Lasting Memories weekly layout challenge--FLOWERS!!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's time for another challenge from Lasting Memories!  This week, we're asking you to include flowers SOMEWHERE on your layout.  Here's my take for this week:

These are some of my favorite pictures from my second pregnancy!  My husband was deployed to Iraq at the time, and I thought these would be a wonderful surprise for him, since he couldn't be there for the end of the pregnancy.

My background paper is a double-sided paper from K & Co.'s Marine Corps paper pack; I used a piece of cardstock found in my stash to mat the photos.  The rhinestone flowers are from Recollections and are ones I received in a package from a friend in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin'.  The b's are Thickers, and the rest of the letters are from some other letter stickers I found in my stash.  (I'll edit the post later with specifics.)

I hope you'll choose to join in our challenge this week!  The flowers can be ANYWHERE on your layout--background paper, embellishments, pictures, ANYTHING!!  Be sure to link up your layout post before next Saturday, May 28.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!

How neat Ashley! I never did this with my 2 kiddos... just side view pics in ugly maternity clothes. What a treasure!! And a great way to show how we can use flowers in all kinds of ways!!

Very pretty layout Ashley. I'm glad you got your mojo back. I love how the mats make the photos pop off the blue background.

I love this and wish I had of done this with my kids. I have some side views, but that's it. This is beautiful and what a treasure to have.

ha, what an awesome idea. This layout is absolutely wonderful. I also wished I had done something like this when I was pregnant.
I love it

What a wonderful memory! You get to tell your son, you took pics from the very beginning.
