spring... oh spring.... where are you?!


I am so ready for winter to be over. I'm tired of feeling cold all the time; I want flip flops back on my feet! And my son agrees with me.


Last weekend, my darling hubby ran out to my car to get the umbrella so Nate could stomp around the back deck in the rain. I had hoped the nice weather we'd had all that week would have held on for the weekend, but it hadn't... the rain came pouring down. That didn't stop Nate from having fun outside for a bit (and in his jammies no less)!


This page is made for the 3.18 sketch for Sketchy Thursdays. Head on over and check out the next sketch. Hope to see you playing along with us!!


I also made this page with a challenge from Scrapfreak's Birthday Bash Crop in mind. There is a challenge to break outside of our comfort zone. We looked at scrap styles we admire and why. I am always in awe of the people who layer and layer and layer their embellishments, as well as those that doodle and draw. So, here is my page for that challenge.

The Scrapfreak Birthday Bash Crop challenges last until the end of March. There is also a new members contest, so if you head over there after reading this and sign up, mention that Diana sent you so I can get points! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!


Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Earth Love (paper), American Crafts Dear Lizzy (rub-ons), ribbon, white paint, Sharpie-brown ultrafine point.
