Scrapbooking Family Photos and Botanical Gardens Photo

I have a couple of scrapbook pages to share of what I've been up to recently!
This is quite a photo heavy post, so grab a cuppa and enjoy the read/browse!
This is a page that uses lots of yummy goodies from The Stamp Spot store! I started off with a white piece of cardstock, and before doing anything else, I grabbed my red polka dot washi tape and laid some out along the edges, trying to make it as straight as possible. I then mounted my photo on white cardstock, and chose my patterned paper. I cut a scallop border using my MFT Die-namic using red cardstock. I then focused on my embellishments... 
This close up shows some more red polka dot washi tape and some turquoise spotted washi tape as well and put it on some white cardstock and die cut it through the big shot with my Mini-Pennant Die-Namic and stuck it down on top of an overlay. I popped a lovely tag from Chic Tags (Lovely Day) and a crochet flower, which I popped a button from FindingNana (Memory) on top of. 
This corner has a little tag with the details and another washi tape pennant. This page fits the requirements for White With 1 challenge, Red and Turquoise!
Now, onto the second page... 

I started off with some Kraft cardstock and layered patterned paper (My Minds Eye), and white cardstock on top of it, my photos were printed with a white border, so I didn't have to layer them up at all! Now onto the close-ups
This shows more pennants, made out of the patterned papers. I popped a sticker from Sn@p Life Label Stickers and I wrote my little bit of journalling inside. I popped a glitter brad, and plain coloured brads randomly around the label.  
This shows a couple of buttons, and another journalling spot from Sn@p Life 
Finally, this last photo shows another FindingNana button, this time from Happy Day and another button with a Kaisercraft bingo card, and another crochet flower. It also shows the doodling I did around the photos, and the title, which is simply Family. This page fits the challenge from KraftItUp which is turquoise, red, orange and white all on a Kraft background!
Thanks for popping around!
