Begonias

I thought it would be nice for a change to do a garden layout!  It's been such a cold winter, it got me to thinking about my flower gardens, and so wishing Spring was here!
I had purchased the January sweet Kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop and the colors in the Sassafrass Lass and Crate Paper were the perfect compliment for my photos! They have a challenge to use a quilt look on your layout.  I cut some 2 x 2 squares, distressed  and inked the edges and then crumpled them to mimic the crumpled look of the background paper.
Here are a few close ups:


I was watching the weather forecast last night and it looks like we are in for some warmer weather.  The weekend temps should be in the 40's and the beginning of next week in the 50's!   How many more days till Spring???
