Spring!

Well spring is officially here for us here in Texas. The trees and grass are turning green, the flowers are growing and the temps have been wonderful! At Frosted Designs we thought we would bring a little spring your way... so this week we have a photo/color inspiration!


Isn't that picture beautiful?! So..... this week we are asking you to use the picture and colors highlighted to inspire you when you make a card, layout or any other project you would like!

Here is my LO....

This is a picture of my parents with Lauren and her cousin Brayden when they were barely one year old! It was taken at a spring soccer game!

Funny story... I really did start with the right papers that fit perfectly for this challenge. However, as I was working with them, I like the designs on the opposite side and ended up using them instead... which is why there is so much blue in my LO!! I look at it this way.. the picture was a spring board and it allowed me to make this LO that I really like! So I guess it was successful even if it isn't an exact color match to the starting photo!!  lol!!


How cute is this darling little tree?! I was inspired by some BasicGrey stickers I had laying around but were the wrong colors! I love the dimension and the touch of bling!


You can't tell in this picture but the kite is actually raised on one side so it looks as though it is flying in the air! And check it out.... I did a little hand stitching for the string and those cute little bows on the tail! 

Please make sure you stop over at Frosted Designs to see what the amazing design team has done with this challenge. We are introducing the remainder of our Fabulous Friday Design Team members and they rocked this challenge!!

I am heading off to spring break today so I will not be visiting blogs this week. I promise to catch up when I return! Have a great week!
