Today feels like....

we completely skipped spring here and went right into summer!  It's actually 26C out right now and sunny!  
Do I dare put away the winter coats?  Hmmm, maybe not, it could turn ugly yet and I don't want to jinx anything!


It's so nice to see things are starting to come up, I'm anxious to start gardening again.  I'm sure this favorite place of mine will be a weekly visit for me too.  


Wellington Gardens opened at the end of last month, and I think I've been there four times already!  Their gift shop is amazing, as you can see and their gardens are beautiful.  The owners make several trips a year to Europe and the States and bring back wonderful antiques (my weakness).  Sometimes I even buy plants!  If you have never been there, check it out!  

I made this layout using a color palette and sketch from this website, The Color Room.  It's a new site with an amazing design team and great inspiration!  Check it out!


"This Boy" is actually going to be 30 on Sunday!  I can't believe I'm the mother of a 30 year old, where did the time go?!!  I really had my children very, very young, didn't I?  Ha ha!

I have a thing for old metal or wire, don't know why, just do.  I started making these metal swirls out of thin gold wire and I think they will probably show up on more layouts.  Easy to make and they add just a little something to a layout.  


                 

That's it for today, I'm going to get started on my layout for the monthly challenge at Urban Scrapbook.
I've been waiting anxiously for this new line, so I'm excited about using it.  I cleaned my scrapbook room up a bit yesterday, so I can actually see my desk, but I'm sure it won't last long once I start scrapping!  Have a great week!!

Yes, it has been 80F/27C here in Texas too. We have/had a store locally that reminds me much of the store you mentioned. Wish I could shop there more often.

I like that page, especially the way you treated the edges of the blue ribbon flowers.

Another great layout - I am so impressed with your creativity and talent. Thanks for the reminder about Wellington - I haven't been there yet this year.
