Come on, spring!

Won't be long now and spring will be upon us. Well, we hope so anyway, right!? LOL I love new blooms and green grass and all the freshness of a new beginning! And I love these new blooming dies too. Such versatility with these pieces, you can come up with oodles of flower designs. Just play and have fun!!

I've used the new blooms on this layout along with the frog and lily pad, and the dot/scallop edger. The frog die is perfect for this silly picture of Courtney and the huge frog she caught in the pond. Grama still says ewwww no matter how cute Courtney is holding it. ;)

For my next project this week, I used the adorable Mr. Gnome and his stump house. I thought it was the perfect way to congratulate someone on their new home or apartment. I used cork paper for the title background and added a mushroom to the ribbon for a little something extra.

This is the inside message:

Thanks for coming by today. I hope you'll find something that inspires you to create!
