Just Adorable

Good Afternoon everyone, it is a lovely warm Spring afternoon here is Southern Ontario. We have had rain showers off and on all day and they are calling for thunderstorms. April showers bring May flowers!!!

I have a Spring layout to share with you today....

Aren't they just adorable. This photo was taken last Spring when our Crabapple tree was in full bloom.

Here are some closeups...

I made my title with Thickers and Rub-ons and I stitched over top of both. I added my journaling to one of the tags and then covered it with a decorative vellum tag. I added some more Rub-Ons to the bottom tag.

Machine stitching adds wonderful accents and texture.

I covered this chipboard arrow with a piece of the cardstock.

Product List: AC Cardstock, American Crafts - Hello Sunshine paper & tags, Whisper Graphics tag, Recollections tag and button brads, MME Rub-On, Fancy Pants Rub-On, Thickers, and the chipboard arrow and other brads are from my stash.

I was inspired by the Citrus Twist Kit Sketch from 4_9. 

And by the following challenges:
 Scrap Our Stash Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I used the bottom row - Yellow, Rub-Ons and Thickers.

 Use Your Stuff Challenge to use eyelets and brads
Archi-scraps to use stitching.
