something springy to brighten your day- March sketch from My Little Shoebox

I think we need as much sunshine in our lives right now as we can get.

Wouldn't you agree?

Yesterday a new sketch challenge was posted on the My Little Shoebox blog:

I decided to give it a try only I flipped the sketch to the left 90 degrees so that I could use my vertical picture. I also added a couple of extra pictures since I don't very often do pages with just one picture. 

Here is my take:

Sorry for the funky-ish pic.I need to get one that's a bit clearer and not so crooked.

and some detail shots:

the journaling; Sarah has always been our little flower girl gathering pretty flowers wherever she finds them. -Aurora, Colorado 2010

Isn't that little butterfly so cute? If you know my scrapping very well you know that I really like to cut things out of patterned paper to use for embellishments

These are some pictures that I took while we were in Aurora, Colorado last summer visiting my sister and her family. Sarah finds flowers wherever she goes and she had fun with these ones we found at the park.

The papers are, of course, My Little Shoebox as are the little black alpha stickers. The other alphas and the little dots on the flowers are from American Crafts. The glitter foam ones are some of my faves. ♥

You can try out the sketch, too, for a chance at a MLS prize pack. 
Details are here:

In other news, I am going to play with my March kit from My Scrapbook Nook today!
