Hi lovely scrappers, CAROLEANNE here with you today with my take on our latest challenge here at Berry71Bleu entitled SPRING FLING.

This month the challenge is anything to do with Nature/Spring.
I know my layout may look a bit mad but it is covered in flowers which reminds me of spring and I used the violet colour from the mood board. It is a scrap lift from a video I saw on Youtube inspired by Finnibair.
I have also made some spring-like cards, see below.

I first cut out the ladies image from the set of digi files from Marivic and glued it onto my background paper.
Then using hot glue I went crazy with adding lots of flowers, metal bits, chipboard pieces, pearls and buttons.
When everything was glued on I covered the whole thing in white Gesso. Then I dried it with my heat tool. I then started spraying like crazy with my mists! (Cover the ladies face first though). Then just add the lace, title and the cameo. Done.
I hope you like it.

Memories, It was the Perfect Day - Guest Designer - Anna Rogalska

Hello Everyone

We have a really amazing Guest Designer today and I know that she is probably no stranger to many of you! She is an amazing creator and one that I really admire! Welcome Anna Rogalska.

Hi Everyone! I'm Anna Rogalska. I live in Poland. I am a landscape architect, scrapbooker and in my spare time I am a keen runner. I've been scrapbooking for nearly 7 years. My scrapping style is a little bit of everything, romantic, shabby and mixed media. I love to try new techniques!
I make layouts, cards, tags and altered items. I am definitely a flower addict! I absolutely love flowers, chipboard, stencils and paints which are usually incorporated in most of my layouts.
You can find me here: 

I'd like to share with you a project I made for the April fun challenge called "Spring Fling". Cherry Blossoms are some of the most beautiful flowers, coming in bright colors. Blossom is a sure sign that spring has arrived.

The beautiful papers are from Prima and Bo Bunny. I've made my background using a stencil, stamps and different mediums. I've added pictures of cherry blossom to this layout and a lot of spring flowers. Hope you’ll enjoy! 

Here are some close-ups.

The layering, design and styling are just fabulous! Such a beautiful and soft page! ;-)

Thanks so much Anna for creating this page for us! ;-)
Please pop over to Anna's blog to see more of her designs and amazing inspiration!

There's a few more days to enter the Spring Fling Challenge and there's some gorgeous prizes up for grabs.

Remember - Guest Designer - Kasia Klehr

Hello Everyone

We are so thrilled to have a Kasia Klehr as our Guest Designer, here at Berry71Bleu.

My name is Kasia Klehr, I live in Poland with my 6 years old daughter and my husband :)
I started scrapbooking in 2009 when my daughter was born, with invitations and cards. Then I discovered layouts, albums and mixted media. I love creating projects with many layers, distressed and stamped with flowers, embellishments and pretty things in between! Scrapbooking  makes me happy and let me not get crazy in this crazy world!
Thank you for inviting me to be a Guest Designer!

I discovered Kasia's amazing work, as I was commenting through the the entries for another DT.

Kasia created a Spring/Nature Theme project for our Spring Fling theme this month.

Even though this is a vintage page, one can certainly see that Spring has sprung and the fussy cut blossoms are just amazing.

Here's a closer look at those amazing blossoms.

Isn't this photo just so pretty and carefree?

The layers and textures are just beautiful!

The cotton and lace are divine!

Thanks so much Kasia for this stunning page!

Mini Inspirational Quote Book by Kay

For this month's challenge--I decided to do something a little different.  I created a mini album & when I say mini--I mean 'mini'.  :-)  This little guy measures 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".  It has a total of 9 pages & each page is a pocket that holds a small tag.

The theme of the mini coincides with this months Spring Fling challenge hosted by Mandy.  The mini is decked out in florals & pastel colors that are identified with Spring.

On the cover I have an image from Zeus & Zoe that I've printed & turned into a little tag.   The pockets & tags in this mini could be used to house small photos but I've decided to use it to store inspirational quotes, sentiments & anything of this sort that has some sort of meaning for me.

Mini is based on the meandering mini tutorial--which is a mini made from one piece of 12x12 card stock.  There are several tutorials available on how to make this mini--either Google 'meandering mini tutorial' or do a search on You Tube & you'll find several tutorials.

Here you can see the pocket pages & a few of the tags that are inserted into the pockets.  I've used papers from the 'Renew' collection by Authentique to make this mini.

The mini is held together by a ribbon closure.

Now onto this months' prizes...
