Spring has sprung and a LO!

Spring is finally here and I could not be more excited! The trees are blooming...

I saw a few of my crocus's poking through the mulch. The weekend was beautiful and my hubby took full advantage of it planting seeds, pruning the apple tree and potting some blueberry bushes. Jack had his first riding lesson of the season and took off jumping.

It did not take him long to get right back to it and he was all smiles!

And determined!

This weekend was also Nick's opening soccer game. The boys were so excited because they got to play on the local high school full- size turf field under the lights! Even better they beat the other team 6-0...great way to start off the season! I did not get any good shots but I am hoping that will change...my night photography skills are not the greatest!

I am starting a photography class in just a few weeks at a local college...since I did not have any great photos of the game I will share a soccer LO I did recently.

Check out the acrylic star by Want2Scrap. I am becoming addicted to their embellishments!

Jack has decided to give lacrosse a try this season...so I have a new sport to learn. He looks so cute all dressed up in all his protective gear. I will need to take a picture soon. The fact that they hit each other with sticks has me a bit nervous but he seems to love it so I will have to learn to deal with it. LOL!

Over on the Pebbles Blog they have posted a fun challenge! Be sure to check it out...a Pebbles prize pack is up for grabs so it is a great time to scrap some of those spring photos.

GCD Studios posted a great video of Melody Ross using the new Chipart...check it out here.

I will have LOTS of projects to post later this week using Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker and Traditions Studio. Of course we all know Nikki but Traditions Studio is a fun "outside the box" scrapbooking company. They have great gift ideas too!

I just got a sneak peak of Marks Paper Company's newest digital kit! It will be released next week on 2peas...a must have for sure! Stacy has also added some fabulous new designers to the team! A very big welcome to you all...
