April Showers bring May Flowers Blog Hop Day #1

You are in the right place for the April Showers blog hop....

Thinking of you Kathryn, here's to a fast recovery!


Just a little get well soon card for Kathryn Martinez.  Although I don't personally know Kathryn, she did graciously allow me to be a part of her monthly theme based blog hops and now she is under the weather and had to take a hiatus from the group for awhile, so Kathryn, thank you for getting me involved and Get Well Soon!! -- Liz



Welcome to the "April Showers Brings May Flowers" Blog Hop! This hop will showcase things that are all about spring so please sit back and relax and let this hop put you in a springtime mood where the sweet smelling cool rain gently wets the ground so the seeds poke their heads out and become beautiful flowers.

If you happened to stumble upon the hop here by chance, and want to start from the beginning, it all starts with Lissa at www.somanycrafts.com , this will take you through the entire hop of inspiration.

Be sure to give some love throughout, as each one has worked hard on their projects for you today..   Other hosts may be giving out blog candy so keep an eye open since they may have different rules on how to win.

For my project this month (you didn't know this was a monthly blog? It is!! with a different theme each month) I made a two page layout dealing with April and rain LOL, Today, Saturday the 7th, I'm showing you the first page, come back tomorrow for the second page.


My little beaver was made from the Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge. I cut the umbrella from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. The paper is from the Where the Heart is by My Mind's Eye paper pack.

We have camping property at Woodhaven Lakes in Sublette IL and with the family we decided to redo our fire pit. So, the kids pull out all the current round bricks and start leveling out the area getting ready to lay the bricks back in, in a different pattern and it starts to pour. All the kids ( and when I say kids, they are 32, 30 & 28) run for cover under a canopy we had set up to stay dry.....the rest of the story tomorrow :-)

Thanks for stopping by hope you like the start of my April layout. Make sure you continue on our Spring fresh hop by visiting Jearise next. Stop back tomorrow for page two and some blog candy!! Winner needs to comment on both days! Sorry US residents only though.
