Crafty Designers' Day at Craft Junkie Too - SPRING!

Hello everyone!!  Well, it's almost Spring!!!!  yep, I said Spring.....hard to believe already!  However here in NC, we've had the crazzzziest day it's 30 something and the next it's almost 80 degrees!  So yes, it's actually felt like spring some days, but I'm sure we have another month or so of cool weather.  But I surely cannot wait for spring!  We actually already had blooming daffodils last week....yes, in February!!  Like I said.....crazy!  :)

But Spring is the inspiration for our next challenge/theme for Crafty Designers Day at Craft Junkie Too! We were asked to create something represents Spring - flowers, new growth, get the idea.

So for this challenge, I decided to do a layout since I have so few of them completed!  I have soooo many ideas for layouts and even envelopes with pics in them and other memorabilia but they just haven't made it onto a page yet. :(  Poor Carley will be in school before I even get some of these pages done!
<Big sighhh>

Well onto my layout.....well Carley loves Sesame Street of course and so I decided to this layout using the Sesame Street Seasons and Font cartridges.  I loved the image of Big Bird chasing the butterfly with a net and of course love hearing Carley say "Big Buwrd"!  LOL

Of course, all of these pics are 'sweet memories' as noted by the metal embellishment....(I love that the little Hawaiian looking flower matches the ones on her little jacket!)

While we were outside that day, 4/15/2011 (she was 16 months old) we were checking out the tulips that had bloomed and she found herself a stick to play with....I called it her 'walking stick'!  LOL

On the bottom pic (above), she decided that she needed to rest on the front porch steps and posed to say "Cheeeeez".  Love that kid!!  :)

She was definitely enjoying her "walking stick"!  :)

Here, she had shed the jacket and picked one of the early bloom roses....I told her to smell it and she got this quirky little face!   Too funny!

Well I was glad to have completed another "Carley LO".....since I have so many of them to create! :)  Thank you so much for visiting today....hope you don't forget to check out the other creative ladies from Craft Junkie Too 

Happy Crafting and God Bless!

  3. What an adorable layout! The little extras that you've added are fantastic!
    I'm jealous that your daffs are in bloom! Daffodils are my favourite. They're poking through the soil here, but haven't yet bloomed. Spring IS in the air though!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
