Spring Has Sprung???

well its March 26th and its beautiful here - finally! melting and warm and sunny but i am not holding my breath, it may not last but i'm "glad" to see the mud.

What a week, busy busy with our church supper thing that went well and i must say i'm glad its over, march has been stressful and i'm looking forward to a slower paced April with spring break from school in the middle there.

Poor Lindsey has got the chicken pox, she is not happy, about them or missing school but that is life, better now than as an adult like i was, NOT fun!!! I haven't dared try and snap a picture yet but i will, have to document the event somehow.

Here is a layout i did last week with a photo i played with in PS keeping her eyes blue as they are. A flower explosion on this layout "She", maybe thats my wishing for spring coming out on paper!

"Celebrate Every Detail" was fun to do, did it for a challenge or two on the boards and played a bit with some corrugated cardboard and stuff.

Oh and we have puppies, we thought we had lost our dog Zoe but she was only in hiding having two puppies, they are so cute already and the eyes are starting to open so will be getting pictures as soon as i can.

la la la la life goes on.....

oh blah de oh blah da life goes on yeah, la la la la life goes on. And it surely does, no matter how much we complain about the weather, can't change it and its still winter here oh yeah, still snowing. I got my hair cut, or rather cut shorter as the cut two weeks ago just wasn't short enough and was driving me nuts. Went to my first physio appointement and got some home exercises to do. THe therapist said the part of my back that was injured is one of the hardest to work on and get back to full mobility and all i can do is stretch and strengthen the muscles around the area so i will try. Enjoyed a trip to the thrift shop that i haven't been to for ages, unloaded 5 bags and came home with one new one, mostly stuff for dd but i found a few treasures for myself..
this week has been busy, and the week ahead will be even moreso and i am already tired thinking of it. i don't suspect i'll get any scrapping and very little chatting done so i'll leave you with this page i finally finished after 4 days on the table. for a challenge at the Clubhouse based on a sketch as well as one at Love2Scrap with the title being This I know.... check out my galleries for the details on this layout.

and i can't believe i haven't posted since i found out the results at Timeless, i made the design team there, whooooo, thrilled to bits and can't wait to get started. Great group of gals and lots of talent there too. was a fun race and love the results of the challenges put forth each week.

gallery is operational again so i guess i'll be sharing my latest creations there as time allows. Oh and dont forget to come chat wednesday nite with Elsie Flannigan on L2S, should be fun, just hope i get home from town in time to participate.

Well its march, which means St Patricks' day is soon upon us and so i salute and give hugs to my special irish Mother In Law this month and have a few green things i'll share over the month. I am thinking green, and wishing for spring, just a hint even would be nice but its nowhere near, still have feet of snow around here and no sign of it quitting.

Whats new on the scrap front, well, Love 2Scrap forum is up and running again, love that its back, the gallery up soon too we hope! Planning a cybercrop there just not sure on the weekend quite yet. March is a hectic month so not sure how much extra scrapping I will get done but i am sure going to try.

Round 6 is just winding up at the Scrapazing race at Timeless. Fingers are crossed and will be an anxious day tomorrow when we find out who wins, who made the team, etc etc. It has been a blast i've done some things that i normally would not have tried and so pleased with all the creativity from everyone and myself. I love a good challenge and Share girl you rocked out with those. THANKS to the whole team for this game, it was a highlight that got me through the dreary winter blahs for sure. The tin can album, the transperent card, those were just a couple of the goodies i made last couple rounds.

I also managed to complete all 8 challenges put forth by the Scrapbookersclubhouse team and i say thanks to Nicole and the dt for a great motivational month. i LOVE getting so much done.

LOVE MUCH i just did today, its page 2 in my 12x12 calendar that is going to be "color themed" so of course February had to be red. can you guess the color for march??? :)

Teachers convention is this week wich means a short week for the kids and a night away for me. looking forward to some learning, fun, shopping and hanging out with the girls when we are there. I got my hair cut, still not sure if i am convinced its the best cut, will give it a couple more days and see.

I enjoyed my guest DT for february at Savvynsassy as well and loved the ribbon i had to work with. OUCH was another one i created using the brown ribbons from the Kit.
