Cross Canada Hop: April Showers Bring May Flowers

posted in: Layouts | 8

Welcome to another Cross Canada Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Nicky’s Timeless Cottage, you’ve come to the right place.  If you are starting here at my blog, just keep hopping until you get back and if you’d like to literally hop across Canada from east to west, start at Michelle’s blog. If you get lost along the way, Michelle will also have a full list of hoppers.

Our theme this month is April Showers Brings May Flowers.  I’m sure you agree with me when I say I can’t wait for those flowers!  Our tulips are starting to grow and I am so looking forward to seeing those buds.

Here is my flowery project.

You may notice something similar to my last post.  I’m on a scrapbooking kick right now and I am very inspired by the two photos of my kids.  This is Arianna, my sweet girl.  I love the smile I know is hiding behind those lips (which I made myself, just saying).  😉

I really liked the splatter look on my last layout and so, I got smart and did the splashing before I put everything down.  To be honest, I desperately wanted to use the new Blossom paper, but it just didn’t match the photo, so here it is, a layout with only cardstock and I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Here are a few close ups.

I changed my mind so many times on this layout!  I finally used my Brushstrokes stamp set, but you can hardly see it! I guess that’s just how it goes.
