Spring layout (for BBTB2)

Spring flowers are the theme this week for the BBTB2 challenge.  I'm feeling all springy and my daffodils and grape hyacinths are starting to pop their stalks up out of the ground, so this was a fun layout to make!  I was in the mood for soft spring colors, so when I found the soft green striped background paper in my stash I knew it was just the thing!  Love it when I am surprised by finding something in my stash (although I think my husband feels that means the stash is too big…!).  I used my CM Be Young cartridge for most of the cuts and CM Cheerful Seasons for the title.

the whole layout

isn't Mr. Sun cool with his shades?

pretty spring flowers

even the tree is feeling springy and full of leaves!

I hope you are having some lovely spring weather soon and can enjoy the flowers!  In the meantime, we'd love to see your flower projects at BBTB2, so link up your projects!  And, check out the fresh fun projects from the rest of the design team!
