Amy's Bits & Pieces: Flowers Flowers Flowers!!

Many of you know by now that I have been purging my stash, in a big way. My feeling with flowers has always been that there's no way I can have too many.... well I was wrong, as evidenced by drawers in my scrap-space overflowing with them. I can and DO have too many, so many in fact that half the time I can't find what I'm looking for. Plus there's always cool new ways to make your own, as well as all the beautiful new designs they keep bringing into the stores! What's a girl to do to make room for the new? Something that I think us scrappers do best, and that is share the wealth :) Pictured below are all the flowers I've decided that I can do without... and let me tell you, this was not easy. I kept taking some out thinking "surely I'll use these... and these.... and definitely these..." Finally I just threw them all back on the pile, took the photo and got this posted before I could change my mind! Manufacturers include Petaloo, Prima, Bella Blvd., American Crafts, Kaisercraft, Bazzil, and so many more. I didn't count them, but I know there's well over a hundred flowers shown here! I'm even going to throw in a few of my own handmade flowers. If you'd like a chance to welcome these to your own stash, simply leave a comment on this post and follow my blog if you don't already. This giveaway will end with a random winner drawn on October 1st. Good luck :)
