Spring Layout~Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

Oh my's been you really think I'll remember how to even do this??  Okay, so I was inspired by the challenge at to make a spring or Easter layout with a bug and or a critter.  So, I designed this double page 12x12 layout.  I was able to use some Basic Grey letters for Spring that I've had for years.  I used a combination of Close to My Heart and Coordinations papers, Disney's Happily Ever After and the Pooh and Friends cartridges for the clouds, butterfly, bird, and flower.  I inked everything with Jumbo Java ink.  I also used a varitey of Cuttlebug folders in my Sizzix Texture Boutique.  I decided to wait on the photo mats, as I always make my boys matchy-matchy for the annual Easter photo; I thought depending on how it turns out, I might try to print it larger and the mat size will depend on the pix.  Sorry for the bad photos.  We are way overdue for a new camera and are holding out for a model that's too expensive right now!!  :)  Ok, here goes my try at posting and linking the photos!  I hope you have a wonderful Spring!!

After I embossed the clouds, I sanded them down to reveal the color from behind in the Coordinations cardstock.

Again, not the best photo, but you can see the little dots on my cute birdie!  :)

Butterfly & flower--you can kind of see the sparkle on the butterfly from the paper as well as the texture.
