers and used beads for the centers.
