Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway


Thanks for visiting my blog for the Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop! I hope you've been finding lots of great inspiration today! You can find more info on the Altenew Card blog where the hop is hosted. 

Here is the layout I created to share with you today. 



I used the Spring Showers Cover Die and the Altenew Live Your Dream Collection to create lots of beautiful flowers for my background.


It was definitely a labor of love, but I find that kind of thing incredibly relaxing!



I used bits and pieces from the die cuts and puffy alphabet stickers as well to embellish around my photo. It's a picture of me when I was two that I just came across and had to scrap!

I created a process video so you can see just how it all came together.



Here are all the details for the awesome giveaways and the other people who are part of this hop for Day 2!
