Spring in Bloom layout for spring equinox challenge

Happy Monday.....although I'm not sure how happy it is, as life is changing so rapidly in such unexpected ways with the coronavirus that I find myself anxiously starting every day to see what the news brings.  My college kids have all received word that they are not going back after spring break and switching to online classes.  It looks like our local high school may do that also.  My husband's company is also working from home.  So everyone in my house will be home except me.  As I am a critical care nurse, my work is expecting to soon be very busy.  I hope all of you stay well during these uncertain times.

Crafting may have to be my happy therapy to brighten up my day.  Our BBTB2 challenge in combination with Double Trouble is Spring Equinox using a die cut and can include a bee for an extra twist.  I have pictures from a trip to a botanical garden in Denver last spring that will go on this layout of Spring in Bloom with the bunch of tulips.  I have pictures of the gorgeous tulips at the garden that will go on here.  My bee is buzzing around the bunch of tulips, pollinating away!  You can see all the challenge rules and the design team projects over at BBTB2 and we hope you'll link up a project.

  1. The tulips are so pretty on your layout. Love that little bee! The bg paper is just perfect for spring!

  2. those flowers! perfect and so spring themed! the paper, the title! you designed this layout perfectly!


  3. This is a beautiful layout! It is an interesting and scary time right now. I have my college student home and all of the ladies in my family work for our local school district so they are all home except me. I am working for now which is ok. We're working on how to keep my granddaughter entertained and educated during this time. Luckily our district is continuing with some packets and online assistance with work, etc. Stay safe out there and thanks for all you're doing to contain this virus!

  4. So pretty and perfect for pictures from a botanical garden. I certainly pray that we are doing everything to keep this to a minimum and you will not be overwhelmed as a health care professional. Meanwhile enjoy kids home from college because that won't last long.

  5. Gorgeous layout! I love the tulips and the tiny bee!

  6. you picked great images for your layout, and the paper is fabulous. It shouts "springtime". Hope you are not working too hard, but I am sure you are. Your family will survive without you, and will definitely appreciate you more when this is over. Bummer they won't be going back to school to finish the last few months.
