PTI Feb Blog Hop Put 'Spring' into your step



From PaperTrey Ink...
"February Blog Hop
Easter and other spring celebrations will be here before you know it! And besides, there's nothing better to beat the winter doldrums than to turn our minds towards those first spring flowers bursting through the ground and the birds returning with their sweet songs.
Your challenge this month is to put a little "spring" into your step, by incorporating the flowers, familiar sights and colors of spring into a
project. Think birds nests containing newly laid eggs, flowers in pretty pastels, new green leaves, baby chicks and anything else that speaks to your creative soul! We look forward to seeing all of your interpretations of this fun challenge!"




My apologies for this bad scan, my camera is shot and this is the best pic I can get for now...For this project I did start out making a card for SCS SC216 (shown below) and it just snowballed from there. I ended up altering an old photo frame that was in the basement last spring when it flooded and needed some love. I sanded, painted and sanded again. Put on the front cover of Bella Rose DP and lots of Modge Podge my friend. NOT!! I even finished the back of the frame off like a true framer with a piece of Pure poppy. Next I made my siggy back and it is ready for any gallery, okay my gallery wall in the living room.
