It's Spring!

It's official- I have a flower blooming in my yard... one flower! Well... actually it looks like it's starting to spread- there might be 2 or 3 of them in this clump. I took this photo on my way out the door to work this morning... the car was frosted over the first time I walked out. I think the frostiness made the colors more vibrant! My tulips have all popped up - but it's still too early for those to bloom here.

I do have a scrapbook page to share tonight- it's the left side of the club layout for April. Everything was made with CTMH products except the scallop scissors used on the journal box to the right- those were provocraft scissors which are sold by CTMH (and probobly Michaels and Hobby Lobby if I were to wager a guess!) These are new to our product line in the Summer '08 book and I thought I'd give them a try!! If you subscribe to Creating Keepsakes Magazine- this might look familiar. This is almost an exact copy to the layout in the CTMH ad in the April '08 issue. I did change a few things- for one- they stitched the whole layout- which was nice- but too much for my stamp club to do in the amount of time we have. Also- in the ad- the ribbons used for the flower stems were white grosgrain- with green zigzag stitching- I went straight for the green ribbon (which now that I think of it- was purchased at Michael's- it's very close to our Garden Green. I did not have enough G. Green grosgrain for the group and no time to order- so I went with this). I also had to throw in a sneak peak at a new stamp set!! The larger stamped flowers are from the June Stamp of the Month set- I am LOVING this set and all the great artwork on the CMTH consultant site!! I'll be showing a LOT more of this set in the coming months.(Supplies: All CTMH unless noted otherwise: Baby Pink Textured Cardstock from the Spring Harmony Set, Paper Garden Level 2 Paper Pack, April Word Puzzle and June Stamp of the Month (With Love) Stamp Sets, Blush, Sweet Leaf, Petal, Sunny Yellow inks, sanding kit, Green grosgrain (Michaels), scallop scissors(provo)
