May SOTM Blog Hop

I have said it many times though out this year - where did the month go???  It is already May 1st!  Happy May Day!  We have had a beautiful spring here  in Tampa, FL. and I have been working on my flower bed creating a butterfly garden.  Later on this week I will share some pictures from my garden.  

But this month's stamp set, reminds me of the late summer days when the sunflowers are all in bloom.  So if you have been hopping along with everyone, then you have arrived from Melinda's Blog where you have checked out her beautiful design.  I am ready for the photos and have purchased my package of sunflower seeds to plant in my backyard this week. 
Doesn't this picture from CTMH inspire to plant some sunflowers in your garden as well?! 

 Here is my layout in which I combined the colors of Pemberley with the honey and sunflower inks to create my sunflowers.  The layout is from the Travel Sketches book by Scrapbook Generations but if you would like to check out their Sketch Support Blog click here.

I hope my layout inspires you to start your own sunflower garden (OK - mine will be very small! - enough for 5 pictures!)  Now it is off to Nikka's Blog to find another bit of inspiration!
