Spring Challenge Blog Hop #2-All 6 Completed!!!!!


Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop.......ok, my last post covered 2 of the 6 challenges. This layout will cover the other 4 challenges in the blog hop....and more, of course....you know me. The description below will encompass the other four sites in the blog hop. Below will be the other challenges which helped inspire the entire layout.
This layout is in memory of my mother who passed away in 1997. The theme of the layout was inspired by the poem "An Easter Flower Gift" at Scrap that Poetry . The layout itself was inspired by the sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. All the glitter and bling, bling, bling was inspired by the Cuttlebug Spot and Practical Scrappers.
The one picture shows my dad and mom....the other my mom, grandfather, grandmother, my sister, and I when we were very young. I love this picture.
Other Challenges for this Layout:

Die Cut Dreams - vintage, no coloring

Cupcake Craft - childhood memories

Sophisticat - so distressing

Crafty Angels - my favorite things - distressing

Crafty Cardmakers - a challenging challenge - finally figuring out a way to use these Tim Holtz swivel clasps...hooray!!
Creative Card Crew - vintage/aged

Tellen's Place - all about me


Pals Paper - flowers

Paper Cutz - 3 patterened papers

Raise the Bar - spring for it

All Sorts - petals and pearls



Rosie D's - blessings - memories of my mom and my dad still being alive


Stamping Vacation - leaf on paper; used Cricut to cut out letters; made flower glitter

Cooking it Up with Kate - old (the pictures); new (the bling); sweet (the pictures of my family)
The Sisterhood of Crafters - family, faith, remembrance
