I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring to arrive!   It has been a super cold winter here and I am counting down the days until the seasons change!  Warm sun, green grass, colorful spring blooms and everything else that comes along with it!  Your challenge this month is to create a spring themed project!  Whether you use a fresh spring color palette or use spring imagery, pull out all the stops to help elude the winter blues!



 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am EST and 11:30pm EST on February 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge".

-Customers & participants alike can peruse all of the links and absorb all of the amazing inspiration that will be shared!

-After you have made your way through the list, simply return to our forum and participate in all of the fun!

-You can chit chat with everyone in the Blog Hop forum! Take this time to praise your peers efforts, discuss anything new you might have learned and which projects really offered something unique!

-The three random blogger participant winners will be announced Wednesday morning on our forum and highlighted here on my blog!

-You can enter our Blog Hop Forum contest. There is a special thread posted in our forum specifically for this purpose asking a question. Please only post once, as the winner will be picked via the Random Number Generator. The forum contest will end at midnight EST and the winner announced Wednesday morning.

-Create a project while you are here, using the new inspiration you have gathered from the Blog Hop. You can post your projects in the gallery, even if you do not have a blog! 




Nadine (Wahinelei) used the new Garden Grace paired with a spring color scheme of oranges and greens to create this fabulous card.  The three stripes blocks are a wonderful modern contrast to the sketched style of the roses!


Jennifer S created a beautiful watercolored background in pale purples and pinks for her submission.  The choice to heat emboss the frame really helps to make the sentiment pop from the page.


Barb Kirkwood paired up some stunning spring colors for her creation.  I am totally smitten with the way she layered all of the different leaves from Leave It Be to help give more emphasis to her flowers.

Congratulations to the three winners!  Please send a note to customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate to!  And thank you to everyone for playing along!  There were some amazing creations shared and I think it is safe to say that we are ALL ready for spring!
