Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop 9!

Welcome to the March Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! This month's theme is Spring...and I am soooo ready for Spring right now!

I hope you made it here from Sarahbeth's blog, and if so, you are on the right track! There's a list at the bottom of this post if you need to get back on track too! Here's my Spring creation...


Way back in my October post, I used this very same image from TE's Wings of Joy set and I mentioned then that it could be used year round just by covering up the mistletoe at the top of the bird cage...and that's exactly what I did! I stamped my image and added a little color with Copics, then layered up all these coordinating papers to match the cool sketch by Sankari...see it over there on the right!?!

Then it was time for the fun stuff...a pretty little mini rose and leaves and some sweet pink pearls to accent my sentiment from the A Year of Sweet Sentiments set. Some more pearls were used as a 'hanger' for my cage. I layered a few die cut felt flowers with a BG brad and a few Sizzix swirls finish it off!

Your next stop on the hop is Rebecca's blog...so hop on over and see her Spring creation!

Have a great time hopping along and thanks for stopping by!
