I went to a local garden show the other weekend with some ladies from my women's group/book club. It was a gorgeous day, although not a lot of the exhibits were outside. But we had a good time looking at flowers and chatting over lunch in the flower-themed cafe. I bought me some apple butter from mom-and-pop. SO GOOD. And then I did a layout about the trip.

This layout is based on "Pit Stop" by Mama2Ainslie.(Don't know her real name, but that is her handle.) I also entered this in a challenge over at Burlap & Buttercups. The challenge was to recycle or upcycle something on a layout or project. I cut circles out of Starbucks cup sleeves and placed them on my layout so that the underside of corrugated cardboard showed. Then I placed paper flowers on top. Voila! Homemade embellishments and it's a little bit "green".

If you want to participate in the challenge, head on over to Burlap & Buttercups. You have until the end of the month, and there are other challenges going on that you can participate in.

In other spring news, here are some pretty flowers that have already started blooming in front of our house. Happy spring!
