These two layouts were so fun to create. They satisfied (for now) my yearning for spring. I love the fresh colors of the new Echo Park "Springtime" line. The coordinating sticker sheet features the adorable yellow polka-dot bicycle. I hand-cut the tree trunk, but used a Maya Road chipboard shape for the foliage. First I inked up the chipboard with a bit of white, then sponged on green. I cut some simple leaves with my Cricut and inked them as well, randomly adhering them in bunches to the chipboard. It was easy and I think it's super cute! I love to take photos of the flowers and "creatures" around my house and I thought this layout would show some of these pics off. I printed the photos at home at 2 x 2.5 on a sheet of letter-size photo paper. I kept the white borders, and just had to trim a bit and cut the sheet in half to fit it long on my page. It's a great way to add a lot of photos, but still have room to play on the other side of the layout.Scrapdoodles, so I decided to try out little squares. I punched them from the paper and lined them up to create borders around my photos (don't you love these photos of my sisters and me?). The title was a sticker from my stash - I think it's from Me & My Big Ideas. Now it's a little bit quilty - which makes me think of grandmas, sisters, and cuddling up under the warmth of a good old-fashioned blankie.
