I ended up making a second page to a Mother layout for my friend's album to finish the album. This is the page. The flower is cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The flower I left blank so that she could add her own journaling. The flourishes are from the Tie the Knot cartridge. The flowers are Prima flowers.

The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 was to use the flourish from Cindy Loo. I don't have that cartridge so I used Tie the Knot.

The 2nd challenge at Cooking with Cricut was the Colors of Fall. Th paper I used is from DCWV. I just LOVE their paper stacks.
