Spring Has Sprung

Now that the weather is beginning to get cold and the days are getting shorter, I find myself thinking ahead to Spring. I can't wait to plant colorful flowers in my garden and watch the leaves grow back on the trees.
Here's a scrapbook page I recently made for the November monthly layout challenge on SoCalScrap. The challenge was to use corrugated cardboard on your layout. I first painted the corrugated cardboard with a couple different colors of acrylic paint, then I sprayed several colors of Glimmer Mist (love that stuff!) on top of it. I also used Glimmer Mist to color some of the Prima flowers which started off as plain white. Those white Prima flowers are my favorite embellishment because I can make them any color I want. I love working with all these bright, happy colors!!!

ETA: Rochelle reminded me to mention that I won the challenge contest! :)

You're layout is beautiful! Congratulations!!!

BTW, I took a glance @ your other layouts & I CANNOT believe you're 40! You look amazing! Not to say you can't look good at 40, but you look much younger than that. Aw, shoot, I'm rambling...
