Create your own sunshine! Weekly Scrapper at Scrapbook Expo blog!

Hello there!  I am so excited to share that I was asked to contribute as the Weekly Scrapper to the Scrapbook Expo blog this week!  I had to make a special project exclusive for the blog, and I get to finally share it with you today!  

You can check out the Scrapbook Expo blog HERE for some more details about this project, a few of my other favorite pages, and a little Q & A about me!  

So this was the first real *warmer* day of spring, and my daughter came running off the bus, whipping her coat off yelling, "It's SUMMER!  It's SUMMER!"  It was really about 50 deg. F.!  lol.  But she was full of energy, and after a long winter, the sunshine just does that to you!

Now, honestly, I DON'T dress my kids to match my scrapbook papers, but the navy shirt my daughter was wearing in these photos just went so well with the Saffron Yellow collection from Jillibean Soup!  You can see the collection HERE in the My Scraps & More store.

The first thing I wanted to do was cut out these beautiful flowers from the patterned paper.  So I fussy cut the large flowers and then popped up some smaller flowers in the middle with tiny black brads for centers.

My background is a white on white flower die cut with a floral cut file from the Silhouette store.  Once I glued the die cut down, I machine stitched inside some of the flower shapes to add some texture and interest.

I am so honored to have been asked to contribute to the Scrapbook Expo blog!  You must check it out!  There is a ton of inspiration there!

Stay scrappy my friends!
