april showers...

bring May flowers.. Yep, no doubt you've heard that before. What April brings me is birthdays, graduation and a move across country. Busy busy, but exciting times ahead. A lot to look forward to and be thankful for.
This post will be short and sweet. Have a messy craft desk to clear off to start anew. Here is the creation I came up with for another wonderful Lilybean photo challenge!
 Here is the inspiration photo.. from a Creative Mint..courtesy of the very talented Leslie.. Isn't it a treat? Lots to pull from.

I do apologize for the lack of light. It's been a rainy, overcast month and my light box wasn't doing the trick this day..Will try and do another photo shoot and update the photos. I decided to pull out a paler colour scheme of greens, blue, pink and cream. Lots of inspiration jumping off points in the photo.. I chose to stick with flowers, polka dots, stripes, and that gorgeous border punched edge peeking out in the photo. It may be hard to see but the envelope has handwritten text stamped with Versa mark ink. I stamped polka dots on my main card stock in light green. If you click on the image it zooms in...A lot of Papertrey Ink stamps used here.. Polka dot basics II, Giga Guide lines(stamped in pale pale blue on cream card stock..how I love those colours!)Background Basics Textstyle (I swear I will wear this one out first! I use it everywhere.) Some Inkadinkado Swirls round out the stamps used..
Well, I am off.. hope to get a few more posts in before I leave to see my guy graduate next week!
Thanks for stopping by!
