International fans are welcome to play along if they agree to pay shipping in the event of a win. Leave comments by Midnight Tuesday, August 6th. The winner will be announced on the Moxxie Blog on Wednesday, August 7th!


I had so much fun putting this layout together! My daughter gave me a small tomato plant for Mother's Day and I have managed to keep this plant alive for two whole months! I think this is a new record for me and definitely deserves to be remembered!

I fussy cut the floral watering can design from the Sprinkle A Day patterned paper and turned it on its side, the same way as I would if I was actually watering my little plant.


I embellished the watering can further by adding pastel flowers, floral vines and lots of green leaves.


I LOVE the Moxxie Cardstock Stickers! I mounted some stickers on patterned paper before adding them to my page to help set them off from the patterned paper background.

The next stop on the hop is Rhonda.
Here's the hop lineup in case you get lost along the way:
