Feel the Flower Power With This Sunflower Scrapbook Layout

Did you know that the National Garden Bureau designated 2021 as the “Year of the Sunflower?!” On that note, here at CM, sunflowers are the main design factor for many aspects of the Croptoberfest 2021 collection! It’s hard to not love these brilliant blooms — they radiate a cheeriness and positivity and they grow strong and tall. Sunflowers earned their common name because their big, joyful heads follow the movement of the sun across the sky easy to west, and then returns at night to face the east, ready again for the morning sun (aka, heliotropic). Turn your direction to sunflowers this autumn — from the massive meadows, pretty pastures and fertile fields — and partake in some bloomin’ photo ops. And after — make this sunflowers scrapbook layout!
