Garden Party

When Imaginisce sent me this latest release I can say it was a warmly welcomed.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas and Winter (and the Holiday lines that I have been playing with)
But I can honestly say that come December 26, I will be wishing for Spring Rain and flowering trees and this line is just that. Lots of beautiful warm colors sprinkled with some beautiful flower patterns.
I didn't have alot of Spring-y pics, however, so I had to get a bit creative with my LOs.

This first one is a pic (balloons) I took 2 years ago at my Nephew's birthday party,
I took the pic fully intending on doing a LO about my quirky balloon fear and then never got around to it.
I loved the sticker stackers ('favorite') that came with this line and centered my title around that.
I finished it off with some doodles and buttons (I can't seem to do a LO without buttons these days) and was finished. I am pretty happy with the end result.

This is a close up of the mesh brads that Imaginisce has with this line. I thnk I might have managed to use the entire supply that I received. EEK. I will need more-they are turning into a personal favorite.

This next LO was a bit of an experiment with this punch
 I punched along the edge of my papers and then handcut each section and glued individually around my circle. It was a bit time consuming but I liked the end result.
I also hand cut a small piece of blue paper and added on top of my sticker stacker that originally said Spring. I then added alphas that said 'Summer' on top to make the stacker fit my LO. You may also notice some orange from the Enchanted collection on this LO as well.

I will have some more Garden Party to share with you this week so stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by!
