Lawnscaping Spring Blog Hop


Good morning!  Today is the Lawnscaping blog hop, celebrating Spring!  The hop will run from now until Sunday at 11:59pm.  There are fabulous prizes to be had if you comment along the way!  Hopefully you got here via Tamara.  If not, you can go back to Lawnscaping to start at the beginning.

When I heard there was going to be a hop this month, I thought "Oooh! I love Lawnscaping. I love Lawn Fawn. Sign me up!"  What I didn't think of was the theme.  With the exception of about 2 sets, all of the Lawn Fawn sets I own are holiday-related.  And of course the 2 that are not have nothing to do with spring. I needed to get a little creative, so here's what I did:

(btw, I hope the teeny bit of coloring I did on the flowers counts towards their current challenge!)

I used snowflakes to make the flowers by stamping, rotating, and stamping again.  I think I saw Kelly Marie do this on the Lawn Fawn blog, but I can't find where.  If I figure it out I'll update with a link.  




Your next stop is Danielle!
