I thought it would be fun to make the previous ladybug photo mat to the next level by making it into a two page layout. Here's what I came up wit. What do you think? I again used pattern # 30. Right now you can buy this pattern at the paper piecing store for 50 cents.

My Little Ladybug is for the weekend Challenge at Preciouspiecings.com.
As the snow fell outside my window this morning a Lucky Ladybug landed on the flower I have near my computer. It was a sign to remind me that Spring is on its way.
I made up some flowers and pieced together the little lady bug which is pattern # 030.
The lettering came from a couple of Cricut cartridges.
If you love ladybugs Lisa at Precious Piecings has at least 5 ladybug like patterns.They are numbered 030,364,343,630,and 693.
Oh remember to enter the weekend Challenge, as a lucky fan will be drawn randomly for a free pattern. Good luck everyone.

I heard that song not sure of the title but is goes along something like this We are family, Brothers and Sisters , ya that's all I can remember. Anyway the tune is stuck in my head which is good because it inspired me to make this fun quick Family tag. I love how Lisa's Precious Piecings patterns piece together so easily.This card used 2 patterns they were # 789 Jac and 790 Ed. The bling Family border is from Michaels dollar bin. The whole tag took maybe 20 minutes to make. Fun and easy who could ask for anything more.

Our April Fools Day Snow storm left 6 inches of cold wet slush. I had a real Spring hankering going on. I love the spring like colors of this paper. Pattern #032 Butterfly was the perfect design to make me feel that Spring was in the air and soon we would see things Blooming all around us. Yes Spring is here.
