Hello Spring Scrapbook Page

I don't know about you, but I can't wait for spring and warmer weather to arrive! Here on the North Coast, things are still quite cold...at least for this Southeast Missouri native! I'm longing for 70 degrees!!! To help me stay warm and get in the mood for spring, I have been spending time indoors and creating scrapbook pages with the Garden Party collection from Pebbles. I recently created this Hello Spring scrapbook page using some 3.5 x 5" photos that I took of the plants and trees in full bloom last year in our backyard.

Something fun that I haven't done in a while is to journal directly on a photo. To do this, I used an American Crafts Slick Writer in black. It writes so smooth! I'm pretty sure that I've found my new favorite journal pen for slick surfaces!

I used a combination of the Garden Party Thickers and Garden Party Cardstock Stickers. Aren't those pink glitter letters fabulous?!

As an added embellishment to the page, I took the Butterfly on Garden Sprig chipboard piece from Leaky Shed Studio and painted it with acrylic paint. I painted the butterfly pink and the sprig green. Once dry, I added pink glitter to the butterfly. The flowers are asterisks from the Garden Party Thickers. This was maybe not there intended purpose, but they worked perfectly if you ask me!
