A closeup picture of a rose that had bloomed for the first time in our backyard on Mother's Day last May. My mom's name is Rose, so this is even more special! I had fun experimenting with blending modes while working on this layout! It is so cool that I was able to make use of Katie Pertiet's wonderful freebie goodies!

This was inspired by blkcow's beautiful layout, "Lilacs Endure" http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=157695.
