Slow as a Snail!? Naw!

Happy March 22nd Friends!  Wow--the first day of Spring here yesterday was F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!  In the mid 70's and sunny---I walked the doggies down to the creek and spent some time on the patio.  Boy if every day was like today I might NEVER get any work done, hee hee.  Now let's hope that the snow & cold bitter weather we had all winter are long gone.  And to those in the NE who got snow yesterday--I'm crying for you cuz' I know you are sick of it too---here's hoping Spring comes soon for ya!  Yesterday marked the last day of the CMC Classroom's Birthday Week---boy it sure was fun and thank you to everyone who stopped by with comments, jokes, and joined in on the challenges!

Cute As A Bug---Gina K Blog Hop!!


Today the Gina K DT is having a fun Blog Hop featuring some of the new sets released last Thursday including this fabulous one called "Cute As a Bug".  This set is illustrated by Rupa Shevde and is so cute--great images and sentiments for many occasions!  Make sure to hop around to everyone's blogs listed at the end of this post!


I chose the snail image to use this time cuz I think it's sooooo cute!  And I used these new yummy papers by SEI's "Couture" paper pad---I love the pairing of lilacs and aquas, so fresh & springy!  The aqua die mat behind my image is Spellbinders Labels 16 that I ran thru my "swiss dots" CB folder.  Then to make the dots stand out I ran some lavender ink over it :)  The flowers are all by Prima and the leaves are a Marianne Designs die.



Come on repeat after me---"awwwwwwwwww"!  LOL!  I colored with Copics V15,V12,V000/G12,G000/YG67,YG03,G20 and then coated the shell with Stardust Stickles for some sparkle.  I also coated the leaf die cut-outs with stickles too---I love me some sparkle! 



Now make sure and hop around to the other DT blogs today to see their awesome projects--you won't want to miss them!  Enjoy!
