Hello Friends, this is Krista Norman from Bellaandaideesmom, I am super excited to be one of the guest designers here at Monique Griffith Designs.  When Wendy asked me to be a guest designer, I knew right away that I wanted it to be about springtime.  Ah, living in Michigan there are a few things that I find more magical than springtime. Between the chirping colorful birds to the fragrant flowers to the gorgeous weather, springtime is one of my favorite seasons. I wanted to create a layout that would capture some of the special things about this time of year. I hope that I can inspire you in some way to create.  This layout is very special because even though I can't have warm weather all year long, I can keep spring close to my heart everytime I look at my creation. Enjoy~~~~~~~~~~~Thanks again Monique and Wendy for letting me be a part of your business.....



This Layout was created mostly with the darling cart called Kates ABC's.  This cart is so cute....Umbrella girl was cut at 4 1/4, Butterflies on top of lay-out were cut at 2", Bird and Egg cut at 2 1/4, Bee with crown cut at 3", Butterflies at bottom of layout cut at 3 1/4. Next, I used the fabulous carts listed. The Beehive was cut using Create a Critter 3 1/4,  My Community was used cutting the tree at 3 1/4, and the fence was cut at 2 3/4,  Zoobaloo was used for the clouds and are 3 1 /4,  and the sweet little sun is from DoodleCharm cut at 2 1/4...Lots of DP's were used including Echo Park, Bazzills, Coordinations, and Basic Grey.  Letters were cut with Gyspy and welded together at 3"
