PCW: Spring Projects inspired by a Song.

Hey Diva's, Happy Terrific Tuesday!! I hope you all are having an Awesome Day thus far as I know I am! I am Excited about todays Post as it allowed me to Tap into my Childhood. Today starts a New Challenge week over @ PCW. Our theme this week is Spring! We have all created different Spring type projects inspired by a Song.

I mentioned Earlier that my project took me back to my childhood and I bet your wondering how, Wellll let me tell you: When I was in Elementary School we had what was called the "Teddy Bear Parade" in my city. All the local children would come out to the Park and we would Parade around the Whole Park with our Teddy Bears. Some Dressed as Fairies, Others Dressed as Clowns, Some Brown Ones,Some Black ones and Some even Rainbow Colored. Some in Strollers and Some on Backs. Big Bears and Little Bears and Even In Between Bears (Ok I feel like Dr. Seuss that was last weeks Challenge, lol). At the end of the Parade we would all have a Big Picnic in the Park with our Teddy Bears and our Parents!

As a little Girl I looked forward to the day of the "Teddy Bear Parade". My Brown Bears name was "Mr. Henry" Respectably named after my Dad Henry. I lovvveeedddd that bear and I was so sad the Day I left him on a Charter Bus on a High School Field Trip (that's a whole other story for a different post). Me and Mr. Henry went Everywhere with each other and it was Always our time to shine @ the "Teddy Bear Parade".

So my dedication to Mr. Henry is this Card I made with him in mind:
(Not Pictured: Inside reads "For a Picnic" designed in Word)
Cuttlebug Folder: Preserves
Twine: From my Stash
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Paper: Kraft Paper (Recollections), Black (American Crafts: Foil)

So What do you guys think..Isn't he so steenkn Cute? I was so glad when I remembered I had gotten this Digi from Cooking With Cricut's 25 Days of Christmas, It was one of the Free Digi's that Melin offered. I thought what perfect time to use it then now when the birds are starting to Chirp again the Weather is AWESOME and you can smell Spring in the Air! The Perfect Song for this Digi would Definitely have to be the "Teddy Bear Picnic Song" Go Check it Out on Youtube!

Well that's it Guys, Please Come Join us this Week @ PCW for this Awesome Challenge!

Be Blessed and,
~Keep GOD 1st in Everything!~
