It's Spring at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

Here is the new challenge over at AFSC and my DT take on it :)

Time for the 15th April 2012 scrapbooking challenge!

Using sketch 9 – April showers bring May flowers – scrap about a rainfall, or storm. Perhaps the weather ruined your plans, or perhaps you were experiencing a drought or dry well and were relieved to see the heavens open. Or you can scrap about anything in the springtime, how it makes you feel after the long winter, new life, whatever speaks of this time to you!! You might not want to scrap about your garden though, as you may be doing that soon here – hint, hint!!

I flipped the sketch and added a lot of my own twists to it, but I hope you can still see the undelying sketch in my design. Here in NZ it is Autumn, but the weather over Easter has been absolutely beautiful, just like spring. I took these cute photos of my kids playing together at a local park on Easter Monday. I had fun spraying and distressing my 'Prima' background papers and clustering my flowers along the corner of my photo block. The 'Say it with Studs' bling flourish was the final touch - I cut it up into several pieces to spread it around my page :)
Try out the challenge yourself if you have time - there are great prizes to be won and guest DT positions up for grabs!
