Pink By Design: Spring Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pink By Design: Spring Inspiration Blog Hop
I am so excited to be part of this great line-up of projects. Hopefully you have made your way here from Melisa's Blog, but if you are finding this hop in the middle I hope you will hop over to the start at Pink By Design and see all the great projects, plus find out how to take part in the fun challenge that goes along with this hop.

Each of us was asked to create a project inspired by the spring time photo above. The photo gave me a few ideas, but in the end I took my inspiration from the peach/orange color and the banner images. I searched for just the right photo and papers and went from this:

To This:
All my paper is from a stack I recently bought from SEI called Bright Blossom. I especially love the sheets that have no pattern, but fade from light to dark in the color and did not want to waste the whole page on the back so I cut out the center to cut my banner pieces off the Celebrations Cricut Cartridge.

After cutting my banner pieces I pulled out the My Type stamp set from Pink By Design and added these great words to my banner. The flowers came next with some fun brads and for the final touch I cut out the title off the April Showers Cartridge.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I would love to read your comments before you hop over to Annette. Here is the whole Hop line-up in case you get lost along the way. 

Remember to head over to the Pink By Design Blog when you are done and create your own Spring Inspiration Project. You will have 2 weeks to add your link.
