Fun in the Sushine

Yes, it's almost that time of year where we can start having fun in the sunshine again.
Sunshine really does lift my mood. Maybe that's why I like creating bright, colourful and happy pages the best.

This is one that I've made to share with you today using Bella BLVD - Simply Spring

I thought it would be fun to add a textured edge to my border so I used a piece of 12x12 Dotted Swiss. I cut my white 12x12 down slightly so that it fitted well in the centre.

I've taken a Tim Holtz Stencil and a yellow pastel to make the sunshine on the page. One thing I like about using pastels, is that you can take a normal rubber to rub away any excess.
Don't let seasonal patterns put you off when choosing your pretty papers. My page has nothing to do with Easter and yet I've still managed to use it and have fun with it.

I've used a coordinating piece of paper - Sunshine - for the title. I do love a little fussy cutting.
My black pen is often my best friend when I'm scrapping. I love to outline and add borders. I've also added some journaling, but did write this out in pencil first.
A little more fussy cutting from the patterned papers. Popping a little 3d foam tape, really makes the flowers pop.
Finally I used the arrows from this stamp set here to add a little interest to the LO. These sets are such great value. I also took a few teeny buttons to add to the centre of the flowers, a few matching stickers from the same Bella BLVD collection and then some splashes of ink for that final bit of colour.  
Thanks for stopping by today.
