I love Lilac and a few years ago I planted one in my garden and now it's full of gorgeously scented purple blooms. It was also one of my dear mum's favourite flowers and I remember lilac trees in the garden when I was growing up.  I'm not the only one who seems to like it either as lately I've found three of my four pets sitting near these lovely scented flowers so I decided to do a scrapbook page.

I adore the lovely soft mint colours of this paper from Kaisercraft from their Memory Lane collection and it shows off the lovely purples of the lilac.  The sentiments come from SU Colourful Seasons and I've used the leaf stamp from Kinda Eclectic on the Title background and on the tag. Both were inked and sponged with SU Crumb Cake and Pool Party and the ribbon is Pool Party shimmer.  The butterflies were some I had already in my stash.

I'm adding this one into the 13arts challenge #66 which has given us a mood board of lovely pastel colours and I've used the soft greens and the butterflies as my inspiration.

I'm also adding this into the Rubber Buggy challenge for their feminine/mom's challenge as these flowers remind me of my mum who I lost 8 years ago this month.
