Memories in Tyme Blog Hop- All Things Spring Day 2

First of all I want to wish you all a Happy Easter.  
I hope you are having a blessed day with your families.  

Today my Lasting Memories Design Team post will also be my post for the Memories in Time Blog Hop. The challenge this week at Lasting Memories is April Showers Bring May Flowers- rainy day or blooms. I hope you will check out my layout and then join us this week for the Lasting Memories layout challenge. I look forward to seeing your entries each week.

Welcome to the Memories in Tyme blog hop Day 2 - where you will find some seriously talented people who love to share their ideas with you! Our hop today and tomorrow is all things relating to spring - full of ideas for layouts, cards, décor or whatever else we’ve all decided to make! This is Lynda’s favorite time of the year - where things are starting to look nice, not be too hot, flowers and trees starting to come out, and people in their yards making their surroundings look good!

Now, if you just happened upon my blog, then please go back to the beginning which is at Lynda’s blog ( Besides, the beginning is always the
best anyway!!! You should have arrived from Rhonda at Crafting with Blue.
Let’s get started with the Springy ideas. I have three layout pages I made using Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime stack. If your observant you will notice that two of the pages have the same pictures as I do doubles of all my pictures. One for me and one for my daughters. The pictures are of my third granddaughter Brittany. I fussy cutted some of the pieces and pop dotted them to give more dimension. Lots of inking. I also added some tiny flowers I made using Flower Shoppe. Added seam binding ribbon of various colors, heart shaped paper clips and pearls
