"Spring Celebration" @Citrus Tree Studio!

How perfect is that kit title? "Spring Celebration". Who doesn't celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, birds, daffodils, baseball and people who actually smile at you in the grocery store? Spring in upstate New York is an all-around feel good, tolerate and just clean up the mud in the foyer because it's not snow, time. :) :) :)
Citrus Tree Studio has this adorable kit on sale now. It's filled with pink, brown, teal. American Crafts, Ocotober Afternoon, jenni bowlin...sounds awesome, right? It is! The first thing I did with this kit was drool over this Letterbox pp by American Crafts. I love this coral pink! The stamp is AL with some star dust stickles. Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart (This lady has had to have made a fortune off of this punch alone!! It is the cutest punch ever!)

some glittered, layered butterflies...

This is one of my favorite childhood photos. I remember this dress! I was 4 1/2 years old...the outfit was a red jumper w/white and red polka dot 3/4 length sleeve blouse. I had fun with the journaling on this lo, and thought I was all original by using the chipboard pieces to frame my journaling. Yeah, right. Original for about a day. haha! These little frames are perfect for framing journaling & layering titles.
I used more butterflies, mounted on the kit's AL buttons. The pearl centers, from my stash, are by Prima.

These pics were taken on my last birthday. I wanted to pose with somebody. LOL! I made the flowers using the kit's October Afternoon pp and pop dotted the AL buttons. (These flowers are wicked easy to make. Just cut out a circle using your scalloped edge scissors or punch and then cut into the circle w/scalloped edge scissors making a circle inside. Then roll it up. The base of the circle will anchor the flower to your lo.)
So, that's what I have to share for now.
Hope you're enjoying your week-end. Yesterday, it was sunnin' out all day long! ;)
Looks like it's going to be another nice day today.
thanks for stoppin' by,
