A 'Spring' in my Step

Hi! I'm excited to say that spring is finally showing signs of appearing where I live. I went for a walk the other day in sunshine for a change. It was so lovely that I couldn't resist taking a few happy snaps along the way.

Of course, I had to scrap the pics straight away. Here's the layout I made for The Dusty Attic.:

I tried to bring the sunshine to my page using bright yellows and oranges. 

A feature of the page is the stunning chipboard flower blooms. They're called Spring Blooms and I swear I didn't look at the name when I chose them for my page - lol! I painted these with Dusty Attic paints (the flowers are painted with the colour 'Sunshine' of course!) and the flower centres are made with Tinby Designs Colour Crush. I topped the flowers with a chippie ticket from the Tickets pack.

I've used two different chippie alphas for the main word in the title. I love mixing fonts! Again, I've painted them with Sunshine paint.

I've scattered some diamonds from the small Argyle Panel around the page and painted them black for a bit of extra punch. Those colourful circles are Colour Crush again. I think you're going to see a lot more of these from me!
