Good Monday Morning!
If you've been by my blog before, you know that Mondays are my absolute favorite - and NOT, as my kids like to accuse - because they are going off to school. Like I said last week, that's just a bonus.
Monday's to me are a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning. Very much like spring when everything is blooming and the seasonal attractions begin opening again...which brings me to the subject of this month's blog hop.
Our guidelines for this hop were to think spring. I know a lot of people when they think of spring thing of soft pastel colors and flowers, but not me. (between you and me, pastels and I don't get along) I think of getting outside and getting out to many of our favorite places. Yesterday we took a hike at the Nature Center, but a couple weeks ago - on April 14th - we headed down to Greenfield Village for opening day. That I put these pictures on a layout already is a testimony to my Project Life project, but that's a story for another day.
For this layout, since I'm not pastel driven, I went with my yellows and reds, along with my April Showers by Ali Edwards stamp set. This set is fun to use because it has such a great mix of stamps that'll fill all the little needs on a layout - the border, the embellishment, the title. My original plan had been to mix two stamp sets, but once I got started I realized I really didn't need to - this one did it all.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Leave a comment for a chance to be the lucky winner who will win the Fly stamp set.
Make sure to take the time to be inspired by the rest of the Stamping Techs and see how they interpreted this months' spring challenge!
