Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Hello and welcome!  Today is the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop and the theme for the Hop is to either use the color green or "green" materials on your TE project.  Well I decided to use some of the pretty supplies from my TE Key Ingredients Kit for this month and the TE stamp set Discover Your Wings to create a scrapbook page for my daughter using the color green with brown.
I started out with a sheet of the 8 1/2" x 11" brown cardstock from the kit and stamped the silhouette of the flower image from the Discover Your Wings set along the bottom of the page.  Then I used pieces of the green cardstock and added them vertically down the right side of the page and stamped the flowers again in green on the bottom piece.  I took the green pattern 6"x 6" piece and adhered it an inch from the upper right corner, then cut out a scallop border using my TE Medium Scallop Border Die and adhered it to the bottom of the brown Lush My Mind's Eye designer paper that comes in the Kit and adhered that to the middle right section of my page.  Then came the fun part of adding the details like the ribbon, decorative brad with flower, butterflies, word tags and cool Lush brown chip board letters that are available as an add on to this month's TE Key Ingredients Kit (click below for a close up view).

SHUT UP. I can't decide if I have a major girl-crush on you because you are so freakin' awesome or if I hate you a little because you are so freakin' awesome. ;-) This is amazing. Seriously.
