Welcome!!! I have the pleasure of being involved in my second blog hop with these talented ladies :) - it's actually only my second blog hop ever! They are so much fun. We decided that our theme would be SPRING! If you are like me, and many others where I live, we are all eager for Spring to come and be rid of this cold, unpredictable weather. We are definitely on the way, but I wish it would hurry up a little!!
When we decided on our theme, the Bo Bunny collection, Vicki B, immediately popped into my head. The bright colors, and those gorgeous big flowers that just beg to be fussy cut, was perfect for what I had in mind. The picture is of my sweet daughter, who will be 16 next month. I realize that the picture was taken probably during the actual summer, but I just love it, and it reminds me of what to expect as Spring approaches, and it just makes me happy to look at it.
As I said above, I fussy cut all the flowers on the layout from a piece of paper from the collection. I pop dotted a few to add extra dimension. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Photo to ink the edges of all the flowers and the background paper. I inked the edges of the striped paper in orange ink by Color Box, and added various jewels to the centers of the flowers for sparkle and interest.

The Blog Hop starts today until the 12th. There will be a grand prize of a Maya Road bundle of goodies, and I will provide a prize from my blog too- I will pick a random winner from the comments posted here. I haven't decided what the prize will be yet, so it will be a surprise :)
So, that's enough chatter from me, here is my layout. Thanks for stopping by, I would love for you all to leave me a comment! You might just win a little goody bag. Have a wonderful day!!!
p.s. I had a super hard time getting a good picture of this, so it does not do the actual picture of my daughter any justice- so sorry about that
