I Want To Paint In The Sunshine


but if I can’t, I want to watch the rabbits enjoy the sunshine as they paint

the big two set up camp in the cubby house with some chairs and reigned over the paints
But they reigned happily and shared, which was the main thing lol


this small one was fascinated by how the colour got on the brush


and this one just loved it all


The garden is also loving all the sunshine
In the past I haven’t had much success with corn but I have a few growing and was chuffed to spy this


last year we didn’t have any pumpkins at all, even with a few plants that grew but didn’t do much more than that
This year I didn’t plant any but the compost has given us a lovely supply of plants
Can’t wait to see what we get from this patch


wanted to scrap today but wasn’t motivated by any of my photos, even with the freshly printed ones
So I challenged myself to just scrap one
So I picked on from nearer the bottom of the pile
Was a photo that I knew what I wanted to do, just hadn’t had the oomph to start
So it came together quickly, which I like lol


Love the Prima vines, cut this one up and curled the stems


Love the new products that Prima have been showing for the CHA release, yum :)
Used some new Studio Calico alpha stickers


I distressed them with an emery board and then ran a black sharpie pen around the edge.
And finally the journaling :)


Going to be a hot day here tomorrow so hoping to enjoy some more time outside before it heats up

Pin It Now!

  4. We had so many magpies. It could almost be considered an invasion. It was so bad that the grocery store chopped down three of the last four trees in their parking lot as there was no safe place to walk or park without getting plopped on. The sound was deafening. Now that the trees are gone, I kind of miss them, but I like my clean car.

    Love the layouts,the flowers are perfect for this!
