I decided to make a couple of pages for my 8x8 scrapbook. I thought about Spring and all the bright colors that happen during that time and decided to use them. I also wanted it to reflect the Birthday theme. I'm going to add a couple of pictures after my daughter's birthday in May. I can't believe that I'm a head of the game this year. All the products used are Stampin' Up.

Here is a some blog candy.... I would love it if you'd follow my blog, but that would only be if you'd like to, but please leave a comment on each blog in the hop and of course mine with a way to contact you.
