Thank you for that warm welcome yesterday! I hope you will find today's post inspiring enough to make a page and then upload it to our Flickr gallery because today is chock full of inspiration.
Today's Simply Spring inspiration is...
Simply:Butterflies, Birds and Bees, Oh My!
When I think of Spring, one of the first things that pops into my head are butterflies. And with so many ways to showcase butterflies, in the form of punches, die-cuts or chipboard, inspiration can be found everywhere. First up is the butterfly stylings of Beth Proudfoot. Her work is always so visually stunning to look at. Don't these colors just scream "Spring!"?
Every Easter, the Easter Bunny brings my littlest a brand new butterfly net and it never fails to bring her hours of enjoyment trying to catch these beautiful creatures:
Next up, we have one of my favorite scrappers, Vivian Masket. I am in love with her style, so simple, but at the same time, so classy. Love the look of the die-cut butterflies sewn to the paper. Note to self: Learn to sew!
On to our own talented Aly Dosdall. Did you know that Aly has 5 children? Where does she find the time to scrap so beautifully?? Look at all the gorgeous detail on this page:
And look who is back with another page, Lisa Dickinson. Just look at the incredible rich colors of the butterflies and that sweet girlie of hers, perfection!
And the last one for butterflies is probably the most inspiring project yet. It is by our own Emily Pitts . If I saw this in a store, I would instantly buy it. So absolutely lovely!
Now another trend having to do with Spring would be birds! And first up is our Moon Ko. This layout is magical, even without Moon's usual fabulous photos. And just as always, Moon balances her adoration for her kids with her sharp wit.
Next up, yours truly, with one of my favorite pages. I love the photo so much but it's the pop-dotted bird in the lower right corner that makes me love it so. Love his little brad eye :)
How about an adorable birdhouse by Aly Dosdall? Again such inviting Spring colors!
And for the final Spring inspiration, I don't know where you live, but one sure sign of Spring around here are the ever-annoying bees. As soon as the warm weather hits, they show up like clockwork. But this page has the cutest bee that I have ever seen, my littlest, Erin.
So with that, I leave you...until tomorrow with many more fabulous pages from our very own collective and some very talented scrappy friends of my own! I'll be outside enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather....hope it's nice where you are too!
