Pretty as a Postcard and a Winner!

I'm having fun being a guest designer over at Lasting Memories!  Last week, it was really fun to see the summer-themed mini albums that were created for the challenge!  As promised, there is a winner of a $25 Close To My Heart gift certificate from me - and you'll find out who that is at the bottom of this post.  First, I want to tell you about the challenge for this week.
Have you ever worked with mosaic patterns on your layouts?  Well, that is the challenge this week.  I brought out some of my flower pictures for this one.

Like looking through a window, right?  I love this technique!

This is a mixture of Authentique (Gifted) and Lily Bee (Happily Lost).  Truly, it was the only pinkish paper I had in the house, and I love it!  This Lily Bee has a little bit of a warm tone, and that is exactly why I have it. 

What can you come up with for this challenge?  I'd love to see it!  Okay, now I need to get to the winner for last week's summer-themed mini album.  I will tell you that everyone that entered the challenge made gorgeous albums!  There is a lot of talent out there!!  The winner on my blog is Theresa!!!  Stop by her blog - even the background will make you happy!

Theresa, e-mail me at to claim your gift certificate!

This is gorgeous. I really think making your flower pictures into mosaic tiles makes them pop so much more. The color combos are beautiful.
I would be honored if you came to see me

Wow - very pretty! I always love how mosaic's turn out looking, just not the creation process. Always gives me fits (however, it is easier now that I started using repositionable adhesive LOL)
