Spring Colors in the Garden

Hello!

Now, here is the stuff I have been waiting for! Nice, warm sunny days, and lots of beautiful colors in the garden! The greens seem richer and bolder this time of year, before summer scorches them. The pinks and purples are more intense too. What a pretty sight it all is!

Azaleas…

Clematis…

The lilies are coming!!…

Scrapbook Layout | Mom & Me

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Well, May snuck right up on me, how about you? It’s still a little chilly out, but the flowers and trees are starting to bloom, so that makes everything ok in my world.

I just wanted to share a fun, colorful layout with you today. I looove the new Fancy Pants Atwell collection. This patterned paper was a must-have for me! When there is a giant design on a paper, I tend to not use it (at least right away) because big prints are intimidating to work with/around. I just went for it here. I love this photo of my mom & me from graduation last year, and the pops of color in the photo worked with the paper, in my thoughts. So, I added a little black to tone it down, and voila! A page I love.  πŸ™‚

By the way, Mother’s Day is Sunday, have you bought gifts yet? I almost all of mine wrapped. I can’t to give them to mom!

Scrapbook Layout | Wild Orchid

Well, hello! Happy Thursday… it’s almost weekend time!

I shared a part of this layout the other day. I wrote about how I love this little hummingbird. So, I thought it would work well with this orchid photo. I love all the bold colors in this layout and how the black and white makes it all pop. It seems like I like to make more pastel, feminine layouts, but when I make a layout like this, I love it too!!

Scrap Sunday

Hello everyone!
Today is all about color. I had a lot of fun using up some of my stash on these pages.
I am obsessed with Taylor Swift’s ‘Red’ song. Thus, that’s where I got the inspiration for this page.
I used Autumn Leaves’ Pretty Poppies collection on this page. I still love, love, love these papers!

I am a pink girl. Sometimes people laugh about that, but I see nothing wrong with it!  πŸ™‚
I used an Anna Griffin paper as the background, and a bunch of other pieces by other companies as embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrap Sunday

Hello!
Here are some fun pages I put together, featuring my favorite color combos!  πŸ™‚
Pink, black, & white are always winners to me! 
Interesting fact 1: The ‘patterned paper’ here is actually from a box I tore apart. I loved the little butterflies, and used *real* patterned paper underneath.  πŸ™‚
I love blue, grey, black, & white too!
Interesting fact 2: The butterflies here were saved from an old pair of slippers. They were just waiting for their next life on a scrapbook page!

Thanks for stopping by this Sunday!  πŸ™‚
