Alright, it is the second Wednesday of the month which means the monthly Samantha Walker blog hop is on!!!! If you have been hopping along you should have just arrived from Samantha Walker's blog. Today I have this fun layout featuring Samantha's brand NEW Heidi collection for Creative Imaginations. I knew when I opened my package of new goodies from Samantha the other day, these papers would be perfect for some spring pics :) Just love the reds & yellows in this line - so bright & cheery!!!

A quick close up of the title work showcases just one of the many AWESOME die-cuts in this collection. I cut the flower die-cut in half and then used some of the patterned paper to create half of one of these folded flowers that are all the rage these days. I glued a strip of patterned paper at the bottom and added a small title banner I typed & hand-cut. (BTW - it is lined up perfectly in real life but for some reason my scanner makes the strip appear not quite along the bottom - the dimensional objects are always tricky to scan).
