April Showers bring May Flowers Blog Hop Day #2


Welcome to day #2 of 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 I'm showing you the second page, I hope you visited yesterday to see page one.



Paper is from the From the Heart by My Mind's Eye paper pack, letters were cut from the Cricut cartridge Mickey Font, clouds were also cut from a Cricut cartridge, but because I used my Gypsy, I can't say which one.

Now that I see Pg2 up it's a little plain for me, so I will be adding more, probably rain drops and a border on the bottom.


So to finish off my story, the "kids" were so excited to work on the new fire pit, they designed it, pulled all the stone out and were set to building the new pit.  My husband of course was totally satisfied with the old pit and kept telling the kids they better know what they were doing because he wasn't doing any of it lol!  He wanted a pre-made one with a metal ring.  So all the stones are pulled and it starts to pour.  All the kids run for cover and my husband and at the time soon-to-be son in-law stay out in the rain and now mud and finish up the fire pit.  So, there is my husband and oldest grandson sitting in front of the not so roaring fire, under an umbrella because after all the hard work my husband was determined to have a campfire!  It was a fun afternoon even with the rain and mud!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you made it both days, and if you did make sure you comment and leave a way for me to contact you in case you are the winner of my blog candy:

LOL, when I read your story, I thought that the better Theme to t his blog Hop would be: "April Showers Bring MUD!" hahahaha. Isn't that just like men, though, stubbornly wanting a fire in the rain, because they wanted to have the satisfaction of completion? The rest of us are content to wait for a dry day, for sure!!

I'm enjoying this hop with you. Cyberhugs and smooches for a blessed holiday!!

Fondly,
