SEM's Spring Blog Hop!

MARCH 29th - 31st

Hi SEM Blog Hoppers! Cara here...and I'm so excited to be part of this Scrapping Everyday Miracles Spring Blog Hop !

The project I created is a double-page 12x12" layout because I had so many cute photos from Easter last year. That was our first year without my husband's mom...she was a big part of our Easters, and was very missed, but we had a delightful little distraction from the sadness...our own little Easter bunny (a classroom pet that we bunny-sat for the weekend). Butterscotch was indeed one of our Easter Blessings!

Here's the first page (a little closer up) the cute little tags from We R Memory Keepers...I took the cue from those for my photos and rounded all the corners.

And here's the second page...

What do you love most about Spring? I am not much of a winter or snow person at all, so I really appreciate all the green-ness that Spring brings...and I love the spring flowers...daffodils & grape hyacinths are my favorite!

Where do you live? Boise, Idaho, USA. And I love my city--the "City of Trees"! It is a super family-friendly city with lots of gorgeous parks and 25 miles of "greenbelt" (an alternate transportation trail along the banks of the beautiful Boise River). We also have the largest ethnic Basque community in the US (15,000) and have a great Basque Block where the Basque Festival is centered every five years.

I truly appreciate you visiting my blog today and I'm offering a special little prize pack. Just leave a comment for me and I'll randomly choose a winner from all the comments left by Sunday, March 31st at 11:59pm. The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 6th.
Mini "Spring" Clear Stamps by Hampton Arts
Mini Alphabet Wooden Stamp Set by Hampton Arts (these are awesome for short journaling on your layouts or custom stamped messages on your cards)
Yellow (my favorite Spring color!!) Scrapper's Floss by Karen Foster

And don't forget that on the SEM Blog, we're going to choose a Grand Prize winner from a randomly chosen Design Team member's comments! Winner to be announced Saturday, April 6th.

If you've missed any stops along the way make sure you go back and comment for your chance to win...have fun hopping!
