Spring Is In The Air

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog


We’ve had daffodils out in our gardn for several weeks now, so I suppose it must mean that spring has come.  We’ve even had several quite pleasant days as far as weather goes.  So when I got my hands on the free “Think Spring” mini digital collection I just had to use it with some photos of daffodils I had.



This is a digital scrapbook layout put together using two photos I took a few years ago of the daffodils in our garden and a free mini-kit, “Think Spring”, that designer Janette Padley, of Dragons Lair Designs, gave as a freebie on the Dragons Lair Designs Inspiration Blog as part of her Sunday Showcase post yesterday.

I just took the items into My Craft Studio Software, played around with sizes, positions, etc., and saved as a .jpg.  I then used IrfanView to crop the image, re-size and watermark it.


Anybody can go to the DLD Inspiration Blog to get the freebie, and anybody can link up a creation they’ve made with any DLD items (doesn’t have to be made with the freebie, but it could be).  And if you do show us your creation by linking it up to the Sunday Showcase blog post you have a chance of winning something from the Dragons Lair Designs online store.

(Thank you for reading this blog post. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.) (Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)
If you can’t see the comment box then there should be a link that says “Responses” and clicking on that will bring up the box
