Waiting for Spring...

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri GuillemetsHello! It's March! Spring is on it's Way!! :) I don't know about you, but I so Tired of Winter this year, I want to get outside, to shed my layers and soak up some Vitamin D courtesy of the sun!! I am NOT, however, looking forward to the time change on the 13th! UGH!!!

To lighten up the winter dreary feeling I have going on I grabbed a few of my favorite things...Prima and Zva Roses, Ribbon, Gems, Pearls, Webster's Pages Paper and Stardust Stickles. I was also intrigued by my newest toy...a pretty hat pin my friend Michelle sent me! (I cut the pointy part off with some needle nose pliers to shorten it and to avoid a repeat of her recent injury!) http://planetsmilies.net/winking-smiley-9359.gif

I love this paper...see that adorable bunny? It is a more muted color palette than most spring designs, but it brings to mind sunny, cool Spring days to me! And see the clock they hid in there...lol, Daylight Savings!
