It's Spring Time!

Spring is here! I am so Happy! :)

Spring inspired this 2 page layout! I Loved the polka dots and butterflies in the soon to arrive paper pack called "Dotty for you" from Close to my Heart. I also noticed the cute polka dots in the letters of the words "Spring Time" from the stamp set "My Peeps". I decided these fun polka dot accents would make a great pairing!

I love the cheerfulness of the polka dots and the beautiful bright colors that go together so well! Because these papers all go together so well I thought of them right away when I saw this Sketch Challenge at the Let's Scrap (Ning) group!

I have been having a lot of fun with the NEW adhesive springs! This was a perfect excuse to use them. I attached one end of the peel and stick spring to the back of the "Springtime" wording. The other end I stuck to the page protector after I had the layout inside. I've never used a spring in an album before, but I think it will do well- the spring flattens down to about the height of the foam tape.

When I was trying to decide what to use for the horizontal element on this layout I was stumped until a light-bulb went off in my head! One of the papers in this pack is multi colored chevron stripes- so I picked the color I thought added good contrast and trimmed it out!

The colors I used fit with the ColourQ challenge #130!
