Hello crafty friends, 

Today we have a special guest designer Laura and it is the reveal of the March Mood Board! Hope you will join us, be inspired and play! 

(All images were located from pinterest)

Here is a little something about our guest designer and her fabulous layout! 

I live in the Laurentians in Quebec, with my hubby, 2 twin teen sons , and a 5 year princess., with our fur baby, Thunder, our black Lab.
I began scrapbooking when my sons were toddlers, almost 14 years ago. I wanted to preserve the moments, good and bad, and not just with pictures. My family is definitely my source of inspiration---can you blame me?? never a dull moment around here!!
I enjoy crafting. It relaxes me, makes me smile, can also drive me crazy, when you have an idea and it doesn't come out correctly on paper, you know?? I love paper. I pet paper. Oh please! you know I am not the only one! :)

That is it in an nutshell! I love scrapbooking 12x12 pages, that is my preference, but I have dabbled in all sizes. I have started Project Life, my way, this year. It is coming along alright. Still have to get the hang of

Here is Laura's take on the mood board. 

Laura was inspired by the flowers on the mood board and all these beautiful flowers were hand cut by Laura! Please make sure to stop and leave her some love on her blog. Laura's blog. 

Thank you so much for joining us Laura! Love your fabulous creation! 

And here is what the Diva's created this month! 


When I saw the images of the Mood Board the first thing I thought of was The Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime Collection that was used in the one photo, it's one of my favorites, so I used some of the papers from the collection in my card!! Combined with the other photos it made me think of the start of spring. It is a magical time of year when everything is beginning again, renewing from the ice and cold of winter to a rainbow of colors and smells! What could be more magical than that! So I created a card where looking out a window you can see the fairies dancing and rejoicing with the beginning of spring!! The Queen of the Fairies is greeting and announcing the "News of Spring" with her magical wand!! I hope you like my creation! I hope that you have as much fun as I did! 

I adore Trish's take on the challenge! 


I love the colors of the mood board, especially the blue. The flowers and butterflies made me think of blossoming spring. As I was going through some pictures found this one of my daughter whom had actually written "S loves mommy" and created a family picture. She was only 4 in this picture and could not believe how she was blossoming. 


Lori was inspired by the flowers and the vibrant colors. (Wow can you believe the talent! There are no words) 

last but not least we have our own ....

Scrappin' Sheila.
