hello spring {a doodlebug layout} AND a giveaway too…

I am so excited to share a project with you today!  It just so happens that today is my turn to play “hostess” over on the Doodlebug blog today – and that means I get to share a project with the Doodlebug Blog followers AND my very own blog followers…and I also get to host a GIVEAWAY!  yay!

I received the new product lines last Friday and I just couldn’t wait to play with this brand new collection, “Hello Spring” over the weekend (when it was windy and rainy and I was longing for Springtime weather again)!

I used several of the patterned papers (mostly the “b” sides…except for this darling bird paper, which is my very favorite of the entire collection!) to create the color-blocked background.

I used several of the sticker embellishments too – love the fancy frills border stickers (some are fun and sparkly!) and the cute glittered butterfly stickers.  You’ll also spy some of the coordinating buttons.

I love using punched shapes to create a really subtle pattern (like I did on the green patterned paper block above – simply punch circles and line up the patterns, then attach).  I added a few mini pearls on the green circles – and on the birdhouse stickers below…love the sweet detail they add!

The stickers in this collection are some of my favorite ever, and I may have gone a little bit sticker-wild.  Oh well…I’m not sorry! ;)

These stickers are also glittered (for the title), but it’s hard to see it in the photo.  I punched a couple of tabs from the 6x6 paper pad and tucked one above the title…I needed a little bit of green up there.

I like to hand journal on my pages and this multi-color lined paper in the 6x6 pad was the perfect choice for adding a journaling block.  I used a border punch to add the notebook edge and I like how it looks layered on another piece, and popped up slightly with foam squares.  I couldn’t resist another sticker and pearl combo.

And now about the GIVEAWAY!!!  The generous crew at Doodlebug is allowing me to give away some of my favorite Doodlebug products to one of YOU!  All you need to do to be entered in the drawing is leave a comment on this post!  Easy, right?  Of course, I’d love for you to follow my blog as well – either directly or through a feed reader, if you aren’t already “following” me. ;)  Please leave your comment before midnight on Thursday (March 22nd) and then be sure to check back here or on the Doodlebug Blog on Friday to see if you’re the lucky winner! 

Thanks for visiting my blog – good luck! :)
