Spring Blog Hop

WELCOME!  Thank you all for stopping by the Addicted 2 Scrapping Spring Blog Hop!

As you hop along be sure to subscribe/follow to the individual design team members' blogs so you don't miss out on all of the gorgeous projects they are creating...and stop by our Facebook page, Addicted 2 Scrapping, and LIKE us if you haven't already!

Now on to what I created...

Exploding Carousel Box

Using the lovely papers from Kaiser TigerLilly Collection Range. Love how this turned out and my darling little girl loves it too :)

Embellished with tiny flower buds and leaves, it wouldn't be a carousel with out the cute little horse! Its a Digi Stamp I found on the internet, coloured with tombow pens. Tiny lace I found at a local market adorns the edge.

View from above.

The top comes off to reveal an exploding hexagon box with photos of my little girl and her adorable Shetland pony.

Opens out to reveal photos, flowers and butterflies.

Little hard to see but the centre butterfly is suspended on some acetate to give the appearance of flight.

I hope you enjoyed my Exploding Carousel. Next up is Canica over @ Shoe String Scrapbooking.
I'm sure she has something AMAZING to share with you!

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of the Addicted 2 Scrapping Design Team members hopping today:

Happy St Patrick's Day

Wishing you all a very Happy

Our Addicted 2 Scrap! blog hop has been postponed until next weekend due to illness and everyone on the DT being a little bit busy, so now I can breathe some as I now have more time to finish off a few projects :)

Spring to me makes me think of birds and flowers so I choose to make a Simple Birdhouse and kept the embellishments to a minimum and simple! I do love this BoBunny range of papers.

Darico wood bird house decorated with BoBunny Welcome Home collection papers, TH distress Vintage Photo Ink, German Scrap, Prima Floral Vine, TH Altered Big die - Caged bird, Kaiser Brown Pearls.

Close up looking down at the Bird House.

A very quick card I made at my LSS crop last night

KaiserTigerlilly Blossom reverse for dress, Rose seam binding, Bazzill, KAISERcard Chocolate, TH distress ink, Kaiser Charlotte's Dream stamp, Versamark, Close to my Heart Word Stamp, 

I have some very exciting news but that will need to wait just a little while longer so I hope you will drop back in so I can share it with you :)

Remember to celebrate a little Irish culture and

May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

Busy busy busy...

Second week of March already and I still haven't had time to slow down. Was great getting back out four wheel driving over the last long weekend, forgot how much I really enjoy it, especially beach driving :)

I have a number of projects on the go, I know I really should just concentrate on doing one at a time but its nice to have a change mid way through don't you think! Hope to be able to share these soon but here is a layout I did a few weeks back....

I love this MS Cherish punch around the page, so pretty and looks lovely when you hand-stitch it!
Kaiser These Days papers and die cuts, so pretty! MS Butterfly punch, my own handmade tulle flower with resin centre, Kaiser pearls, chipboard and flower, Green Tara buds.

My tally so far is not looking impressive :(
Layouts = 6 (Must get back into my 52 layout challenge)
Double LO = 3
Tutorials = 1
Cards = 10
OTP = 4

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend and hopefully lots of scrapping time to finish up all these projects. Thanks for popping by, have a great day! Xx
