March Blog Hop


Sorry, now we're all out of sequence, but I thought the vines bg paper wasn't clear enough on the other photo- so scroll down to read the Blog Hop info!!

Woo Hoo! Blog Hop, again! Although, I now feel like my life is passing by in 30 day increments, and they are way too fast, lol!




This month we were to make background papers, then make projects out of them. I know a lot of folks will be jumping to Guidelines, and Guidelines 2. I went to a BG I've done before, leaves and vines-



This BG paper uses the vines from Beyond Basic Borders. They were stamped in Landscape and New Leaf. The little flowers from Out On a Limb were then stamped around- Spring Rain on one side and Pink Toile on the other. Maybe I shoulda' ordered the Hibiscus ink?!? The sweet pea is from Green thumb, of course, and the baby face is from Bitty Baby Blessings.




I have been out sick for a week, with no baby cards made, and 12 babies in cribs at the hospital as we speak... 2 down and 10 to go, lol!!





I have been remiss with Background Basics Stars. It's just background papers waiting to happen- and has seen very little ink at my house- not sure why. I used 2 of the single images, plus the grid from Guidelines- just to keep me straight. Colors are Ocean Tides and Pink Toile. Sweet baby feet are from Sympathy: Loss of Child, but the 'Welcome Little One' is from one of the dollar sets at Michaels. Sigh, these two don't count in my needed 12 by tomorrow night as I made them a few days ago and took them in last Sunday.




I've taken off the word verification and moderation for the night- hope it makes comments go faster. Enjoy the hopping- I'm off to hop around myself!

Oh Beth, you've truly inspired me this morning with your gorgeous vine BGs! I like the pink toile, and think that hibiscus burst would have been too over powering somehow.
I never thought much of the Star BG set, but you have changed my mind with your beautiful baby cards...so sweet.
