Spring Blog Hop

Welcome!  If you arrived here from Julie's site then you are in the right place!  If you want to start at the beginning, hop over to Jenn's blog.  If you get lost along the way, just follow the links on the bottom of this post to get back on track!

One sure sign of spring, here in Maine, are the puddles!  We all know how children are drawn to puddles!
This is a layout I did with my Grandest Daughter and her friend, puddle jumping, while we were boiling maple syrup!  I used the Nate's ABC cartridge for the puddle boots and sentinment. As you can see in the pictures, our snow piles are still here!



I'm offering a little blog candy today.  Since Paper Wishes has been sponsoring my blog and our Creative Sisters Monday Challenges this month, I am offering one of the following books.  "JOURNEY GIRL"  will go to one lucky winner who is #1 a follower and #2 leaves a comment under this post!  I will draw the winner randomly next week.


As you can see they offer quite a few books of paper and ideas...the one I am offering for this hop is the cream colored book - "Journey Girl".  These papers are amazing and so much fun to work with.

Now, here is the hop line-up!  Make sure you hop to everyone's blog and show them some love!!

Nothing better than playing in puddles! One of my favorite days and layouts ever was from my boys playing in the puddles while at Disney World! Great job!

This LO is just as cute as can be. The girls just look like they are having so much fun in those puddles. I sure like the font and the boots you chose to use. I do not have Nate's cart. yet, but I plan to get it.

When I was reading your post and got to the part about making maple syrup, well, I must say I got a little sidetracked and hungry.LOL Thanks for a great blog hop!
