Sunbursts and flourishes

In the last Scrapbooking Memories magazine, Gail Lindner wrote an article about creating sunbursts.  She made it look so easy and fun, I thought I'd have a go.  I eliminated the stitching step (too lazy ran out of time to get the sewing machine out).  Instead, I distressed the edges to create some texture.

I played along with the March challenge at Flourish With A Bling which was to create a "Love" themed layout.

You make me happy:

Another page with a large title :-).  It's great to use some thickers for a change!

That's all for now ... Thanks for visiting :-). 

PS.  Have you created a page using a tutorial lately?  Let me know, I'd love to see it :D :D
