Thinking of Spring

The weather has turned chilly again and it's rained for two days straight. I'm stuck inside and dreaming of nicer days and spring weather (except for the storms spring brings to our area) so I make a couple of spring layouts.

This is the kids finding what the Easter Bunny brought them last year. You can tell they had just gotten up by the bed head and dreary eyes. :) When I was looking for papers for this page, I saw that the We R Memory Keepers Hippity Hoppity line matches the Echo Park Sweet Summertime line match perfectly. I used a combination of these two lines on my layout. I used this sketch by Allison Davis at Sketch Support. This came together so quickly with the pre-made embellishments from the two lines.

This was done for the February Products You Love Every Which Way at 2P's. The challenge this month was to use punches and try to use them in a new way. I found this sketch at Creative Scrappers to use on my page.

I used the Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge for my title. I love using scraps with my cricut; I'm using up a lot of my scraps stash lately. For the 2P's class challenge, I used a border punch, but then put the paper upside down from how I usually use it. I used some stickers from the sticker sheet to fill in the page and then grabbed my old Creative Memories circle punches to cut some from patterned paper. I sill wanted a couple of different designs so I decided to cut some from the stickers on the sticker sheet. I took this sticker sheet and punched circles from the kite, strawberry and some of the flowers to finish of the page. Everything on this page is from Echo Park.
