It's a Spring Fling!!!!!

Welcome to Kimberly's Blogaversary!
We all get tired of winter and it seems about time for a "spring fling"!!!
 Kimberly asked for the crafters  to do something that reflects birth which is what spring means to her in pastel and floral colors!
We have a wonderful group of sponsors that want to have "Spring" too ..... I would ask that each of you take the time to stop and visit each one of the sponsors.  They have graciously donated their talent for this hop.

I don't want you to miss a single spring project and want you to start at the beginning of spring at Kimberly (http://scrappingrookie.blogspot.com/)

Kimberly has been showcasing her crafts for a year now!!! I've grown just like spring and learned so much as I have traveled the crafting path.  I am sure you will be as impressed with the talent from these crafters as I am. 

Since this is a two day hop I have decided to showcase different projects on each day So I hope you like what else I have in store!

This is my Day 2 layout :).................It is done completely with the exclusive You and Me Kit from CTMH which unfortunatly is no longer available...............but if you were one of the lucky ones who got in on this kit then you know just how marvy it was!

I am sorry to say that I didn't realize that the C in celebrate had fallen off when I was photographing and it is still AWOL.........a search party is out though and hopefully this scrapfest will see no casualties! LOL


And for those of you that missed out on day 1, then today is your lucky day! Because You get to see what I did yesterday............today! :)

For Day 1, I did an Easter Page because when I think of spring that is the first that springs to mind :)  I used some soft pastel CTMH Papers, loose organdy ribbon, and butterflies............then I topped off some points with some sparkles.....my fave!

For my Second page I was inspired by an older photo of my BFF and I!  Nothing is more fun then hanging out in the springtime!

For this page I used CTMH paper and sparkles and did a lot of hand stitching........which ended up looking great but took forever!

Thank you for stopping by and remember "think spring" and have that "spring fling"!!

Your next stop along the way on the garden path is
