I love spring!

Spring has sprung!!! This is definitely one of my most favorite times of year! I just love to see all the flowers starting to bloom, the trees covered in blossoms and green, green everywhere! All these springtime flowers inspired me to create my own indoor flower using the Sophie collection by Bo Bunny!

Supplies:
Bo Bunny Sophie Cut Outs
Bo Bunny Double Dot Kiwi Dot and Ocean Dot
Bo Bunny Ribbon Aquamarine
Bo Bunny 12 x 12 Sophie Chipboard


Cut out the flower shape from the Sophie Cut Outs. Distress the edges.
Back with the Ocean Dot Cardstock and cut around the edges.
Attach the circle chipboard shape to the flower center and finish off with a gem.
To create the flower stem, cover the dowel rod with 1/2 inch strips of Kiwi Dot cardstock by wrapping it around the dowel and adhering it as you go.
Affix the dowel to the back of the flower. Cut the leaves out of the Kiwi Dot cardstock and attach them to the stem.
Place the finished flower into the flower pot.
(I hot glued it into place, but flower foam would probably be much easier!!!)
Add spanish moss or Easter basket filler to the top of the pot.
Finish it off by adding a little bow to the front.
Well, there you have it, a cut little sign of spring for you to keep in your home! And better yet...it requires no watering! LOL!!!!


Finally I wanted to share with you a LO I recently created for Bo Bunny (again using the Sophie collection!). Our challenge was to use the 12 x 12 chipboard on our project. I incorporated the flower spray and butterfly and added a little Stickles to give them some added bling! The new 12 x 12 chipboard is definitely my favorite new Bo Bunny product from their 2010 Winter release.

This is a close up of the bling!
I gave the letter stickers added dimension by popping them up with double sided foam tape! This is most definitely one of my go-to products!
I hope all of you are enjoying spring or that it is at least getting closer to spring for you!!!
(Unless of course you live on the other side of the equator...then you have a ways to go yet!)
Thanks for stopping by!
