Time for Spring

It's almost time for Spring!!! I'm so excited to see the sun shine and see the kids playing outside. My daughter went through a phase a couple of years ago where she loved to jump rope. She was almost obsessed with it. I made this layout for the Scrappy Frogs flowers and lace challenge. I will finish it off with some pictures of Ainsleigh jumping rope.

Almost all of the elements on this layout come from the new April Showers mini seasonal cartridge. This has to be one of my all time favorites of the seasonal cartridges. It's adorable.

The only elements on the layout are the little girl jumping rope which is from Palytime and the sun which is from Doodlecharms. I added the face to the little girl and the sun with a stamp from Peachy Keen. Since this challenge involves flowers and lace, I decieded to add some pink flowers to the tree. We have a tree that is blooming pink in our front yard now and it's so pretty and Springy. I used the lace as a skirt for the little girl's dress and an awning for the house. I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors to make the grass.
It feels so good to get a layout made even if it doesn't have pictures right now. I have put my scrapbooking on hold and focused on making cards for too long.
