Been doing a spot of scrapbooking!

Hi everyone (and all you blog-hoppers - welcome!)
Crafty brain... just tried to use my round corner punch as a computer mouse...
Here's today's creation... so pleased with it!

I often have so many pictures that I want to put on my page, but this time I resisted and picked just my favourite! Had a day out last week with my fella up to Lakeside, basically a shopping outlet next to a lovely lake, really pretty. It was a really hot day, we got ice cream (and sunburn! :/)
(I still haven't managed to find a way of photographing my pages so all of the edges of my page aren't skewed by perspective.. but they're too big to scan! Oh well)
I realise that the lettering kinda gets lost on the page..

-Sentiments (Me To You, Papermania Vintage Notes)
-Papermania Sew Lovely Paper
-My Mind's Eye paper and embellishment
-Brads (Papermania Happy Days/Santoro)
-K&Co border and embellishment
-Xcut Alice alphabet die
-Papermania embellishments + ribbon
-Bee ribbon from Dunelm

Now I'm stuck on the page that goes with this one - I took some photos of some beautiful Yellow Flag Irises that were by the lake... need a title and some kind of layout (2 4x6 photos and one A5) but I can't find any inspiration at all! Been through my scrapbook magazines twice and the docrafts website and pinterest but can't find anything related to scrapbook pages featuring photos of flowers. Ideas?
