Peace Love Garden . . . for ReneaBouquets!

Good Morning everyone!  TGIF!  I am happy that Friday has finally arrived and am looking forward to the weekend.  We are supposed to have beautiful, fall weather this weekend.  I can't wait to have some down time and to spend it with my family!  

Today I would like to share a layout that I made for ReneaBouquets guest design team:

I used her beautiful hand-made flowers, and I also purchased Ranger's texture paste, the Tim Holtz burlap stencil, the gorgeous pink lace, and the pink ribbon surrounding the photo in her store. 

Here are the links:

And you can also see more of Renea's amazing work at her blog here!

Here are some close ups of my title and different views of my layout.  Check out the gorgeous hand-made flowers, obviously made with tender-loving care!

I also promised more photos of my friends' beautiful garden as follows:

Welcome to the garden:

Love and peace are felt here:

I enjoyed spending time photographing their garden so much.  As you can see, it has amazing raised beds and it is surrounded by a gorgeous antique, white-picket fence.  The garden is filled with so many cool details like the old tricycle!  I delighted in the serenity and love that I felt there.  

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my walk through the garden as much as I did!  Have a great weekend everyone.
