For the Record, Work in Progress

The March kit of Work in Progress features Echo Park's "For the Record."  I particularly like the deep colors in this gorgeous collection.  I got the kit this past Friday and was able to create a couple of layouts and a card with it. I have one more layout on my scrap table yet :)

At the rate we are going, we will never see green grass or our tulips again, so I settled for a picture from last spring.  I have several 5x7 photos of Second Child holding that number 3 yet: too cute not to print, too many to scrap!  LOL!  All my photos are print in advance, I think I've mentioned this before.  This woman is too cheap to own a home printer for photos! sigh...  I used a large Fancy Pants stamp on the upper left hand corner. Laina gave me that set of stamp along with several other sets!  It's so perfect with this collection.
Here is helpful girl helping Daddy with black dirt :)  Seriously I miss the warmer weather, I can tell by which pile of photos I go to and which pile of photos I avoid :)
I couldn't help but think of Deana when I was using the twine.  I really wanted to save some and send to her, because she might have a shortage by now!
Well, that's about it from me tonight. I'm off to dream of sunshine and green grass :)
