"Earth laughs in flowers" a quote I love from Ralph Waldo Emerson and it certainly rings true with the fabulously cheerful flower digis from The Octopode Factory and the challenge this week is all about the flowers!!

I decided that my craft room needed cheering up and with that in mind, I decorated a mini watering can I had picked up during one of our junking days out.  I had already painted it with several coats of white acrylic craft paint which made it easy to modpodge the coloured images on.

I printed out each large flower twice (mirrored them) and stuck them together with a straw for the stem.  One mini bouquet and best of all, no pollen!!!  The bees  and bugs are also Octopode digis, as is the grass :)

Just love this little guy!

I would like to enter this into the  handmade flowers challenge at Crafting for all seasons and the flowers challenge at Little Darlings and also at scrapalicioususa .

Thanks for popping in and hope your weekend is off to a great start :)
