~ All Things Spring ~ 3 Girl JAM Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3 Girl JAM All Things Spring Blog Hop.... 

You should be joining me after visiting Julie's Blog - Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.
But, if you just stopped in and would like to hop with us, head back to the beginning and start at 3 Girl JAM.

Make sure to check out the 3 Girl JAM Blog for your chance to win some awesome blog candy for hopping along - and don't forget to read through the Challenge Rules and link up your own project at the 3GJ Challenge Blog for a chance to win another fabulous prize.

Being close to the last stop in the Hop has proved to be quite difficult for me.  The 3 Girl JAM Design Team Members are a tough act to follow.  

Design Team Member, Donna @ Created by ~Donna K, will surely have a great project to share as the next place to visit after you are finished here.  

For my Spring Themed Project, I wanted to think outside the lines of creating a Simple Card and decided to create a Home Decor Project to get my kids excited for Spring.
Here in Ohio, it is snowing as I type this post and I am anxious to see the Crocus and Daffodils emerge from the soil.  I know my children are anxious to get rid of their Cabin Fever and play outside, too.

Spring is all about the gorgeous and luscious colors of the new flowers, the wind bustling through and making it perfect for Kite Flying, and about the abundance of new life seen in nature.  It also marks the time when we all get to indulge our Sweet Tooth.  Easter is a staple of the Spring Season as well.  So, I was a little unsure what type of Home Decor Project to create.

The Design Team was also asked to highlight the Newest Bundle of 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in our Hop Projects today . . .

Lemon-Lime and Grey-Gray 

I used the LG Bundle to adorn the outside of the frame and created a Pleated Petal using the Lime Green Ribbon.  The center Rhinestone was added to bring all the shiny silver elements on the inside and outside together.  It was imperative that I add a Butterfly charm, too.

I recently purchased these David Tutera WhiteWash Frames and have had several ideas how to alter them.  This Blog Hop inspired me to work on one for Spring.

The Silver Starburst on the inside is also a David Tutera product.  It is just one of many really cool items he has in his Celebrate Line of Card Making supplies.

I created the small green rectangle using watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Color Wash Spray - Lettuce, Christy Tomlinson's Chicken Wire background stamp by Unity Stamp Co., and some white embossing powder.  The "bloom" sentiment was created using K&Company alphabet sticker swatches.

I am thinking of going back and using the fun Color Wash Spray more to create a nice Green backdrop to the Silver Starburst inside the frame.  I think it will add just the right amount of contrast!

I would LOVE to give away some Blog Candy today!

I will select a WINNER from the comments left here on my blog post today.
Please be sure to complete the entire hop and comment on ALL the blogs along the way.  
The winner will be announced towards the end of Next Week.

Now it is time to hop over to visit Donna's Blog - Created by Donna K!
