I Love Love Love Spring (except for the arrival of pesky hayfever) the promise of sunshine to come just makes me so much happier than the chilly Winter Blues!
In this frame of mind, I came across the inspiration Challenge over at Get Picky, it was so eye catching and summery. I had to break out of my "Boy Mode" and do something completely Girly (as Girly as I can be anyway, not a fan of pink). Being girly is not my Forte' as you all know but sometimes it is good to get out of the comfort zone (even if it does take you a week to get it right!!!!!). So here is the awesome inspration:
And here is the LO that took forever to do, I think this is because, in all my enthusiasm, I had no idea where I was going with it, I just knew I wanted to DO IT!!!!
I started by splashing a bit of paint around, and stamped with it as well to add to the distressed background.
Look! I even added some fussy cutting ...... of flowers!
Still have my button obsession, you don't know what it took to actually place that butterfly button on a page, I really thought I needed to bond with it more! (Does anyone else have this need to hoard embellishments? Please say yes and make me feel better about myself!)
Scrap FX, it is a new one and comes in 2 sizes this is the smaller one.
A few more flowers and the job was done. It worked out a little busier than I wanted it to be but I am a girl that does not know when to stop I guess!
So, on to the next challenge, gotta' go trawl the sites to find something that catches my eye!
Till then Spring Cheer to all,
