Put a little 'spring' in your step

Ahhhh I so thought spring was finally here. But then Alaskan Mother Nature laughed at us all and dumped a bunch of snow on us!! I was starting to see my grass before that and now its covered back up under a nice blanket of white. Today the sun is out in its glory so maybe it will melt a little snow off. My kids actually had their bikes out a few days ago and were able to ride for the first time this season. Now they have to wait again. For my project this week I wanted to do something a little spring-y and bright. My friends and I have been trying to meet once a month to make a monthly project and spring banners was our project this last time. I use a tag from Gypsy Wanderings and layered it up with a few rounded corner squares from George Basic. The front is from Gypsy Font. I cut it out in blue then smothered the letters in glue then layered on the Martha Stewart glitter in my own color mix. The flowers are a mix of different sized Accent Essentials flowers. I curled up the ends of the petals to give it a more 3-d look then added a button and some *BLING*> I added an accordion rosette to pop up the letters. I think this is a new thing for me to do! A banner for each holiday! Now off to try and think of ideas for our next monthly project.... ~*Recipe*~ ~*K&Co cardstock ~*Blue Martha Stewart glitter ~*Gypsy Wanderings and Font, George Basics and Accent Essentials cartridges ~*Yellow button ~*Blue *BLING* ~*Jen*~
