April Showers and Pretty Flowers

I love bright cheery colors. Things that make winter seem so far away. When I received the latest collections in my design team box from Nikki Sivils, I felt like Spring had arrived on my doorstep: All wrapped up in Nikki Love!!! I adore the whimsy that each collection has and thought I'd share my newest projects I've created using them

This first layout uses papers from the We Are Family Collection. The colors are fantastic!!! I also added a bunch of Burlap Buttons for a little extra texture. This was our sons first Sports Day (last year) and he so enjoyed it. 1st place in a beanbag toss WAHOO!!!!

Next a sweet card using the Max and Mollie Collection. I think this collection is my favorite with its brown, pink and green tones. Really Really PRETTY!!!

These next two cards are created using the very playful It's Raining It's Pouring Collection. I so adore the little umbrellas in these papers. Super sweet!!!!

If you haven't seen the Nikki Sivils paper in person, you have to grab a few the next time you are in your LSS. They truly are a joy to work with and so gosh darn versatile too.

I used Helmar Gemstone Glue on the Twine and molded it then let it dry. Love how it turned out. All those little umbrellas have a dollop of Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots as well.  If you have wanted to try Helmar products they are now available at Two Peas.

On a side note, we finally got a spot for our little girl to go to school and she starts tomorrow. She is so excited she can hardly stand it. They sure grow up fast. Hope you all have a fantastic day. See you soon
