Celebrate Today~

One of my favorite NSD challenges has and always will be the Timed Challenge.

I’m not sure why, maybe it’s because if given enough warning I get one totally uninterrupted hour to craft from the family. He he.

This year the NSD 2015 Challenge: Spring Into Action hosted by Jenny Dennis was no exception.

Not only did we have just one hour to create our project, it also had to have a Spring element to it.

My original plan was to make a cute and simple Spring card; however, I froze when it was time to spring into action.

After about five minutes of just sitting at my desk looking at stamps I decided to grab one of Hartly’s school pictures with the most beautiful bushes blooming all around her.

My layout~

Celebrate Today

Spring school picture…spring flowers…it works, right?

And then it was simply a matter of finding coordinating papers and embellishments.

Which you can see I had no problem with once I opened my October Afternoon Cake Walk stash.

I even grabbed that Unicorn stamp set that I was thinking I would use earlier and stamped away.

I thought the “think pretty thoughts went” perfectly with the feel of my layout.

Anyway, not too bad for a one hour challenge I think.
