Enjoy Life!

Good morning everyone!! Today is going to be a GREAT day!! Can you tell I am excited?! My daughter Kristin came home from college last night for Easter weekend and my oldest daughter, Courtney is flying in early this morning! This is the first time Courtney has visited us here in Texas (we have been here almost 8 months now!) and it is the first time I will have all 4 of my kids staying in the house together for nearly 2 years!! We have a lot of great things planned for this weekend starting with the Ranger's  game tonight! 

But, now on to business!! It is Friday which means we have another challenge for you at Frosted Designs! Our challenge this week is to include a bird and/or butterfly on your card, layout or project! How perfect is that this time of year?! I love all things spring and I really love listening to the birds sing!

Here is the layout I created....

This picture was taken at Myra's 40th birthday party. That is Myra and her husband Scott with me and my husband. I know that they are hard to see in the photo but there are birds all over that patterned background paper and there is another bird sitting in the tree on the right side of the layout. And of course, the layout would not be complete with a butterfly added! 

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye, Die Cuts with a View
Transparency: My Mind's Eye
Border: GCD Studio
Flowers: Prima
Brads: The Paper Studio
Ink: Quick Quotes
Crackle Accents: Ranger
Other: Envelope, buttons, twine, felt

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to link up your project at Frosted Designs for a chance to win this prize....

It is filled with Lily Bee papers and embellishments!! Our very own Debbie hand picked and donated this kit! So... you know it is full of yummy goodness!!

Oh... before I forget, I wanted to let all of you know that Frosted Designs is having it's very first Online Crop May 6-8 in honor of National Scrapbook Day!
