Spring Time Prep
The sign that spring is approaching at our house is when we go out and cut down all the prairie grass.
We leave it in full growth during the winter because even when not green it is very decorative out in the beds. But then pre spring is the time to cut it all back so during the spring and summer growing season it grows up taller and fuller each year and turns nice and green once again. As much as I
love the look of the grasses year round, I'm so glad we only planted 3 of them because they do get bigger and each year its a bigger back breaker to cut them down and clean up and get ready for spring. Yesterday the temp got up into the 50's so it was the right day to go out and get it all done.
For this layout I used the sketch at "Let's Capture Our Memories" I used a textured beige yardstick for the background to go with the look of the grasses in the winter. And then I just went to my scrap drawer to pull out papers that were a little more colorful and would represent the color we start to see in the spring. A couple of embossed butterflies for embellishments and I was set.
In one of the yahoo scrapping groups I'm in one of our monthly prompt challenges this month was to use 3 different alphas for our title on a layout so that is why I did the title this way.
