Blue Skies Smiling At Me

Today it’s been a gorgeous spring day


Inspiring spring weather
Spent some time out in the garden
Planting seeds
Transplanting seedlings
Getting ready for the summer growth
Spied these and smiled


Looking forward to munching on some apricots
Dave took the girls up to ‘the grassy spot’ to kick a ball or 4
While I finished off around the garden
And tonight Megan cooked dinner
Chicken and salad
But she enjoyed having the kitchen to herself
And felt in charge of it all…
While she did that I took the time to finish off this


Inspired by the new Kraft It Up Challenge, using a sketch.
For the life of me I couldn’t remember the name of the beach we were at, in the photo,
and Google couldn’t help so I just wrote


Wish Google maps were more helpful lol


Revisited 2 old techniques, some fluttering butterflies and masking tape (under the paint)


and tried something new, for me, no journaling


The rubons, and title, helped to say it all :)
And sometimes it’s what you don’t say that speaks clearer and louder :)

Pin It Now!
