Hello Friends and Welcome to my Blog! :)


Today we are celebrating Kimberly's Blog Anniversary ...Happy Anniversary Kimberly and I wish you many more years of fun, creativity and blog happenings !! :) So if you happened upon my blog please start with Kimberly's blog and because I don't want you missing a thing...and if you are here from Kimberly then you are in the right place! :)

What is a blog hop without candy! so make sure you comment!  Now lets get this party started and check out the rules and all the info below! :) have fun hopping! :)
Welcome to Kimberly's Blogaversary. I'm tired of winter and thought it was time for a "spring fling"!!! All I asked for the crafters was to do something that reflects birth which is what spring means to me in pastel and floral colors!

We have a wonderful group of sponsors that want to have "Spring" too ..... I would ask that each of you take the time to stop and visit each one of the sponsors.  They have graciously donated their talent for this hop.

Creative Kut ~ $10 gift Certificate ( )

KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ $20 Gift Certificate ( )
Mickie Burks Osman ~ a paper pack and some stamping goodies 
Lucy Kelleher ~ Close To My Heart ~ December Stamp of the Month ( Nikki Schiltz Calmes ~ 
Paper Piecings by Nikki ~ $25 credit to Paper Peicings by Nikki ( ) Scraptastical Kreations ~ $20 Gift Certificate ( ) 

There are a lot of great gardeners along the path, so this hop is two days, so, so sit back, relax and take your time browsing each garden. To be eligible for the blog candy, you must follow Kimberly’s blog.  Other bloggers may have additional requirements if they offer individual blog candy.

I don't want you to miss a single spring project and want you to start at the beginning of spring at Kimberly (
I can hardly believe I have been blogging and showcasing my crafts for a year now!!! I've grown just like spring and learned so much as I have traveled the crafting path.  I am sure you will be as impressed with the talent from these crafters as I am.

hine, Raindrop, and Rainbows and Flower
Now the only requirement she made was to have Theme ~ Spring/Colors are pastels to signify life, growth, spring (florals/paisley)

Here is my project:  I decided to do an altered frame of spring...of course I had to use my favorite color and I was lucky I had a frame in my stash...hope you like it and the recipe is below the picture. :)

My recipe:  I used a purple frame and then I glued down the pearl string with my Aleene's Tacky glue and then let it dry and then added the embellishment of flowers and butterflies...these flowers and butterflies were given to me from Shannon Leffew Keith (who makes wonderful flowers! and butterflies too!) and glued them to the frame make them like they were flying around the flowers and wanting attention...hehe...the one butterfly in the left hand corner I attached to a glitter green cs punched out butterfly I love to use! gotta have bling and a butterfly punch...hehe...hope you enjoy smelling the flowers and seeing the butterflies. :)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the love and well wishes for Kimberly and remember "think spring" and have that "spring fling"!!
