Kimberly's Spring Fling Blogaversary Blog Hop

Welcome to Kimberly’s Blogaversary. I'm tired of winter and thought it was time for a "spring fling"!!! All Kimberly asked for was to do something that reflects birth which is what spring means to in pastel and floral colors!
There is a wonderful group of sponsors that want to have "Spring" too ..... You are asked to take the time to stop and visit each one of the sponsors.  They have graciously donated their talent for this hop.

Creative Kuts ~ $10 gift Certificate (http://www.creativekuts.com/  )

KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ $20 Gift Certificate (http://www.kadoodlebugdesigns.com/  )
Mickie Burks Osman ~ a paper pack and some stamping goodies
Lucy Kelleher ~ Close To My Heart ~ December Stamp of the Month (http://love2createitall.blogspot.com/)
Nikki Schiltz Calmes ~ Paper Piecings by Nikki ~ $25 credit to Paper Peicings by Nikki (www.paperpiecingsbyNikki.com/ )
Scraptastical Kreations ~ $20 Gift Certificate (http://scraptasticalkreations.com/  )

There are a lot of great gardeners along the path, so this hop has been extended for two days. SEW, sit back, relax and take your time browsing each garden. To be eligible for the blog candy, you must follow Kimberly’s blog.  Other bloggers may have additional requirements if they offer individual blog candy.

Kimberly can hardly believe that she has been blogging and showcasing her crafts for a year now!!! She’s grown just like spring and learned so much as she has traveled the crafting path.  I am sure you will be as impressed with the talent from these crafters as I am. 

If you just happened to be visiting me today, I don't want you to miss a single spring project and want you to start at the beginning of spring at Kimberly. You should have arrived from Tiffany if you haven’t strayed from the garden path.

For my project, I have made an altered journal Tres Lynne!

Notebook from Dollar Store measuring 3.75 x 5.50 inches
Two (2) paper roses
One (1) butterfly cut using Cricut Sentimentals cartridge cut at 1.75 inches
Mod Podge
Pink Petticoat Wild Flowers Collection paper
Self-stick gems
Dragonfly jeweled gems

I covered both the front and back adhering the ModPodge before the paper was added and then 2 coats added on top of the paper which makes this feel almost like a vinyl. When these were dry, I added the paper to the inside following the same procedure.

Hope you enjoyed my project. I must apologize as I have additional pages to add with “friendship” verses stamped on the pages but I have been feeling under the weather for the past few weeks.

Thank you for stopping by and remember "think spring" and have that "spring fling"!!
Your next stop along the way on the garden path is Marleen. Don't forget to leave the bloggie love!!!
