EARTH LAUGHS

We all know how EARTH LAUGHS. Exactly three weeks before I took the photo in today's layout, I posted THIS layout:

42513
It seemed that the way our April was proceeding, we would never experience spring. But, wonder of wonders, we now have trilliums, marsh marigolds, jack-in-the-pulpit, among many other early spring beauties in bloom.

I found a perfect cluster of False Rue Anemone, a member of the buttercup family, on my woodland path, and took a few moments to attempt to capture their simple beauty. These little spring gifts made me so happy, I decided to make them the star of a spring MDS (My Digital Studio) creation. The components of this layout were a free download that Stampin' Up! gifted us some weeks back.



Speaking of MDS, Stampin' Up! has a special digital promotion going on right now, through June 15.

Do you recall that every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! releases brand new downloads for MDS users? This past Tuesday, May 14, there was even a FREEBIE to download to your MDS arsenal! You can check out all the latest Tuesday downloads here: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/CategoryPage.aspx?categoryID=556

Ah
Spring
Smiles.

  3. Funny weather. We have a saying here in Connecticut. "If you don't like the weather in Connecticut, wait 5 minutes". :) Love the Spring picture. Linda
