Well, hello everyone! Finally I can report that here in PA we are finally seeing spring come to life with normal to warm temps, sunshine, and and abundance of budding trees and flowers. Most of the weekend was spent outdoors taking it all in :) I hope that for those of you further north you are finally done with the snow too!
Above is a portion of this card:
See that little thingy at the top right that looks kinda like a bee or a moth or insect of some sort? Well, the "hello" is a sticker and these three bits were left from the loops of the "h" and "ll"s and I decided to use them too:)

For T Stands for Tuesday I'll share a recent breakfast I enjoyed with my Mom:
We went back to VaVa's Creperie Café and instead of lunch this time we chose to go for breakfast and try a breakfast crepe. My thermal mug is filled with green tea which I brought along because I had already had my coffee/caffeine quota for the day:) We both chose the Végétarien which was filled with scrambled egg, spinach, mushrooms and a light amount of cheddar cheese. Delicious!
One final journal page for Art Journal Journey -this month's theme being " Recycle and Collage" and hosted by Alison. Thanks for your art inspiration and a great theme!
This is in my calendar journal. Scrap papers and napkin piece from one of my collage /ephemera bins, and some washi tape.
At the end of the week I am unplugging so I can enjoy the out of doors a few days. Will be back with some renewed inspiration I'm sure;) Until then be well, be creative, be happy!
