April Flowers Bring Smiles Tomorrow

Everythings coming up flowers, the crocus have bloomed, the buttercups are radiant and the woods behind my house are full of motion as birds return from their winter areas. Isn't life grand? Just soak in the beauty that surrounds us this time of year, spectacular! I've got a bevvy of scrappy ideas running through my head also and thought I'd share a few with you! These are from the new KI Memories Enchanting collection, and I have been enchanted with what I think is their best collection in a few years. Super user friendly and everything spring and flowers!

Spring is just around the corner and several holidays to follow, like Easter and Mother's Day. I adore everything spring, from Saucer Magnolias to bunnies hopping across the front yard. I'll be teaching these layouts in May and just wanted to share them with you! I haven't put pictures on them yet, but that's cool, because you can customize them all you want. They are from the new LYB ClothesLine ensemble and I've been totally watering at the mouth for the sweet, feminine and spring feel of this line. Enjoy and picture your photo's here! This one features a tone on tone embossed flower design which I colored in with Copic Markers, which won't bleed over the embossed lines. How cool is that?!

A little treat

Don't you just love using scraps?! My scrap drawer is usually overflowing so I'm always excited to use some of the stray papers to create little treats for friends and family. I used a foil piece from GCD with some very old papers from my stash. I think the foil added just the right touch of bling to the otherwise matchy, matchy papers. I stamped the greeting, added a flower with a rhinestone center and Voila! a handmade card.
As you go through today , celebrate the little successes of life!
