Spring is in the Air

It's another challenge at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com This week was anything goes using spring colors. I decided to work with pastel themed colors and mulberry paper. This is what I came up with from an idea in a challenge magazine from Papercrafts The concept was changed for what I had in my scrapping stash. I used buttons and fabric ribbon and floral embellishments instead of assorted felt circles.I also glittered and stickled a butterfly stamp from the Tim Holtz collection. Then adding a butterfly ribbon strip to the corner and a strip of washi tape to the bottom edge I finished my project with a Happy Birthday sentiment and added a few rinestones to finish up the center of the flowers.
I hope that everyone enjoys the great Spring weather we're having I sure hope that you all have a little sunshine where you call home and don't forget to stop by and check out all the great projects that the girls came up with this week.

Suuny Days

This weeks challenge over at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com was anything goes but to add the element of the sun. I decided to scrap a few pictures of our Vegas trip that I still have to work on and I choose a few pictures of myself and my cousin in front the Lexor. I had to add the main element of the sun so I placed a transparent embellishment of the sun with the illusion of it rising sun over the pyramid.
Using a strip of typed cardstock to the center of my page,to finish my layout I added a few chipboard embellishments.
Don't forget to stop by and check out all the great challenges from my design sisters and try adding a little Sunshine to one of your projects.
