Hello Spring!

Spring is in the air ! I hope you had a great Easter weekend and spent and that the weather was fine enough to spend some time in the yard! The bulbs are peeking up from the ground and I have a few hyacinths that have bloomed! I'm always ready to welcome Spring! 

Meet Esther! Isn't she a cutie? I love the contrast of her dress - the soft lilac purple and the dramatic bold dark apron! She's sitting on a lacy Cambridge Doily so she doesn't ruin her dress while she's playing with the bunnies!
Of course it's a beautiful Spring day so butterflies are in the air. This one is from a big package of die cut butterflies of all different colors and sizes called "Butterfly Bush" - there are over 60 in a package for $3.99.
The background papers are from the Neapolitan collection that's got lots of pretty pastels. I topped that with a Purple Plum journaling card. The "Hello Spring" sentiment is from the Hopscotch Word Flags - there are lots of different words for documenting layouts that can double as card sentiments on a sheet in yummy pastel colors.
The finishing touch is adding embellishments. Yellow sequins from the Baby Avery Confetti mix look like little flowers from a distance.
A Strawberry Swirl Flair slides neatly under the raised die cut that was adhered with adhesive foam tape to show off the dimension and shine like candy! It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day!
