Flourishes and Flowers

I"m still trying my best to avoid all the work that I have to do around here.

I started a huge project in the kids' room on Friday. I needed to paint the walls and start on a few other fun decorations. We decided to go with a jungle/safari theme. So right now, the walls are a beige/tan's actually called Camel...which I thought was really appropriate. :)

At one point, I managed to fall off a chair, messed up my wrist, my ankle and had a huge goose egg. Now I'm just sore all over! But I finished painting the walls, so I was very happy. :)

So here is yet another attempt to stay safely at my desk and not get hurt anymore.

I used sketch #98 from Let's Capture These Sketches. This was such a pretty sketch, I am so glad I still had some Spring flower pictures to play with.

The flowers are from the stash and I just cut them up a bit and moved the petals around to try to match the flowers in the photo. I used some stems I had in the stash too. I also colored in some chipboard flourishes here and there for an added touch. This qualifies for the "add a flourish" challenge from Frosted Designs Fabulous Fridays. :)

I still don't want to work....
