Think Spring Blog Hop

                               resource.jpg
Welcome to the THINK SPRING BLOG HOP!!  You should have arrived here from the amazingly talented Crafty Baskets !  If you just happened upon my blog, be sure to go back to the beginning at Creations With Kathryn . She is our wonderful host for this hop!  On to my project: I decided to make a Spring mini album to showcase a few pictures that I took at the Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin, TX.  What is more telling of Spring than flowers?!   I used the Card/Tag feature on the Paisley Cricut cartridge and used paper from the DCWV Spring cardstack. (I think this stack was from last year or maybe even the year before! :-) I'm just finally using it! )  The paper flowers throughout are from the 3 Birds Pretty Petals collection.  Read to the end of this post to find the link for the next blog to hop to and for my blog candy!






This is a pic of an open page.

Now for my blog candy!!  Just leave me a comment on this post with a way to contact you - you don't have to be a follower unless you want to - and I will pick a winner by random.org on Monday! I'm giving away a little boxed set of homemade Valentine cards and some Valentine candy!  

Thanks for stopping by today and here is your link to the next awesome blog in our hop: Stephanie's Scrapping/Stamping Card Making site !
