Spring Fling Blog Hop!

It's March and Spring is in the Air when a young man's fancy turns to fishing and a young girl's fancy turns to a new ward drobe!!! Ok, maybe not but there are so many things out that there to symbolize Spring Has Sprung ....

We have a talented group of crafters participating today to show their interpretation of SPRING . . . .

  5. Vicky ~ http://crafting-vicky.blogspot.ca/
  6. Edwina ~ http://edwinascreations.blogspot.com/

We have a fabulous sponsor:
Miriam's Crafting Supplies, https://www.facebook.com/MiriamsCraftingSupplies?fref=ts. She has super pearls, bling, and great additions for your crafting projects!

Now on to my project. I chose to create a 'digital' layout of what I most like to do in the spring and that is gardening. In Florida Spring is my favorite time the temperature is usually comfortable and just perfect for puttering around in the garden. Once summer hits FORGET IT I spend very little time out side so my gardening goes by-by and the weeds take over. In the winter I take care of the weeds and the cycle begins again!! LOL

I used My Memories software to create this page and the bulk of the paper and embellishment are from a free kit I got from Design House Digital for attending their hop this month. I believe the file is called
"Sweet As Spring".

Your next stop along the way is the fabulous Vicky who will be bring more spring fling your way!!!!!!

Hope you liked my layout and are enjoying our fun Spring hop1

National Woman's History Month is an annual declared month worldwide that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women's Day on March 8.

 March 4th
is a day that we all can embrace. It's "Hug a GI Day". Give a great big hug to any and all GIs you see today. The men and women in our armed forces deserve our thanks and appreciation. 

GI's perform an invaluable service to our country. They risk their lives for our freedom, and to keep us safe. A simple hug is a small thanks for this vital service to our country. 

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is the awesomely talented Lisa. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on April 13, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
