I finally got a layout done this month. My whole family has been sick off and on all month (including me) . . . so I was busy taking care of them and myself and hadn't found the time to scrap for weeks! *sigh* There just isn't enough time in a day, is there? Anyhow, here is a layout I did to play along with a Round Robin at The Flying Unicorn. The picture is of my son and was taken in March on the first really beautiful, warm Spring day we had. He loved going to the park and the swing and I happened to get this picture in which I think he looks so sweet and thoughtful. I used a line from the song "Over the Rainbow" as the title to go along with his thoughtful expression.

I cannot believe it is April already - this year is going by so fast! Today brings the reveal of our second challenge at The Paper Mixing Bowl challenge blog. This month we have a traditional Easter treat for you - Hot Cross Buns! Even though the recipe/sketch are Easter-inspired, you do NOT have to do an Easter layout. Since my wedding anniversary is in April, I decided to use a wedding photo for my layout this month!
Every woman deserves to feel beautiful on her wedding day - and I did. I loved my wedding dress - I felt so happy and, if only for an evening, like the most beautiful woman in the world. Even though my fiancé and I had been together for years, our wedding day was so special. I look at my wedding pictures and I remember the joy and excitement of that day and how it was the start of a new chapter in our lives.Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you'll hop over to The Paper Mixing Bowl blog and play along with Recipe Challenge #2!
