March Dango Reveal

March is nearing an end and spring has definitely sprung in the great Northwest. Today is such a classic spring day here-- In the past 2 and 1/2 hours, the weather has changed from sun peeking through the clouds to rain showers and blustering wind. I know we need the rain. I can't wait for the grass to green up. The tulips and crocuses have popped up and are starting to bloom. Woodpeckers have been mistaking our house for their own as they do every spring. My favorite piece of spring though, our family finally has an entire week to enjoy one another's company! Very needed around this house! :)

With grading, reporting and conferences, I didn't get a chance to show the reveal for SCRaPDANGo here. The kits are already out, and you should head over to the SCRaPDANGo Store and see if there are any more left for sale. I had so much fun with this month's Spice kit! I <3 Jillibean Soup so very much! Her papers are so versitle! I was also sooooo excited to finally get my hands on some currogated alphas! Oh man! What fun!

Here's the amazing kit itself...

Without further ado, here are my March Dango creations!

I've been wanting to do something with this pic for some time now! Just love how it turned out. I also just added some Tim Holz Glossy Accents to the red Jenni Bowlin letters. Makes them pop a bit more than what you see here.

Signs of spring around our place! If you look closely, you'll see the woodpecker making a real home for himself!

This is my version of Lynn's sketch. I don't usually do much that is asymmetrical and initially struggled with this one. I decided to stay out of my box and go with the original sketch. This is now my FAVORITE LO of the entire kit!

Here are some fun cards. I stretched myself again and did a little paper piecing. I even dusted off the Cricut for that little birdy. (He's actually the shadow affect of the ducky character on the Doodlecharms cartridge!)

I free-handed this tree trunk. Again, not something I normally would have done! So proud of myself!

I had so much fun making cards with this kit! I'm going to have to make quite a few more!

Check back later this week to see the April Kit sneak peeks! They're gonna be awesome again!

~Til next time <3
