Spring has Sprung!

I am a guest designer for Ally Scraps this month.  Cathy always has tons of lovely goodies to choose from so I chose October Afternoon which is one of my favourite manufacturers - I love their pretty colour combinations and clean lines.

I came across this fabulous display box (Paper Artsy) in the shape of a house and just had to have it!  The fresh Ducks in a Row papers and accessories will bring Spring into any home.  I wanted to display a favourite photograph as well as add some cute embellishments which could be changed at a future date.  The HOME letters were mounted onto card and secured to a 'card stand'.

I top the house off with a little tag which has been embellished using the rub-ons from the collection including those tiny little stitches!  A neat polka dot ribbon from Maya Road finishes it all off nicely.

Every home needs a pair of love birds - mine are made from Fimo which have been sparkled with glitter.  I will be adding more trinkets when I find them.

Bird cages are all the rage and Maya Road's bird cage is fastened to the side of the house dangling from a pretty length of pearls (Kaiser Crafts).  More polka dot ribbon adorns the dividers.

I always love bunting - especially the tiny sort.  I cut out tiny triangles from the various papers (which are all double-sided) and glued them to some baker's twine.  This is then draped along the house and secured with glue-dots.

I couldn't resist cutting out these birdies and flowers from Imaginisce Lucy Bird paper.  I stole the clouds from My Little Shoebox.

We have 2 new editions to our family today and just so perfect for Spring.

We were going to get some rabbits after we moved house, but after picking up Charlie (Lauren's rabbit) in the pet shop today, we couldn't let him go. They were supposed to be girls, but someone had put them in the wrong section at the pet shop. Ho hum.

This was just after they arrived home - I think they were still a little stunned.  They sat on the kids laps for about half an hour. Jacob's rabbit is called Luca (for now at least).

Charlie is just so adorable - he just sat there like a teddy bear.  I'm sure they'll be appearing a layout very soon!

Thanks for popping in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
