Spring is in Full Bloom at The Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.

I'm hosting the new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog this time around. And guess what?  Yep, It's time to kick Old Man Winter out and extend a warn welcome to my favorite time of the year, Spring! Here in the south the trees and shrubs are all blooming and showing their splendor. Many are busy planting their vegetable gardens. The migrating birds have returned to build nests and raise a new family. Your challenge is to create a vintage or shabby chic project that illustrates the magic of spring in bloom!

My Take on the Challenge

I'm back to my layout roots.  If you follow my blog, you know that I like to get funkie with bright colors sometimes and I like to dabble in mixed media.  But really, what I love most of all is making a pretty layout with lots of flowers and a great photo and that's exactly what I've done to illustrate today's challenge.  The photo was taken out in the Caribbean somewhere while on a cruise with my best scrappy pals.

I've embossed my title word and the flourishes under the flowers with Seth Apter's Blizzard Baked Texture Embossing Powder.  I love the textured and multicolor look of Seth's Baked Textures!  The Funkie Junkie Boutique has a great selection of Seth's embossing powders too.

The word and flourishes are Creative Embellishments chipboard; they look so pretty peeking out from underneath my spring flowers.

These gorgeous blooms are from Little Birdie, and they are so exquisite, especially combined with Graphic 45's new release Bloom.  Bloom papers, Little Birdie flowers, what else would you need to make a delightful blooming spring layout?!

 YOu can find Little Birdie flowers at AC Moore Arts and Crafts!
