Gothic Arches - Spring

Hello my sweets..
How is everyone's week going.  Well I hope!

I am playing along with Gothic Arches this week..  This is the
first time I have played along with them.  I have been wanted to play
in one of there challenges for sometime now.

And this weeks theme is perfect..
SPRING.

You know I had to take a break and play with some different colors for
awhile..  If you know what I mean.  If you don't you can check out my last post..
I have been knee deep in blue DP..Seam Binding, Cute little blue buttons, and lace.
I am finally done with most of the pages of my mini album.
Now I just got to put it all together..  I will show it off soon!!

Till then here is the Gothic Arch I have created..



I had the most difficult time trying to make this arch..
I think I needed a template or something..  Don't look to close you
will see it's not to even..  I roughed up the edges to make it look better..



I have had this image for sometime but have never used it yet..
I can't remember which site I got it from.  But I just love it..
It says spring time all over it.



And what would be a spring theme without a flower..



I had a blast breaking away from the blue paper for awhile..
I hope to play with Gothic Arches again..
And maybe next time I will have better luck with my Arch.

And Thank you for all your kind comments.
I really do appreciate them..

Hugs, Linda

Ooo! I really do like this! I think it's because of the colors. Your background looks great, but when you add the image, the colors from that just blend so nicely! Great job! Now I want to go to Paris!
