April showers bring may butterflies.

I hope everyone had a fun, happy, and exciting NSD. Blake had a birthday party to attend, so I didn't get much done. Only 1 page! My challenge example for scrapbook challenges that goes up later this morning. My challenge is an easy one.... April is over and May is here, with that comes flowers and butterflies. So its simple your page must be adorned with at least 1 butterfly and 1 flower. Optional twist is to use a white background. This challenge is also for If the shoe fits challenge site to use green and purple. Purple is a hard color for me to scrap with, not sure why.







The new sketch goes up today also. At first, I was so lost with this sketch, but once I started playing it with, I love it.









Here is my finished LO. Its digital, bc I was waiting on my photos to arrive in the mail. Instead of using 4 small pic I chose to use embellishments there and 1 large pic in the middle. I like it.








For the month of May, Pamela lined up an awesome sponsor for the lucky winner. Studio Calico , check out the prize here.

As far as the big adventure of going back to school, I think I have decided on becoming a Medical Assistant. I know this is not for everyone, but I think it could be right for me. I'm kinda excited!!! Only thing now, is to worry about the Compass placement test. I have forgot so many math formulas and how to's. More later....Toddles!

FABULOUS job with the purple. I too have a hard time with that color too. You did a great job. Love your digi one too.

We also want to go the the Atl. aquarium also, but with Joey's crazy new company that has taken over, finding the time is a pain in the rear! Forsure though, if we start to make plans I'll let you know so we can try to met up.
