A Paper Rose and a Layout to share

I just created this rose from a scrap of paper, a pair of scalloped edged scissors and some stickles. I have to give credit to roxycar1 on Youtube though. She makes fantastic flowers out of paper, ribbon, lace, etc. Anyway, as part of the wonderful Design Team over at Creative Scrapbooking Divas, I'm going to use this as a small tutorial on March 28th. Once I share it there, I'll post the directions here. I changed how I created this rose a little differently than roxycar, but it's close.
And also on Creative Scrapbooking Divas, I've started a new group--Book of Me. Every two weeks, I'll be giving a challenge to inspire members to get their BOM's started and/or completed! The first challenge was to do an intro/dedication page. This is a photo of me from about 5 years ago but I haven't changed much. This was started at a class I took at my lss but it was plain, so I added the green strip with journaling and the flower embellies.
Well, I'm off to work, but wanted to make a quick post about some recent projects. Thanks for looking!

The rose is beautiful Lori. I love paper flowers of all kinds. Did I miss the link to the U-tube directions? Book of Me-I have wanted to do something like that for a long time. I love your opening page. I need to consider making one for my kids..when I'm gone from this world. My Mom died when she was young (58) and I was too young (28) to ask her all the things I wish I had known about her. Great idea to do this book. Have a nice weekend!
