First day of Spring

I made this 4x6 card for this weeks Project Life page.   I used the sketch #98 at "SKETCHES IN THYME PROJECT LIFE STYLE"   It was so fun putting all these little Springtime elements together to make my title card for the page.   Since my whole page was going to be about what we have been doing this week with the arrival of Spring (at least by date) we are still having some cold nights and grey days.   But non the less we are keeping busy with Spring cleaning around the house and cleaning our closet out from winter to summer clothes.  Plus we planted shrubs and roses to the back of the house to give it a more finished look and some color.   Going to take a couple of years for everything to grow a little taller and fuller but it already makes a major difference.  Then we cleaned out the pond around the fountain and set it back up to run again.   My best thing is that for the first time I'm going to grow some fresh herbs,  after I put them out in the hangers I realized I had room for two more pots.   Plus last night I made homemade tomato sauce for our pasta and I used some of the fresh oregano and basil in it.   I love the smell of fresh herbs plus the taste.

I am also going to enter this card at "SCRAPPING 4 FUN CHALLENGES" Their challenge running right now #111 is - Anything Goes with Flowers.   So since I have my flower garden across my picket fence on the card I thought this worked great for the challenge.
