Make it Crafty Easter Spring Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT•Crafty• Seasonal Blog Hop! 
This month we will be featuring Easter & Spring creations.  If you’ve arrived from Pam Furlong's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have a number of Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using various CTMH products to help you get in a mood for Easter & Spring.....

Don't you just love the new flare badges??

Oh! and to make the Complements cardstock sticker pop I added some foam squares underneath to give it dimension... 

Below is the final layout with photos... I love how I split the water photo over two pages... it is something I don't normally do seems I try to squeeze or trim the photos down to fit the layout.

The photo below was taken down my studio/basement... the colouring does not do it justice...everything looks orange... I am so glad I waited to re-take the photo before posting on the blog-hop.  

This photo was taken in natural daylight on my kitchen counter... it totally pops the colours perfectly... Where do you take your photos?

Close up of the glitter & bling my two favourite things ;)

Mosaic Hopscotch Single Layout

It's been a while since I posted something to my blog/facebook... Why? Well... I managed to get a last minute vacation to get away from this winter wonderland..... Supposedly I picked a great week to get out of town seems Ottawa has had the longest & coldest February in 50+yrs (-25 with the windchill making it -34 and colder overnight........brrrr!!!)   So....before I left for the sun I managed to create a few pages using my favourite paper pack at the moment... Hopscotch.  Over the next few blog posts I will be sharing with you my creativity with this fun paper combo....

Here is my first page that I created at the end of January when I attended a Crop in Kars.   For this single layout I used a sketch so I could scrap outside my comfort zone.  I don't do a lot of single pages... it seems to limit me to one photo or lots of small ones...and if you know me... I take a lot of photos ;)

I love this Dr Seuss saying.... 
Today you are you,
That is truer than true.
there is no one alive
who is youer than you!!

I am surprised I use this Flaxen colour as the base colour for my layout... I think it turned out nice... plus the few touches of sparkle from the sequins and the glitter paper... love, love, love! how this turned out.

And finally a photo of my little cutie....I can't believe this was over 6yrs ago!

Supplies used are all CTMH:
Paper:  Flaxen & Glacier CS, Hopscotch Paper Packet, Picture My Life Hopscotch Scrapbooking Program cards (4x6, 3x4), Black & Grey Glitter Paper
Embellishment:  Hopscotch Assortment Flair & 
Other:  3D foam tape, Liquid Glass, Mosaic Punch (SU), Sequins
