Grow - Papercraft Star Challenge 36

Hi again! It's time for another challenge at Papercraft Star! This challenge is so fun because you can create whatever you wish using spring as your inspiration and at least one of these colors!

For this challenge, I created a 12X12 layout. I found some Spring papers I liked and then headed to the computer to find some cute Easter pictures of my girls! After half of a day (I'm not kidding) this layout came to be.

I chose to use the green color out of the challenge colors for my layout. I used green and yellow as my accent colors against the blue background. I chose to use kraft as my base and added a Maya Road kraft envelope to balance the layout. For some additional fun I crocheted the yellow flowers for my layout.

I am not sure why this layout took so long for me to create other than I just wasn't liking it. I kept playing and finally came up with something that I liked. I think it turned out pretty and it just might be one of my current favs! Funny how that works out! 

I hope you will join the fun this week at Papercraft Star!
