Default Favorite flowers question

So, my favorite flowers are daisies, blacked eyed susans and sunflowers in that order! Putting up our fall/Thanksgiving decor, and seeing some of those flowers, I realized I tend to use them on my pages! If one of those flowers are offered in a kit, I WILL scrap with it!

What about you? What is your favorite flower and do you tend to have to use it on your page?

I tend to use EVERY flower in a kit on my page. But my favorite are whichever is the most unique flower. It doesn't matter which one, if it's a little different than the rest I almost always put it in a special place on my page. I also preview my kits with that flower featured. Guess which one was my favorite flower in this kit?

(the purple one! I love the center!)

Well the purple one front and center pops out at me and it's very similar to how you've made your siggy with the yellow one so I'm going with that one!

As far as my favorites, gosh I love all the flowers! I love to use as many as possible, big, small, stamped, stickered I love them all EXCEPT I hate rolled paper flowers with a passion. If you ever see me use one it's because I felt backed into a corner and probably cried while putting it on my page. Hahaha

I just love flowers in general. I'm the odd shopper who always stops by the floral area at Sams Club or the grocery store to take in the beautiful flowers. Sometimes they even come home with me!!



So for my layouts, I scrap with all the pretty flowers (rolled too, Cassie!) . I do love the sunflowers too Dawn, but only because I would take photos of M at the park where the bank of the lake was flowing with them.

I love that you put your favorite ones front and center in your previews! How fun!

I love carnations in real life but I think I would have a hard time shadowing them on digital paper.

I tend to love a variety of shapes. I love mixing the 4 petal flowers with the multiple petals and also add some of those rounded ones that don't have much detail around ( but those are harder to shadow in my opinion).

I love kits that have all of those different shapes of flowers.

I am like this. And I always like more 3d flowers instead of the flatter looking ones.

I love the 3D flowers more than the flat one, like Kiana, but I love them all in general!

I love all the flowers, too, even the rolled ones! Most kits are pretty good about having enough flowers, but I really love choices in foliage and leaves! I like having several different ones with stalks and also single leaves. I’m picky like that! And if there can also be some berries or a bare branch, I’m so so happy.

I love all flowers!! I especially love flowers with strong scents.
As far as digital goes, I love a wide variety of flowers. I like different shapes because they make clusters more interesting.

I love the flowers! I'll use as many as I can in my pages because I'm a clusterer at heart. The only flowers I hate in digi are real flowers that have been photographed and extracted. I want the flowers to look like good fake flowers... LOL... like the kind you'd buy at Michael's or something. Make sense?

I'm a lover of ALL flowers- esp on my layouts- but my actual favorite flower is a daffodil. They are not included in many kits- sometimes some Spring stuff. If a kit has a daffodil in it- I almost always buy it no matter what!

I love flowers on layouts, especially the dimensional ones. IRL, though, my favorites are Texas wildflowers. Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush, Pink Evening Primrose, Black-Eyed Susans, and Firewheel. Huge blankets of them, as far as the eye can see.
