Simply Scrapping Crafts April 2011 Blog Hop!!!

Hello and welcome to my very first Blog Hop!!! I am sooooo excited!

My friends at Simply Scrapping Crafts are having their first Blog Hop and of course I wanted to be part of it.
The challenge was to create a project (card, layout, altered item, etc.) with the theme "Seasons."
I live in sunny Puerto Rico and the season is spring so that was my inspiration.
Here is my inspiration piece:

Card recipe:

Martha Stewart patterned cardstock
K & Company brads
Double sided tape
The image is SCENEIT ladybugs from bugaboostamps and it was colored with coloring pencils.
Hope you like it.
I did a second project inspired by spring, it’s a treat box.This box has a window and you can fill it with your favorite sweets or a small gift.

Follow this link for the tutorial.
Now let's have some fun!!!
I have a little something sweet to celebrate: Blog Candy!

One person randomly drawn will receive everything in the photos above.
