Soooooo much for spring

What is with the weather, yuck, cold and windy and snow in a bit, just when i thought i could start wearing my sandals and capri's old man winter returns... but hopefully not for long. Anyway, i've had time to scrap, staying inside and warm, long weekend.... so not all is lost. Poor dd and her classmates (along with dh/chaperone) had to turn around on their way to jasper for an environmental seminar thing due to bad roads) so i'm sure they are disappointed but better safe than sorry.

Can i tell you how much i LOVE the april Scrapbook Fanatics monthly kit, unfortunately its sold out but be sure to tune in May 1 for the next kit, they get better every time. some lo's i did with it. Been cropping along with Savvy N Sassy for their Olympic crop and got lots done!! Anxiously awaiting my life Preservers kits to arrive, they never disappoint, and in just 6 days i'll be enjoying Em's hospitality and cropping with 10 other gals for the weekend and i can't wait. So enjoy your weekend and hope you aren't getting hit with another winter blast like we are.

wants to be here and is trying hard despite a few freak snowfalls, some chilly nights and still a fair bit of white when i look outside over the valley, but it is changing and i'm glad to hear the birds singing, saw at least a dozen hawks yesterday on the way into town which must mean the mice are easy pickings with less snow around, and the pussy willows are popping (and i must wander outside and pick a bunch for the table). Busy, yep, as usual, we had a wonderful Easter break though, at Mom's in Kelowna, visiting with my brother and his adorable busy little (almost 3 yr old) guy, what fun. He loved to play chase and cars and have mitchell bounce him on the bed and our time was too short but better than nothing. lots of pics and lo's to follow of course since there were camera's in his face all the time!!! We did an egg hunt which he understood AFTER trying a chocolate egg and realizing what it was all about. The flu bug invaded and hindered our time there but we managed to do some junking and visiting friends/family and so it was well worth the drive.

Now its the final stretch before summer, counting down the days till i'm done my job as are the kids i'm sure. They wrote some midterms last week and got their report cards yesterday and did an excellent job once again, lots to be proud of!!! I'm playing in my scraproom when i have time, looking forward to a girls scrappy weekend coming up soon and can hardly wait to meet up with these ladies again. Here are a few of my latest projects to make you smile and think spring.
