So many amazing and talented creatives to inspire you!

Speaking of inspiration, here's what I've created for today's hop...

"Angel" 12 x 12 scrapbook layout

Oh my heart! SO whimsical and dreamy! 

Let's take a closer look at this darling page...

She truly does have a kind and beautiful heart! The Slim Sentiments Die Set was perfect for adding that small journaling to my page, but it's those Poured Acrylic Decorative Swirls that really have my attention! WOW!!!

I layered them onto a large watercolor swirl, and embellished with some fussy cut florals from the Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection. So simple, and yet so striking and beautiful!

So perfect! 

My second project today is for all my card making friends...


Oh isn't this delicate and just a bit swoon worthy for your beloved?!

I couldn't resist backing the white Whimsical Garden cuts with clear vellum - so dainty!

That Fancy Kisses Die Set is really somethin', ain't it?!

So gorgeous!!!

And last but by no means least, a Spring scrapbook page...

"Filled With Joy & Love" 12 x 12 Scrapbook Layout

Oh how sweet! Those Mini Flower Clusters are errrything!!!

Here's a closer look...

Just adorable!

Such a pretty page for my two darlings!

Oh, and let's not forget to take a quick look at my favorite new Instant Dimension Foam Tape in action...

Foam Tape that not only looks pretty, but will last for ages - Love it!!!

I really hope my projects have inspired you today!
