Spring Beauty

Everything around here is really coming to life.  Flowers abound and colors are spectacular.  For the 2nd year in a row our Bradford Pear Tree has bloomed.  It wasn't loaded with blooms, but there were quite a few blooms throughout the tree.  We planted a crabapple tree at the same time as the pear tree.  It had never bloomed.  I noticed this week that it has!!  Very exciting.

I took some photos of the pear tree in bloom.  One of the photos was pretty eye popping.  The bright sky behind the flowers makes the picture stand out.  I really wanted to scrap this photo for the 52 Hour Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin'.  I wanted to join this week's challenge at Lasting Memories as well.  The challenge is "Hopping Into Spring".  The perfect subject for my spring flowers.  They also have a nice sketch as inspiration, which I used.


And here is my page....


Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge is Hexagons.  I used some Nikki Sivils paper as the background mat for the photo that has has hexagons and bees on it.  The I remembered that I had a bee charm that I got years ago and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it.  I'm so glad I remembered I had it.

Thanks for looking.  I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.
