March Studio AE From Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Studio AE blog hop!

Today we are featuring the March kit, Beauty of Spring


 Its not spring here in PA yet, but these great sentiments are getting me in the mood for some warm sunshine and flowers!


This was a school field trip that I helped chaperone a few years ago.  We are fortunate to live close to Longwood Gardens and it "wows" me every time I go.


I used one of the bigger sentiment stamps on this journaling tag along with the stem and tulip flower stamps to help fill in that empty space.

Please continue on and check out the other stops on the hop:

Ali

Jill Sprott (our March special guest!)

Daniela

Nichol

Sharyn

Teri

Jaime

We will do a random draw from comments for these 2 stamp sets, Big Wish and Sassy Cat



Comments must be made by midnight PST March 13th.  Winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by.


Supplies:  Technique Tuesday Beauty of Spring clear stamp set; Tsukineko Memento inks; Scrapbook Circle March scrapbooking kit.

I like your LO, I love the photo and all the bits and pieces that make your LO so much fun! Ali's stamps really lend themselves to scrapbooking -- you'd think they were made for that or something! :)

brings back happy memories of field trips! lovely lo!

Yvette said...

beautiful lay-out!

Mrs. Hill said...

I love how everything is tucked behind the photo, so they're tied with the photo but leaving the photo as the focal piece. It's always beautiful and sunny here in AZ, but I forget you can scrap out of season. Thanks for the reminder.
