Spring brings more temperate weather and everyone just naturally wants to spend more time outdoors.
Roxi used DIY Dude by Sus Designs, Photo Bunches Set2 and Paper Blenders 2 by Coppercurls Designs to showcase their building a tree house at their new home. Roxi’s journaling reads: “n 1998 we decided to build a new house, which would mean leaving the tree house at our present place. But Dad promised a new one, complete with air-conditioning so he would be comfortable spending the nights sleeping out there with Kevin. We rented a ‘cherry picker’ and had a blast building it. Even Kevin helped saw and hammer parts together. Our best kitty ever, Boots, kept us company. Of course he couldn’t miss out on the activities.” I certainly admire their carpentry skills and the new tree house is awesome.
Danna used Let It Shine by Sus Designs to journal about “The Birth of a Surprise Landscape.” As Danna explains “We bought our new house in the middle of winter so when Spring arrived the landscaping was a surprise as the plants and flowers began to bloom.” What a gorgeous surprise and a lovely way to welcome spring in bountiful coat of many colors that mother nature paints for us outside beckoning us to enjoy the delights of spring.
Sara states that “One of my favourite parts of spring is the appearance of certain flowers. In the UK, it was crocuses, but home in Bermuda, it’s the tiny blue Bermudiana that announces the arrival of spring!” She used Happiness and Happiness Mini Kit by Ruth Davis for her delightfully springy page called Welcome Spring. I love the bright colors and joyful yet playful nature of Sara’s layout.
Elaine used April PU Grab bag by Sus Designs for her page about her granddaughter Piper taking a spring walk near her home. The return of warm weather is just perfect to be outside and enjoying the weather.
For Erica, spring is a time of celebration and she created some adorable hybrid candy covers using Pocketful of Sunshine May 2010 Guild Encore Kit and Little SomeBunnies to Love by Julie Mead. What sweet treats they are!
Erica lives in southern Florida so her spring is much warmer than most of the United States and she is already thinking about summer in April. The weather looks fabulous to me and I expect that the warmth of Florida is appealing to a lot of others, too! Erica’s page called Summer Moment focuses on the Golden Memories spent with family and uses Bluebell Mini Kit and Bluebell Border Clusters by Cheryl McCain Designs.
Next up is a bright and sunny page using Summer So Fine Collab Kit and Keep You In Stitches with Templates by Julie Mead. Erica, quite appropriately, calls this page Summer Fun. I know that I’m looking forward to warmer days focused around the pool although it’s just a little chillier here and I won’t be swimming until the pool gets much warmer.
Once again, warmer weather and longer days means more time to spend outdoors doing projects, working in the garden, and just relaxing. Don’t forget to grab your camera as you spring out the door!
