Spring is coming!

Like a lot of areas of the country, Pueblo CO has had some unseasonably warm weather the past couple of weeks, As transplants from north central Illinois, we love being able to go outside in a light jacket or shirtsleeves in March. The only downside is that warm, dry weather coupled with some winds of 35 miles per hour and higher creates conditions in which wildfires can start.

Our cat Lily decided to spend a recent warm but breezy afternoon perched on the window ledge in my scrap room. I took a few photos and created a layout using Stuck!? Sketches' March 1 sketch. Here's the sketch:


And here's my layout, using the January kit from Citrus Twist Kits:


This is another layout from last week, using an older sketch from Laura Whitaker and the February kit from Citrus Twist Kits:



I used the March 1 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and the February Citrus Twist kit for this layout of my two youngest granddaughters meeting each other for the first time. The background is from the Embossed White Cardstock Stack from Diecuts With A View:



And a  bit of news ... I've been chosen as Guest Designer for the April 15 layout at Stuck?S Sketches! I am sooo excited -- I love Laura's sketches, and the April 15 one is fabulous. Can't wait to show you my layout next month!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Such sweet photos and I like your light touch with the MM. Hmmm. or maybe that is the paper? It's hard to see online. As you move into Spring, we can't wait for Autumn with it's cooler, milder days. Lovely work and congratulations on the Guest spot. Thanks for joining in at Stuck?! Sketches!
