Uh. . .Yeah. . .Still Snowing

Having lived in Colorado for almost 40 years, I'm well versed in what Spring is like here, but even this is unusual.  Not unheard of, but unusual.  Shoot, we had snow fall a few days before my High School graduation which was at the end of May.  It's helping with the drought though, so there's not much complaining going on.  It inspires me to clean and organize, but unless there's snowman building it's still not fun when you have to be out and about in it.

Today's inspiration comes from Jennifer Halleck using the Bigger than a Breadbox April kit - the American Crafts Lucky Charm line. (Do you have your kit?  Pick one up today and you could be creating by the end of the week.)  This line is so fresh and full of spring.  The colors are saturated the graphics have a watercolor feel to them.  It's just fun and Jennifer put them to great use on her layout; I love the little scallops at the top of the page.  And Jennifer's not a fan of flowers.  She claims she's not comfortable making them look good on her layouts, but I think they look awesome - just sort of scattered here, they have a spring-blossom look about them. 

Use Jennifer's layout as your inspiration to create today.  The color pallet.  The theme.  The layout.  The flowers - if maybe you struggle too.  The scallop boarder - you don't need a punch or template, just cut circles and cut them in half and layer.
Link up your project in the  comments by the end of the month to be eligible for the goods!
Happy Wednesday,
