I'm going to start on a Spring/Easter mini today. Usually when I get an idea for an album, it starts with a single stamp or a piece/collection of paper. My inspiration this time was the Graphic 45 collection, "Once Upon a Springtime". Of course, I know I will probably end up putting several other lines in as well. Once I had the paper, I went through my stash for items that would coordinate. This morning I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up several things shown below. This is just what I am starting with. Some things from the pile will never make it into the album, and some things will be added as the project takes shape.
I'm really excited! The last several projects I did were in dark, somber colors. Now I get to work with lighter (dare I say "girlie"?) colors!
