Hello all! Can you believe that March is almost over? When I was walking the dogs today, I could tell that Spring was here. In the desert, we have a sweet spot of about 2-3 weeks before we start edging to the 100 degree and over mark, so I’m enjoying it all I can before I hide for the Summer. The birds have returned and the flowers on the bushes are starting to bloom. The green is coming back. With the somewhat cool gentle breeze I could tell that today was going to be a great day!!! Let’s take a stroll through the new spring buds of spring layouts in the digi-land today!!
Our first stop is this sweet page by 01lousmith called “Happy Happy”
The photos are absolutely adorable, and the peach color she chose for the butterfly and flowers perfectly match the jackets they are wearing. I like the purple and the pops of blue flowers. The quote sums up these pictures perfectly!
Next up is “True Beauty” by agoymerac
If you’ve been coming to this blog for a while, you know that I’m a sucker for butterflies, dogs, and birdies!!! I couldn’t pass up this “true beauty” of a page. To catch a hummingbird mid flight is an amazing feat! I love the spill over frame, the torn photo, and the splashes of color and paint that make the main background page. I can’t wait to see the birdies come back full force!!
And now we have this stunner “FOCUS” by Keepscrappin.
I have seen this page at a few forums, and each time it took my breath away with the creativity!! What a great idea to isolate the camera with a frame and keep the photo of the photographer full size on the page! I love the horizontal design fo the elements, and the piles are shadowed perfectly! The blended background really helps the artistic mood of this page. It’s in my favorites, but I don’t think I could make anything better than she’s already done!
This beauty is next and it’s called “Camilias”, by AmandaJ!
First of all, I love the way she made this so that it has an invisible background. It looks like it’s floating on the page! The flower element she used was almost the exact same color and type as the one in the picture, so I had to look twice to see what was going on! The foliage on the circle is a perfect accent – the page needed nothing else and she knew it. Brava!
And you should have known…butterflies!!! I love this page by anny-libelle
I love the texture that she created with the antique white colored back ground paper, and then the text, the ledger paper, the squiggles, and that gorgeous photo! Then to take all kinds and shapes of butterflies to surround her is perfection!! The shadowing is fabulous too!
Last up, and certainly not the least, is this fabulous large title page “BLOOM at 6” by kim517.
This page is so bold and beautiful! The pink paper is perfect for the large title and the sweet butterfly in the middle makes my day! The flowers are perfectly matched to the background paper and colors, and the shadows are very realistic. More than anything else, her daughter is adorable!!!!
We have come to the end of our journey for today! I’ll catch you next time. And please, take the time to give these ladies some kudos!!! They deserve them!
