Flowers, Feathers and Fairies Spring Release! Check out the new line of Flower Inspired Ladies!!!

Good Morning everyone!!! I am so excited to share Flowers, Feathers and Fairies Spring Releases with you!!! Sabrina is debuting 4 new digis today all Flower inpired!!
In order of appearance you have: Blooming Fairy, Snow Drop Fairy, Nymphaea and Peony Fairy.
Aren't they just so sweet? I am in love with them all so much!! Sadly, I only got to work with 2 of them to show you today but you can bet the other 2 are on my list of must haves!! You can find all these new releases in the Flowers, Feathers and Fairies Etsy Shop.

So the 1st card I'm going to show you is play with Nymphaea who is a water lily. I really tried to play on the water aspect and make her look like she's really floating in a pond.
What do you think? How'd I do? I am so in love with this image. Water lillies are one of my favorite flowers. My Great Grandma had a small pond in her yard and she grew Water Lillies. They were her pride and joy. I have 2 tattooed between my shoulder blades in her memory. So this card will go to my Grandma, my Great Grandmas daughter this Mothers Day.

 The 2nd card I made to show you today is using the Blooming Fairy. I love that Sabrina took a flower with a big curve and made her  look like she's expecting!! It's something we haven't seen yet from the current phase of flower themed digis. She is designed after the Muscari flower and I think she's just so sweet!!
I can't wait to have a pregnant friend or family member to share this card with!! I just love it!! And the sentiment I think is too much fun!!

Make sure you pop over to all these places to see what the rest of the Design Team Created with the Spring Releases!! As well as to pick yours up!!

And!!! Sabrina put some stamps ON SALE this weekend for Easter!!

Aurors Wings Challenge #47- Easter Pastels: Notebook using Camellia Spirit

No automatic alt text available.
Hey everyone!! Welcome to another challenge at Aurora Wings Challenge Blog! This time we want to see your Pastel Colors!!!
I worked with the beautiful Camellia Spirit this time and made myself a little notebook to keep track of all things crafty business transaction! I'm so looking forward to having all my notes and thoughts and everything all in 1 place!! Check it out:

 I started by coloring up this beautiful image with my Kit and Clowder February Class which focused on Camellias. Isn't she just gorgeous?!? Now, I know she's not quite as pastel as you generally think of pastels as being but believe me she is a lot softer that I would normally color her!!! 
You can find the stunning Camellia Spirit here:

Aurora Wings Website:

I mounted her onto a light blue cardstock and chipboard piece to make the front cover of my notebook. I then added a quick title on the side. Viola!!! I really wanted this image to just be the focus of this project and I didn't want to not be able to write on the cover side of the book so skipped on embellishments all together.

 Then I designed my 2 inside sheets. I wants one to keep track of the different materials I used on a lot of custom order and what the cost is for those so when I'm putting together a quote quick everything is right there!

Then I wanted a sheet to keep track of each persons individual order. I wanted to keep each customers notes all together with what they were quoted for price, what the actual cost of the project turned out to be as well as if I have received payment for the order or not. You know all that boring business type stuff!! 

So there ya go my friends! Thanks so much for popping by today to see my Pastel project!! Can't wait to see all of your beautiful projects in the next 2 weeks!!

Ooooooooo!!! I have an added bonus for you!!!
