We have butterflies and a few new LO's...

Some good news first! I am thrilled to have been chosen as a product tester for GCD Studios. I can't wait to get that box of goodies! How exciting! I am also excited to let you know I have 5 upcoming Scrapbook Trends publications as well as a LO coming up in Memory Makers. Yippee!

A few weeks ago I told you about us raising butterflies. Well they finally hatched and this past weekend was release day, just in time for Earth Day! Of course they quickly took to the Weeping Cherry Tree.

And the Pansy's I had just planted.

I dug into my MPCo. goodies and made a few new LO's. I love the MPCo. grow a flower challenge going on. Be sure to check out the blog post here for details.

Here is the flower I decided to grow:

And another one with my boys and their cousin.

I hope you got a chance to print out the freebie printables...love them! Here is one I used on this LO:

I just love the DT kit this month at I AM A Scrapaholic. Here is a LO I made with it. I love scrapping with Spring, Summer and water pictures so I am geared up to take lots of new pictures.


Last but not least check out Lisa's blog. She is offering up a great RAK...very fun. That about sums it up...thanks for stopping by and Happy Earth Day!

"Product Tester" sounds like a fun thing... I can never do DT and I never even try... deadlines and assignments do not fit in my crazy life... but a " Product Tester "...
