Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! We had a lovely weekend here, filled with lots of outdoor play and even some swimming (indoor) time! This weekend was also the Spring Fling crop at CMK, and boy was it a blast! So many people participated! Each of us DT members posted a challenge, and here was mine - to create a sign for your front door. I made mine a sign to celebrate my favorite season of the year :-)


I used a chipboard and acrylic piece from one of my Fancy Pants mixed media albums. I used lots of paint and glitter on the chipboard, and then I dressed my sign up with patterned paper, an acrylic piece, chipboard and some stitching. This was such a blast to make, and it's now happily perched on my front door.

I also have a layout to share using the gooorgeous April kit from CMK. This was done for my DT challenge this morning to use the negative image from a sticker on a layout. I used the star (leftover from a Sassafrass Lass sticker that I used on a previous layout) to call attention to part of the photo.



Well, friends, my Monday evening TV is starting soon, so I have to go get comfortable - I do have my priorities, you know, heheha!

Happy new week!

That spring door hanger is fabulous!! I should really start thinking of making some projects to display around the house as well. When I see what fun projects others create, wow, it all looks so cute!

Love the LO as well, that background paper is gorgeous and I like those different frames you made.

I really think your door hanging is fabulously CUTE! Great idea! And so is your use of the negative from the sticker sheet! I've used negatives from chipboard before, so I'll have to remember to use up those sticker negatives too! Thanks, chickie!

Have yourself a beautiful Passover/Easter and weekend! ;)
