A little Spring reminder...

I don't know what the weather is like by all of you, but the last time I checked it was supposed to be Spring here by me but I think Mother Nature misplaced the memo. Here we are the last couple of days into March and it has been snowing, freezing rain and lots of wind here in Chicago. I myself really wish those beuatiful spring days would hurry up and get here. Besides taking pictures of my children, flowers are my next favorite photo subjects. Since I have so many beautiful flowers to photograph in my yard, I have a ton of photos in my library so since Spring wasn't coming to me I would do a layout to remind myself and all of you what will be coming if Mother Nature would just quit being so stubborn...
For this layout I used several different product lines, again showing how versatile  the RRBF lines are. The background paper is from the Bella! J'adore line. I used the 12x12 diecut from the Cook line. I didn't want to cover up the detail in the corner of my background paper so I cut out the outline with a craft knife so I could insert the corner of my diecut through allowing the beautiful detail to overlap. I also inked the edges of the diecut to make it stand out against the background a little better. I used some more background paper from the J'adore line, some Bella! Bling and my favorite, Decoupage.

For this piece of Decoupage, I changed it up a bit and added more decoupage elements to it choosing to only "uplift" one part of the design.

I fussy cut some random elements out of another piece of J'adore paper and added some bling around my photos to help highlight...
