It's beginning to look like SPRING!

well, Spring will be here soon enough! Happy Monday friends!! Thank you so much for bearing with me while i've been down, out and sick these past weeks... i am feeling much better!! better enough to get back to crafting, blogging, emailing and the works... =D

this week at Lollipop Crafts, Lollipop Girl Tammy is hosting Challenge #28 - Think Spring! use spring colors and/or a spring themed image on your creation and come and play with us!! there is a fabulous surprise prize and you have to check out this week's challenge post to find out who it is!! and hey, while you're there, why not check out what the Lollipop Girls have in store for you today and show them some love!!!

i absolutely LOVE spring!! lots of great things to look forward to in the spring time!! many celebrations too... when i think of spring, i think of girls' day, Easter, mother's day, my wedding anniversary and of course my bday (which i'm not looking forward to cause it makes me old, LOL)... and i just love the bright colors that represent that spring is here and the blossoming of flowers... it's really a wonderful season to be in... so today, my creations are based on bold spring colors with Easter and Mother's day celebrations in mind... take a look!

i once again turned to my old faithful french fry box die and added a new twist... after cutting out the templates, i embossed the sides and front of the box using my swiss dots embossing folder... took out my spring colored papers and added a strip to the front... then after going through the many dies i haven't used in a while or haven't used at all, i found this layering flowers die tucked away... cie-cut some of those completed with a brad middle and popped it onto the strip... for an Easter theme i used this bunny with the Happy Easter around it by Studio G and punched it into circles and layered it with the scallop nestie... these are ready to be filled with treats and given away! in fact, i'll have some of these at the next craft fair event i'm participating in...

so what do you think of when you think of Spring?? be sure to come and share your creations with us at Lollipop Crafts! We would LOVE to have you participate in this week's challenge!
