Welcome to our Scrapbook Global April 2019 Blog Hop!   I am so glad you are here checking out some great creativity found in one place.  You are going to love this group and get some awesome ideas, too.  These ladies are talented and want to share the love they have for scrapbooking with you.  Our theme this month is Flowers or Spring.

The lovely ladies below are our Design Team members.  I hope you enjoy my Spring layout  and find some terrific inspiration with these awesome items on our blog hop.  Enjoy!

I decided to do a 2-page layout using florals and after last month’s mixed media, I incorporated a bit of it in this layout as well.  I will agree that there is a lot going on here, but it was play time for me and I just had fun with it.  You could certainly do a much simpler version as well.

It started because I wanted to use some of the gorgeous Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut Designer Series Paper as a frame for the layout.  From there I stamped in coordinating colors of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper (now sold out) and coordinating products to highlight all the florals in our theme.  The photos I used were from an OnStage event here in San Diego two years back with a few of my team members.  I used these photos because the colors worked just perfectly.

I really liked the way the flourish type borders from the two pages and did you see I even added a little extra over a photo, too?  If you like this, check out this Spring sampler using the same pieces.

These pages were really fun and I got to relieve the event, as well.  And, isn’t that why we scrapbook to begin with…to capture the memories and relieve those precious moments over and over.
