Oh what a lovely spring we've had here in the Northeast!I managed to get a few pictures of my cherry trees just before the big windy day came and blew off all the blossoms, and I am thrilled that the pansies I put in last fall wintered over and bloomed as well!
The Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted DesignsI made a cute row of upside down umbrellas into a banner for my layout! This layout will be the left side of my 366 Art Journal, when I get the calendar side ready to go I'll post the full spread. (See this post for more info on the 366 Art Journal)
I used this awesome sketch from the Page Maps blog and entered Becky's challenge this month:
