Cute Little Bird

  What a unique problem I had this morning ... I couldn't photograph my latest layout outside because it was too SUNNY! Hooray! People always joke that there are only two seasons here in Montana, and one of them lasts nine months, so when that spring sunshine peeks through the clouds we all throw on our shorts and  sunglasses and head outside!

  The March kit from My Creative Scrapbook was so cute that it isn't spending any time in my stash before being cut apart and loved on. I had to use it NOW! The springy colors in the Dear Lizzy collection are so perfect for some baby pictures I found that I've never scrapped, and I'm sure you'll soon be seeing lots and lots of layouts with this kit.

Here the March sketch from My Creative Sketches:

Here's my take on the sketch:

Doesn't the sweetness of this collection just make you a little giddy? 

I punched my floral paper with a Martha Steward punch around the page and then cut out the center with my AWESOME new Stampin' Up cutter to make a frame. I had tons of fun experimenting with the different layers of patterned paper behind my photo! I embossed the little squares for added texture and spritzed the background with Blushing Bride and the Prima mask included in the kit.

These little Prima wood pieces just make my heart skip a beat. :) My new pinwheel die from Stampin' Up had to make an appearance on this springy page too!

The little clipboards from the paper collection make perfect journaling tags! This one slips behind my main photo.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, my friends, and I hope spring has sprung wherever you are! (Even if it's only temporary!) :)
