Until next week's giveaway - thanks to all who submitted! It was fun to find out which flowers are your favorite!

Michelle Lanning and Caroline Ikeji are finishing off this week with gorgeous layouts and cards:

  Michelle Supplies: 12x12 Kraft Cardstock (71464) - AC Cardstock, Bliss Paper (35395) - Hello Sunshine, Glee Paper (35402) - Hello Sunshine, Brilliance Paper (35415) - Hello Sunshine, Spree Paper (35400) - Hello Sunshine, Sunset Blush (53182) - Thickers, Daylight (78048) - Details, Sunbeam (72011) - Delights, Sunshine (72012) - Delights, Tenderness (78034) - Details

Michelle says, "I had to scrap this of my daughter being silly. She grabbed some flowers that were on the kitchen table and asked me to take some photos. Of course I did! I added some handmade flowers to go with the pre-made embellishments. I think the mixture of the two makes the layout more interesting and definitely gives it more texture!"

ACsmilecard Supplies: Breezy Paper (35406) - Hello Sunshine, 5x7 White (71346) - Cards & Envelopes, Sunrise Borders (53185) - Thickers, Sunbeam (72011) - Delights, Sunshine (72012) - Delights

Caroline says, "I love butterflies and flowers - they are the perfect spring motif! I wanted to find a spring-ish photo to go along with this theme, so I dug through my photos and realized I never scrapped this one from my NYC trip last spring. I pulled out all the lovely flower and butterfly accents from the Hello Sunshine line and used lots of them on this page! I wanted to create a fresh, happy, and springy feel."

Thanksac Supplies: Breezy Paper (35406) - Hello Sunshine, Bliss Paper (35395) - Hello Sunshine, Blithe Paper (35416) - Hello Sunshine, Hello Sunshine Borders (53185) - Thickers, Hello Sunshine Metal Rimmed Decorative Tags (85546) - Bits, Hello Sunshine Pearl Brads (85545) - Elements

"I started with the 'Thanks"'metal rimmed Bits tag - loved the cute little floral pattern on it. I wanted to create a stream of flowers and butterflies across the center of the card, so I combined the tag with a Details flower, and a flower and butterfly cut from the Breezy paper."

That's a wrap on this week! Usually we don't have posts on Saturdays, but we had to make an exception for tomorrow - Pooi is going to teach us how to make her Mixtape flowers! So come back at 9am PST so you'll have all day to get crafty!
