To make the matching pop-up flowers, I first scanned the background paper. Then I cropped around the flowers and sized them slightly smaller than the original. I electronically pasted the flowers onto an inexpensive cardstock and printed them. I then used my scissors to cut around the flowers, added a button center and sewed them to my page. With hybrid scrapbooking, anything is possible!
Here are 2 old layouts with pictures from the same restaurant. It's a special place to go!

While I live in the hills of West Virginia, we have had an unusually mild winter. I have no complaints. When it snowed last Saturday morning, I took the opportunity to get out and take a few pictures. 2 of the pictures were taken on our health sciences center campus (I post these with my weekly intranet menu). The glimpse of the flag was on our home deck.

"Even on the darkest of winter's days, my love for you grows like the flowers of your summer garden. In the midst of gloom, you make me bloom." I feel the same about him.

"Two furry faced primates study each other." Como Zoo 2011
Thanks to Michelle for getting Greg's camera to take the picture of him and the curious monkey studying each other at the zoo's glass enclosure. Going to the zoo is one of their favorite activities.
The monkey had such lovely facial markings. I wanted to find some black and white fur to use on my layout.
Sugar said "no way"!
So I used black and white netting from food packaging:
Here's one more picture of Greg at the Minnesota Zoo photographing a monkey last summer:
Check out the fur on these monkeys!
