The weather here this past weekend was sunny, gorgeous and absolutely perfect for giving a person a serious case of Spring Fever! :D The snow is melting and patches of soggy grass are beginning to appear! I can't wait to be outside again! To take walks and play in the yard with the kids! It's so close I can taste it! :D YAY!!!
Sunday we left church early so that Kevin and I could drive to Malad, Idaho. Kevin was asked to speak at a Fireside there. He so graciously (???) volunteered me to speak alongside him. WHAT?!!! This is a farming town and they are definitely there to hear from a weatherman, not a scrapbooker! LOL! I kept it short and sweet and told Kevin he better not "volunteer" me ever again without checking with me first! LOL! I don't mind speaking in front of people, but I really don't know much about farming or weather, so I felt like what I had to say was pretty "random". LOL! :)
I've been playing with my Noel Mignon kits again. :D
I created this Spring Banner using the Love Story kit (sorry sold out). I used the scalloped circle mini book from the kit to make flowers to hold my "SPRING" letters. The pink ribbon and jewels were found in the dollar spot at Michael's awhile back. I also purchased the green K & Co. letters from Michael's this past summer. All the papers, brads, flowers and of course the mini book were from the kit.
Next I made this layout about Jensyn using the NEW Nightingale Kit (still available HERE). This is the first time I've played with the Distress Stickles. A bottle of Vintage Photo is included in the kit. I really love the chunky feel of the glitter and the way it enhanced the brown chip letters (by Basic Grey -- from my stash). Fun stuff! I need to experiment with it some more!
