March Kit Reveal

The groundhog may have seen his shadow, but the colors and patterns of the March Serendipity Kit have me thinking spring! These were perfect papers for scrapping a class field trip to Red Bluff Farm,one of the best field trips I have ever attended with my son. There was so much to do...all hands-on. He planted that little seed and looks like he is expecting it to grow right away! :)

Pineapples are a traditional symbol of hospitality, so I created one as an embellishment for this layout about our porch redo. A Basic Grey paper was the perfect base. With stitching between the diamonds and tiny tiles in their centers, it came alive.

This page uses one of Serendipity's brand new papers for the background. The Rooftop Greenhouse papers compliment the Basic Grey collection perfectly. Directions for the ruffle flower can be found in Serendipity's Technique Forum.

On my Garden Journal, I did a little something different with the lace cardstock...turned it over and used it wrong side up! (The white contrasted better with the background paper.) Then I had way too much fun littering the spiral with all sorts of cute stuff...a birds nest with eggs, buttons, butterfly, and canvas tag.

This turned out to be my favorite project from the March kit...and it's mostly made with leftover pieces of patterned papers from the other pages. Can you see the bird peeking out from the lace cardstock?
