Spring!

Hello everyone! I hope where you live you are enjoying some nice spring weather! I know we are here in Texas! And since I was in a Spring mood, I decided to make a Spring LO! Our new challenge is up at Frosted Designs and we are asking you to add brads to your cards, layouts and projects! Our design team has done an amazing job... you are going to want to check their work out! You can get there by clicking HERE!

Here is my LO....


This picture was taken during a family outing at the zoo. It is hard to believe that my oldest is now 21 and the baby (Lauren) just turned 9!! Where does the time go?!!

Our sponsor this week is Imaginisce and we are giving away an i-top tool. I love mine and wanted to show you what you can do with it. In this LO I used it to make the brads for the centers on my flowers! I love that I can put the cute little fox or bitty bee on the brads by using my coordinating paper!!

I also want to say thanks to the lovely ladies at Stuck On U Sketches for giving me a great sketch to use! It has been a long time since I have had time to play along so I was pretty excited when  I saw that their sketch was just what I needed for this LO! And after visiting my friend Leah's blog, I found a new challenge site... Whimsical Wednesdays! Their challenge is to do a spring LO with a bug or critter! I hope the butterfly qualifies but if it doesn't I am sure the bee does!! And... Paper Issues wants to see our Spring projects so I am submitting this to Paper Issues as well!

I hope you have time to stop by Frosted Designs to see what our gals did for you. Even better, I hope you have time to play along and submit a project! You could win an i-top!

Now... I need to get the house ready! We are celebrating Lauren's 9th birthday tonight! She is having some friends over and then we are going to the American Girl Doll Store. After that we are coming back here for some crafts and then we will call it a night!! Have a happy, creative weekend!
