Designer Showcase: Spring!

Yeah!! It's the first day of Spring!!!  If you're like me, you look forward to Spring. It means warmer weather. It means flowers, and bright colors. It means sunny days.  It's Cathy here, with this week's Designer Showcase, we are celebrating by sharing some Spring projects with you!

Gael is sharing this older layout that she created. It is just filled with blossoms!  There are gorgeous swirls and flourishes to make the "vines". The butterflies are so sweet. Gael did something really neat on this page. She took a Rhonna Farrer circle brush and printed it out on a transparency. She laid it over her photograph. It really gives the effect that the bee has been magnified!

Marlene has shared this fun page.  Yes, it has snow on it, but it is still a Spring page. Some of us are in climates where snow continues through most, if not all, of Spring.  As Marlene put it, this is the "upper Michigan version of Spring"!!  The photos are so fun and Marlene stretched the fun onto her layout. I love the title "Got Spring?"  The whimsical papers and fun brightly colored clips keep us dreaming of those warm Spring breezes!

Here are a few Spring time cards that I created.  Easter is always a sure sign that Spring has arrived. This year Easter is a bit early. There won't be quite as many beautiful blooms about for the holiday.  Speaking of blooms, who can work in the Spring garden without a pair of wellies?  I thought the rain boot would make a sweet card to send some seasonal greetings.

We hope that you are enjoying the change of seasons in your part of the world!  Happy crafting!
