Spring

Today was our first day here in Minnesota above 70. It sure didn't feel like it: strong wind made it seriously unpleasant to be outside, especially if you have longer hair like I do. Still, I went to church to cut down the garden I tend. Nothing is yet blooming in my church garden, but it sure is blooming here at my house.
I made a layout using the colors from Stacy Julian's color challenge to scrap my crocuses. I don't really like to scrap purple, but I had an old piece of Autumn Leaves paper, so decided to go for it. Sorry for the dark photo--I finished at about 6 P.M. (ETA: I replaced it with a better lit--and better focused--photo):

I should mention that I am trying to use as many green buttons as I can--my jar is overflowing. These buttons are magic, though--whenever I empty the jar and refill it with the remaining buttons, it's fuller than the last time. Terrific.

I scrap a spring garden photo every year. Here was last year's:


I am partial to quotations, maybe because I'm an English teacher. I got many from Quote Garden. The one on the first layout is by Anne Bradstreet:

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”

The second layout took a quote by Osho:

"Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are."

If you want to be happy, go outside, take some beautiful pictures of spring in all its potential, google Spring quotations, and make a layout with as many pretty products as you can. Play, and enjoy the spring.

I love both layouts (design wise, etc.)
I REALLY love the quote on the first one. It is VERY relevant to my life right now.
