It's Coming

For several weeks now, some of my friends on Facebook have been sharing signs of spring in their yards. When the first photos appeared, we still had a foot of snow on the ground. We still have some covering about half of the front yard, but I witnessed our first signs of spring on Thursday!! The daffodils near the front deck are coming up.

Today is Sunday and time again for the weekly challenge at Lasting Memories. The challenge this week is one of my favorite kinds of challenges - A 1, 2, 3 Recipe. I used 3 photos I took on Thursday, showing all the snow still in the front yard and the daffodils coming up, even through the snow. I followed the current sketch from Scrap A Little! Sketches. I first saw the sketch before I took the photos. I took the pictures with the sketch in mind.

The photos may be a bit tough to see on the layout, so I am including just the photo of the flowers also. The recipe is to use 1 - Diecut, 2 - Brads and 3 - layers.

As luck would have it, one of the challenges at Scrappin-n-Chattin this month is to use a Diecut as a background. I'm going to use this layout as my 2nd entry for this challenge. I can't wait to see what everyone cooks up this week. Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration the design team has to offer.
