A Little Bit of Spring

Happy spring everyone in the northern hemisphere! The first day of a new season means time to start using my spring siggie.  Welcome little nesters!:)

It might be the first day but it sure doesn't feel like it... or look like it for that matter.  Awfully cold with lots of white stuff and more to come.  At least the sun made an appearance today to lighten one's soul and make me yearn for above zero temperatures.

Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner?  It is an early one this year.  Today I am sharing my Easter egg layout that went up on the Magenta blog today.  Some of the Magenta DT gals and I did takes on Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's It's a Sketchy Challenge for March.


Supplies: patterned papers, chipboard butterflies, chipboard letters (Magenta), cardstock (CTMH), acrylic letters (Heidi Swapp), glitter (Doodlebug Designs), embroidery floss (Loops and Threads), font: HelloChunky


For my take on the sketch, I turned it sideways to accommodate my photo and I went with a clean and simple style to highlight the photo. Some fun stitching pattern and shaped chipboard butterflies with glittered bodies provide touches of texture. I also matched the journaling text colour to the egg and the title.



Here is the March sketch created by Sue Sykes for Canadian Scrapbooker.




You have until the end of the month to post in their Sketchy gallery here.  Check out the wonderful inspirational layout on this month's sketch and others there too. 

TTFN,
