SPRING TREASURE - Single Page Layout
(Scraps of Elegance DT - 'A Song of Spring' Kit
with Berry71bleu & ARTastic May Challenges)

Hello!  I have some more DT projects to share with you over the next few days
featuring the bloomingly beautiful Scraps of Elegance April kit, 'A Song of Spring'.

Speaking of Spring, today's share pays homage to this fabulous season.

I was inspired by 2 challenges in the creation of this page.

The Berry71bleu May Mood Board is called 'Spring Blooms and New Life'.
How lovely and inspiring are those images!

The ARTastic May Challenge seems to fit in perfectly with the whole Spring theme.
This amazing painting is called The Garden and is from New Zealand artist, Michael Sass.
The criteria for the Artastic challenge is to use flowers which of course I did.  I always do!

 I think pretty much every normal person loves Spring
just simply for the fact that it is so refreshing and rejuvenating to see
the trees starting to leaf and flowers to bloom FINALLY
after an always too long Winter, especially here in Canada.
I don't have much of a green thumb so obviously I don't garden much, 
but when we bought our house 5 years ago, we were blessed
to also get a very nice flower bed in front of it full of perennials including 
gorgeous tulips that bloom every Spring without me having to lift a finger.

The picture used on my page is not of my tulips however as they are not quite fully 
bloomed yet (I told you... long Canadian Winter!). 
It is a Desktop Wallpaper image that I found online right HERE

I had a lot of fun with the 49 and Market 'Wings & Things' layered embellishment
set included in the SOE Elements Add-On.  The beautiful floral wreath, branches
and little hummingbirds were the perfect decorations for my page 
combined with a pretty pink flower flair from ScrapBerry's.

You can see here glimpses of some gorgeous 49 and Market patterned paper.
I added a few Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops from the main kit for some added color and texture

All together, it makes for a very flowery layout!

Thank you to Berry71bleu and ARTastic for the inspiration
and Scraps of Elegance for the gorgeous kits!
