Peeps Last Forever...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 1!

I love Spring. And, though you can't smell it in the air just yet (there are a lot of other, less happy smells to be had in Manhattan!) I know it's coming soon. Today is Sneak Peek Day 1 for Taylored Expressions, and we a ton of fun projects to share that will get you thinking of all things Spring.

My first project features the second in the wonderful It's a Banner Day stamps and coordinating dies (there are 3 banners and 6 sentiments in this month's set). I paired them in my card with some cute little chick-a-dees from Favorite Peeps -- and do you see that darling patterned paper? That's from the new Spring Project Pantry kit and everything new you see today will be available this Thursday, March 3.

Now, I don't know about you, but I have a nostalgic fondness for those sugary, marshmallowy Peeps -- they look like they would taste heavenly, but I'm afraid I've outgrown them. However, I thought they would make an adorable decoration for spring, and I thought the adorable new Spring a la Carte stamp from TE would be perfect. I put two on because these yellow cuties reminded me of a pair of love birds. When summer hits, I'll put this away and I'm pretty sure that in ten years, those Peeps will still be exactly as they are today!
