love for Austin

Back in November we got to take a family trip to Austin, TX for Sarah's level 5 State gymnastics meet.

We'd never been to Austin, so we were excited for our little adventure.

Because Sarah didn't compete until later in the day we decided to do a little bit of sightseeing in the morning on the day of her meet. We went to the State Capitol builidng, had a tour of the inside and the grounds and also visited a Texas history museum closeby. It was perfect because Sarah had been studying Texas history. Being able to tour the capitol and museum were a lot of fun than just reading about the events in a history book.

My project for Noel Mignon this week features a few pictures from that trip:

This layout features the Heart of Gold kit from Noel Mignon and this week's challenge was to use flowers on our project. I am typically not a very flowery person and I struggle to use flowers on pages without them looking too gaudy but I liked these little monochromatic jeweled flowers in the February kit. 

I used a variety of papers on this page, some florals to go with the week's challenge and others to ground the page and give more variety. I tucked a chipboard frame under the corner of one of the pictures, tucked a bow under the edge of the flowers and added a few gold enamel stars around the page. 

Do you enjoy using flowers on your project? 

Have a great weekend!
