ICR Holi Blog Hop

Welcome to Pichkari Holi Blog Hop by ICR Team. You can start at ICR Forum and get all the deets on the Blog Hop.

Here is some info about Holi On Wikipedia. Holi is also called the Spring Festival - as it marks the arrival of spring the season of hope and joy. The gloom of the winter goes as Holi promises of bright summer days. Nature too, it seems rejoices at the arrival of Holi and wears its best clothes. Fields get filled with crops promising a good harvest to the farmers and flowers bloom colouring the surroundings and filling fragrance in the air.

I always have associated Holi with bright colors and awesome get together with Family and Friends (and of course yummy food and sweets).

So to document the awesome Holi Party that we had at our friend's place just this last weekend, I created this scrapbook Layout using the March Sketch from ICR. Fun Sketch isn't it? There is plenty of time left to play along if you are interested.

I drew inspiration from our clothing colors and used some Blues and pinks on the layout and of course I had to use the bright Alphabet Stickers to celebrate Holi.

And I for sure wanted to create a card as well and again I did a card for this month's ICR Challenge #27 - One Layered card with Repeated Stamping.

Again, there is still time for you to play along, we would love to see your card creations. I did my own template in Word for this card and placed the text (using text box) and then printed it out and then stamped the PTI Mehendi Medallion Stamps over the card base. I would redo this card again and probably add some sequins or gem stones to add some more glitter.

I hope you enjoyed the projects and would love to hear from you and also see your creations in ICR.
