♥♥♥CottageCutz Darling Dies I used♥♥♥
Spring Release:
then i used the CottageCutz Die:


♥♥♥On the 1st page here I used the Picket Fence border with ribbon ran through it. I also used the flowers from the Tree of Nature. Next I used the mini Butterfly and Mini Ladybug. clouds are from My Little Shoebox.

♥♥♥for my next page, I used the DARLING tree of Nature and another DARLING kitty! I cut tons of flowers, and glued them together and used a Viva Pearl Pen for the centers. Super easy to do!!!!

♥♥♥On my last page I used the beautiful CottageCutz Springtime Window Die, also used the Grasshopper and the Dragonfly. the sun was made with My little shoebox precut pieces.
