Excited for spring!

Hey guys, Michelle here with a spring pocket page using the awesome Shine Bright Daily Diary kit. I have had so much fun playing with this kit, I can't even tell you!! And did you see Brenda's pages Wednesday using those great page protectors with the smaller slots that are perfect for the 3x3 cards in this kit?!! I totally have to get my hands on some of those!
But onto my pages for this week. The design team is creating spring layouts which is perfect for me since our weather here in eastern Washington has been absolutely beautiful the last couple weeks. We had one day with a little bit of snow but other than that we've had many days in the 50s and 60s which has me itching to get out & do some gardening (but not yet!)
For my title card on this page I used that great Simple Stories paper from the classic kit that had the long strips. I cut it down & added some embellishments for the title. 
I also took that great overlay with the gold dots and paired it with one of the 3x3 cards. And since it is see through I also added another 3x3 card to the backside so that it wouldn't look unfinished on my previous pages.

On several of my photos I cut up bits from the 6x6 papers that came in the kit along with other embellishments. And I just cannot get enough of those enamel dots & shapes!
On this page I used a different page protector that has some horizontal and vertical photo slots.
I've mentioned before that I don't do my Project Life albums in the 'traditional' sense. Instead of doing weekly spreads mine is more of a monthly view. So this layout covers the first 2 weeks of March and I'll probably do another spread with the rest of the month. It just works out easier for me to do my albums this way. 
And don't forget - our Springtime in Paris online crop starts next week!!! It will all be happening over on the Noel Mignon facebook group page!!
