March is officially here and, to me, that means Spring is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t look at another winter photo with hats, gloves and scarves, so I decided to usher in some sunshine myself with this fun and colorful layout class. Regardless of what the weather is outside, we’ll be thinking all about bright, cheery days ahead when we learn how to make paper grass and flower embellishments for this 2-page, 12x12 layout. We will be using lots of ribbon, felt, buttons, rhinestone flowers and fabulous colored patterns and cardstock. This layout is suitable for any spring-like photos in your stash – backyard garden photos, pets running through the green grass, arboretum pictures, botanical gardens, etc. So bring your scissors, adhesive, trimmer and circle cutters and let’s bask in our own sunshine!! See you soon! – Connie
