Bloom and Grow

The first day of spring was GORGEOUS here! After work, my hubby and I took our dog downtown for a nice walk and free Rita's italian ice :) I knew one of the photos would be perfect for this month's Imaginisce photo inspiration challenge:

 

I incorporated the grid design, green color, flower elements and spring theme in my layout:


I love the bright, spring colors! I added dimension to my kite by cutting triangles of patterned paper and popping them up. I also accented 2 of the bows with ribbon :)


I used patterned papers from the new Hippity Hop line and the "b side" of papers from Happy Harvest and Berrylicious.. what can I say I love Imaginisce and have lots of their collections ;)


I used the kite diecut and one of the title diecuts from Hippity Hop. I love their glossy look! I layered a few rolled paper flowers on top of the flower die cuts, also from that collection. I'm addicted to making these!

 

The Imaginisce petal roller makes them so quick and easy to make too. They turned almost as pretty as the blooming tree in the photo ;)


I cut some of my journal strips with a ribbon tie edge to bring in the same element from the kite. I also popped up some of them for added interest!

I'm also entering this layout at Lasting Memories ("paw"sitively sweet challenge) and Frosted Designs (grid challenge).

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

That is one gorgeous layout! I love it. I know what you mean about getting good photos of layouts in the gloom. I have trouble with that, too. But yours looks great!
