Step into Spring Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to my blog! Today we are celebrating the beginning of a new season with the Step into Spring Blog Hop brought to you by the Design Team from Memorable Seasons! If you did not start your hop today on the Memorable Seasons blog   here  , please jump back over there so you do not miss anything. Today we are looking at the word S-P-R-I-N-G and taking you through all the steps for creating a fabulous layout using an exclusive sketch created for this blog hop by Liz Chidester  the scrappiest , which was the first step! Then you should have came from Joni's blog   here  to mine .....

Mine is the letter R ....for "Repurpose" ......something that you would throw away or not normally use for scrapbooking packaging from your scrapbooking supplies, cupcake liners, popcycle sticks, etc.
Here is the sketch if you missed it:

And here is my example up to this point. I used the different packaging and sewed it down to be one of my background pieces ...and then later you will see that I used the backing from the sun Jenni Bowlin Stamp as part of my journaling block ....

 Now it's your turn to head on over to Megan's blog  here , where she will be giving you the 4th step in S-P-R-I-N-G!

Be sure to leave me a comment telling me what you think about this step. By doing so, you will be one step closer to a fabulous Memorable Seasons prize as well as getting your name entered in for a RAK from me! Also be sure to hop all the way until the end, where you will be taken back to the Memorable Seasons forum, where you will see a complete reveal of all the Design Team's finished layouts!

Have a nice day!

How to make a fast Banner!!!

From this months kit that Jill sent me I received these two wonderful decorative pieces of paper and wanted to do something different with them so I decided to cut them up and make a banner with them I had my handy engineer husband divided them out for me ...(he tried to tell me how to do it but I just batted my eyes at him and he marked them for me)

So I cut both at the same time and then just trimmed the other piece a little smaller to fit inside the other one and then just punched holes at the top and made this cute little banner that is hanging in my scrap room ....
