Spring has Sprung!

I hope! Woke up and the sun was shining. Took a look out the front window and green grass is clearly visible through the yellow stuff. I am so happy I raked all the dead stuff up last week, with all the rain we've had it's leaving my lawn look so nice. Now to tackle the backyard which looks like it is going to be quite the job to tackle. maybe I'll leave it for next week LOL.

Created this layout yesterday based on a sketch by Beck Fleck for the MME contest, so happy with the way it turned out. Used papers from the WRMK paper Pad "Teen Angst". No teenagers in this house, but the papers work well enough. The topic was "What's on my mind" and that theme worked perfectly with this picture because I love my sons eyes and his vision is something that is very important to us because he was born with Congenital Cataracts and also has Cortical Vision Impairment. So it is something that is always on my mind, whenever I look into his eyes.

Some blog candy!

Where do you go for inspiration? Some days I have no mojo and I like to go to a blog where I can be inspired to create. Some blogs/sites inspire by providing a sketch, a new technique to try or a yummy prize ... there are tons. I am looking to add to my inspiration sites so please leave a link to your favourite inspiration site (that I don't already have listed here, of course) and next Sunday I will get Mr. Random Generator to pick someone to win some stamps. Don't forget to check back next Sunday to see if you won!
