Spring ahead!!!

This weekend was the time to move our clocks 1 hour ahead, I have mixed feelings about this! I do enjoy having daylight later in the day but losing the precious hour is really too bad. LOL! Spring seems to have finally arrived and I am soooo thrilled!!! I haven't worn a jacket in a week and I'm loving every minute of it. I hope that weather is nice too in your part of the world.






I have some scrappy stuff to share today! :) Last week I posted previews of a project I was currently working on, I'm glad to final be able to share it. I have to say that this is one of my fave projects yet. For so many reason I love this frame, love that beautiful picture of my sweet girls, love the clouds and banner (I have a feeling you'll be seeing lots of those on my projects), those paper flowers and I love Jillibean Soup - but that's no secret! If you know me even a little bit, you know that I'm a diehard fan of Jillibean Soup. I can't enough. LOL!









I used various Jillibean Soup collections to create this project; Minestrone on white, Soup Staples - Yellow Sugar, Grandmas Christmas Soup. I used my Slice machine to create the banner and my cuttlebug for the clouds. The flowers are hand made by yours truly. The frame was also a dark brown, I used some acrylic paint (vintage beige and brown) to give it a distress aged look.



Thanks all the scrappy stuff I can share today. I'll be back with more later this week! Thanks for visiting!!! M xo

I love your frame! Those flowers are sweet.Your girls look so much older to me in that photo.What a pair of cuties.

Our weather is hit and miss here.Some days it is sunny,but there is usually so much wind that you can't go without your jacket.
