Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

 

Hello Friends! I played along with the March Blog Hop hosted by Nichole Heady and Papertrey Ink. The challenge this month was to use the colors, aqua and yellow...just perfect for Spring.

The big bright flowers really do say sunshine to me too!! The dimensional clouds and the yellow twine are the perfect accents as well. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog ... we certainly were on the same wavelength when picking our stamps for this project!!
