Waiting for Spring

Today is the first day of Spring and we just got 4 inches of snow and it's very cold. Spring in the Rocky Mountains is highly anticipated, but sometimes slow to bloom. The creation of this layout was to squelch my winter blues and get ready for the change of seasons. Bo Bunny is running a color challenge on their blog in which you need to use Green, Cream or White and Aqua. Click here for more details. I used the Alissa collection from last Spring that came in my previous April Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I also used my Cricut Expressions and the Home Accent cartridge to make the green die cut paper. I incorporated the negative part of what I cut out instead of the primary shape to give my layout a lot of texture and dimension. I'm having so much fun with the cutter. So many possibilities...

The photo is of my sister and brother in law and was taken to celebrate their engagement by their friend Jensen. They found those amazing trees in Austin, Texas and I just love this photo. For the record, I did slightly alter the color of my SIL's dress to match the papers...I know... it is part of my OCD tendency for matching. LOL!

Thank you so much for stopping by -

Liz this is such a sweet layout. I love how you die cut the green paper and how you spaced the letters out in the title to mimic the rhyme. Just adorable!

LOL... we are starting to pop up everywhere together, first on the Imaginisce blog and facebook for the stitching and now with Bo Bunny.
Beautiful layout, love how you've used the reverse of the die-cut and the circles across the bottom of the photo.
I had to laugh when you mentioned you changed the colour of your sister's dress... you've just given her two outfits from the one dress - very clever! :)

Happy Spring! Today is my daughter's 4th birthday and I think it is so special to have it today! You have snow and we were at the park! But I am sure Spring will be breath taking when its ready!
What a fun page! Neat idea to make that design and use the negative. I think there is limitless ideas with the Expression!
I made another sketch today..still trying when I have time.
Thanks for sharing with us, take care. Leah
