I have been busy this week working at school but did manage to find a little time to scrap.
This started with a sketch from SkethNSCrap
I ended up flipping the sketch and simplifying it. I recreated the background of the kid's birthday photo using this fun paper. Their backyard is fenced in with cinderblock. We love using that for chalk drawings! It was perfect for a birthday celebration.

Last Wednesday we started the 3 day drive back across the country and arrived home on Friday. The Michigan weather welcomed us with nice warm temps but by Monday it was in the 40s and has stayed there all week. Nothing like a shock to the system:) It wanted to remind us that we were no longer in Phoenix.
Have caught up on cleaning and shopping and seeing our son.
I spent one day reorganizing/purging in my art/craft room so am now ready to get to work. I need more watercolor cards and paintings for up coming sales with the art group. And, I have thousands of photos to scrap:):)
A facebook group I am in explored the theme of loose landscape this week. Here are a couple i tired.
Watercolor is all about practice, practice, practice and letting it dry between layers:):)
Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you have a fun and healthy weekend. I appreciate your kind words. Please feel free to share and advice or criticism as well.

In 5 days we will be heading back to Michigan. Where has the past four months gone?!?
Yesterday our oldest granddaughter turned 4. We had a joint party for her and her brother last Sunday. His birthday is in 5 weeks and he will be 2. Such fun ages!
In honor of the warmer weather - going to 98 here on Sunday - here are some flowers. I hope to see some blooming when we get back to Michigan.

How did it become the end of March? Just another 10 days or so before we head back to Michigan. Our snowbird time with the grandkids is up.
We have moved in with the kids for the last two weeks. Being here with a 4 year old and 2 year old leaves me with little time to be creative. I will have plenty of time once I get home to catch up on painting and scrapbooking.
There is still time for hand and footprint art:) They have gotten more complex from when we started:)
