Welcome to the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying getting to know the design team. If you are just joining the hop here, you will want to go to the SEM blog and start from the beginning.
We are sharing projects that have to do with spring or Easter and today I have a layout I created for my daughter's album. I made a photo collage of several of the Easter activities she participated in over the course of about a week. I downloaded the collage from the Scrapbooks Etc. site and added my photos in Photoshop Elements. The papers on this layout are mostly Dear Lizzy Neapolitan with a little 5th and Frolic thrown in.
The scrap twist was to use flowers or florals so I fussy cut the flowers from a sheet of 5th and Frolic paper and then added a rose brads and crocheted flowers I received a couple of years ago as a RAK.
The title was cut with the Cricut. The word "Easter" was cut with the Cricut Classic Font cartridge and the word "Blessings" was cut using Sure Cuts A Lot.
What do you love most about spring?
I love how the world "greens up" and watching the green plants poke from the ground and the buds on the trees. A bible verse that makes me think of spring and nature is Matthew 7:30- "God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown in the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, oh you of little faith?" I love the imagery of the grass and the reminder that God always provides; a reminder I need frequently!
Where do you live?
I live in a suburb of Minneapolis in Minnesota, so you can bet I am looking forward to spring. It is starting to feel like it will never come! It's crazy to think that last year on St. Patrick's Day it was nearly 80 degrees and this year there was still a thick layer of snow on the ground- the joys of Minnesota weather!
I am giving away a small prize. I have a 6x6 pad of Stampin Up Designer Series patterned paper and 2 sheets of rubons. To be eligible, just leave a comment about how you celebrate Easter/Spring.
