Friday Challenge - Spring Has Sprung!

Friday, April 25, 2014

TGIF everyone!  Lisa here with you today.  It seems as if Spring has finally sprung in most places (FINALLY!) and today my challenge for you is a Springtime challenge, perfect for getting a jump start on last weekends Easter photos or any other crafty project. It's guaranteed to put you in a Springtime mood! Think bright colors, blooming plants, warm weather, Spring showers, baby animals ...and maybe even a little Spring cleaning! 

 My challenge for you is to incorporate at least three of the following words in some way shape or form into your project:

For example:  You could use the word Spring in your title, add some flowers to your project and use a green patterned paper on your project.  You can use the form of a word as well i.e. instead of eggs you can use egg or instead of plant you can use plants or planted.  You may use more then 3 of the words if you wish  but make sure and tell us what 3 (or more) words you used on your Spring project!!!!

Here is my example: 
I used the words "egg" and "hunt" in my title, I used yellow patterned paper, I used cloud stickers and also used a flower sticker as well!  It's fun to see how many words you can use on one project!

Products used from the store:
Simple Stories Homespun Collection kit
New Beginnings Bakers Twine- yellow and white
