My Springtime Garden

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It is time for another challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we have a great theme -create something with a child's theme. I went with a child's garden. My kids loved to be outside in my garden when they were young, my son liked to dig in the soil (and he still does,he's a landscaper) and my daughter liked to cut flowers and pick the vegetables. She wasn't crazy about getting dirty. This image reminds me of her. My daughter loved to dress up when she was young, she always had a bow in her hair and love to accessorise. I think she owned as many shoes at age 5 as she does now, too many to count! I think this card is going to her, as a do you remember card.

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week Bugaboo Stamps

This image as well as the images that the ladies used this week are some of their new releases. They are also having a sale for the month of March(til the 25th) 20% off all images. The ladies really did a fabulous job on their creations hoping to inspire you to play along with us this week so be sure to stop by their blogs for a real treat!
