Think Spring!

I am so ready for spring and it became my theme for this layout for the Imaginisce Sketch Challenge I entered. The sketch was created by Julie Bonner and we were supposed to do our layout from it for the challenge. I found the sketch on the Imaginisce Blog and thought it would be really fun to create a layout using it.
The sketch:
This is my layout: I wanted to get really creative with it so I made the flowers that I had just learned about and instead of using just a regular brad in the center I used some pictures of flower centers that I had taken and turned them into brads by using the i-top brad maker by Imaginisce (I'm loving that tool) and to add some bling to the center I put in some yellow Stickles and used adhesive rhinestone flourishes for the stems. I love bling! Then, I got an idea that I was just so excited over and just had to do it. I ran a piece of laminate through my Purple Cows Laminator (another tool that I'm really loving) and cut it with my die cutting machine. After that I ran it through my embossing machine and created petals for the circles used in the sketch and turned them into a large flower. I am so thrilled with how this layout turned out. The pictures have always been some of my favorites and now they are on a layout that is a favorite of mine, too. A Proud Member of The Lime Light. Come over to see what we are working on. Come over and check out what's happening at If It's Groovy.
