Scrap365 magazine April challenge

Good afternoon bloggers!

I have been busy scrapping this "Spring has Sprung" layout using the March sketch challenge in Scrap365 magazine. I don't usually follow challenges but have recently started this type of scrapbooking and there's no stopping me now! When I do a sketch challenge, I do like to stay true to the sketch (otherwise, what's the point?).

The Spring has Sprung background sheet is from the Dear Lizzy set by American Crafts. The badge is Cath Kidston. The tag is Sass Belle. The bone clip is from Morrisons.  The chipboard pieces are Webster's Pages. The floral sheet is Nel Whatmore. The daffodils are Papermania. The heritage letters are from the Lost & Found set by My Mind's Eye. The other items are from my stash.

As always, I like to use some free stuff/older stash on every layout and I always go to my scrap paper stash for mounting photos, etc.

The photo was taken in my garden with the early daffodils in bloom! I always like to photograph the early signs of spring!

Have a good weekend. I'm off to the big smoke to visit my bestie and see a show! I am planning to call in at the Yellow Vintage Fair on the way home on Sunday! I am looking forward to my road trip!
