Welcome to the final stop on the CROP CIRCLES APRIL BLOG HOP! If you just came from Darlene Head Whalley’s blog, you are right on track. If you didn’t, then see the list at the end of this post and click on the members names to participate in the entire hop!
Our Challenge this month was fairly simple. Create a Layout or project that has a Spring theme. Its April 10th and we still have some midly cold temperatures and the snow still wants to hang around a bit longer. However its starting to get a little warmer and hopefully Spring weather will soon appear more often over the next month.
When I think of spring I think of spring vacation and getting away from the snow! Usually in the spring we would go on a little vacation, however this spring we’ll be staying home and counting down the days watching the snow dissappear. In 2007 we went to Montreal for 4 days in the Spring. We left NL in snow and arrived to Montreal where the grass was green, the flowers were blooming and blossoms were on the trees. Here is a layout I created of a pic that my hubby took of me:
There is a story behind this LO: I started it last year….hated it….put it in a “to re-do” pile and that was that….so I took out the layout…ripped it apart…added mist, washi tape, embelishments, and added some doodling. Now I’m satisfied with it! I used a fiscars lace border punch and pink cardstock to create the “lace” around the LO. The key to doing it is to make it slightly damp and adhere it with stick 2 way tape.I then added ink to it to give it an aged look. I used Basic Grey Olivia papers and chipboard letters, Fiskars Cloud punches,heart punches, October Afternoon Mist, Ranger Tim Holtz Flourish mask, Evalicious Flair, and various washi tape.
