Gardeners' Digest Blog Hop

Whew! It's just one hop after another around here! I guess that's how it is in the spring--everyone is getting crafty!

I have a layout to show you!! It just hit the Garden Girl Gallery over at 2peas. It's my easter layout! I went with pastels--as usual! There's some Hero Arts stamps, Echo Park papers, Pink Paislee diecuts, and some random gems and buttons. I love doing two page layouts for holidays--we usually have so many pictures that I need to scrap anyways so I just make them small and put them on two pages. On this layout, I chose to leave the right side for just my title and journaling.

I've been really inspired lately by so many things--pinterest, blogs, new products, etc. But I'm just in love with Laura Craige's AMAZING cards. Look at this new one from her:

Love all of it--the papers, the brads, the flower, the little buttons. SOOO cute! I really need to break out my card stuff and get to work!!

And now for my new FAVORITE picks from the Two Peas Store:


Time to hop along!! 

Thanks for joining me! :)

Kandis - this book is absolutely gorgeous! I need to get my hands on it :) I love all the scrumptious goodies on the front and can't wait to see the inside :)

And now I have a picture share.... here's my boys playing basket ball at Grandma and Grandpa Smith's this past weekend. They LOVE to play on the old hoop that's been in their driveway forever! Logan loves to play the most, but Landen will jump in sometimes and play around.
