You can probably guess how the striking sunflower got its name. Well, to put it simply, it’s because the sunflowers move to face the sun (they just can’t get enough of that vitamin D!) and their appearance looks like a sun, too. On a technical level, their scientific name is helianthus — the Greek word “helios” meaning sun and “anthos” which translates to flower. Product Development Creative Manager Noreen Smith saw a golden opportunity to radiate positivity and fun-filled memories with this sunflower themed fall scrapbook layout — it will plant a pretty presence in your album!
