It's Been A While

It's been over a week since I posted some projects. I've been creating lots of stuff lately...just haven't been able to share, yet. The mojo gods have seen fit to smile down on me and I've been getting my scrap on. I created 18 projects (cards, tags, and a gift bag) for Paper Crafts Magazine's latest call (let's cross our fingers and hope something gets picked up), I have some DT things that I need to start....let's just say that I've spent a lot of time in my scrap room! All of you creative folks know how it is...when the mojo comes along, you just gotta go with it because there's no telling how long it's gonna stay or when you'll see it again.

Speaking of seeing something again...where the heck is the Spring? You know the season that's supposed to arrive around the end of March, beginning of April and usually leads us into the beautiful fun filled Summer. It's been cold...and rainy...and winter has stuck around just a little too long and is behaving like a woman scorned. I'm about to put out an APB on Spring. Seriously!

While waiting for Spring to show up...I guess I'll just have to carve out my own little Spring corner right here on my blog, by sharing some very "Spring-y" projects. All were created for Petaloo using Making Memories Flower Patch line.

First up is an egg shaped card all decked out for Easter. After creating this card, I felt like something was missing. I added a couple of crocheted flowers and it changed the look and feel of the card. The flowers were exactly the detail that I needed to complete this project.


Next up is a Spring Wall Hanging. Not only did those lovely flowers from the Devon Collection take center stage on this project, but so did the lush velvet butterflies. I layered them with paper butterflies to add dimension and make them pop off of the project.

Here are some close-ups



My friend Dolores supplies me with endless photos of her adorable little girl and although I have no problem using flowers on layouts about my boys, I can really get "girly-fied" with Elisa's layouts.

I used a lot of flowers from the Devon collection as well as a few velvet butterflies to highlight the photo. I love how effortlessly the colors mix and match. It's easy to find a combination to match with many different paper lines.

I hope you've had a happy visit today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mine are crossed too. Good luck or Break a Leg, which ever suits you best.

Loving your Party Girl layout, gorgeous flowers, makes think of Spring, which is long over due. Had to brush snow off my car AGAIN today and I'm not all that North.

Thanks for the inspiration.
