Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a wonderful weekend. We had Eva, Fleur's best friend staying with us on Saturday. Eva is such a sweet girl, and she and Fleur get along so well. The girls played outside with friends from school on Saturday afternoon. They have a wonderful group of friends and I enjoy watching them play together. At noon on Sunday Eva's mom came to pick her up, but Eva didn't want to leave. The girls wanted to spend a few more hours together so Eva's mom invited Fleur to come over to their home. She joined the family to visit Eva's grandmother and had dinner with them. Eric was supposed to leave for Dublin yesterday, but due to the cloud of volcanic ash from Iceland there haven't been any flights since Friday. The weather was beautiful yesterday so we sat outside enjoying the sunshine.
This card featuring Old World Cabbage Stew went up on the Jillibean Soup blog today. I am not a vintage scrapbooker, but I love the vintage feel of this collection. And what do you think of the new Canvas Flowers? The flowers come in different sizes and are wonderful to use on cards and layouts.

Creative Scrappers is celebrating its 2nd birthday in April. Lots and lots of fabulous sketches this month as well as fun games and great prizes to win. Creative Scrappers is a great sketch blog and I was fortunate to be their guest designer for Sketch #64. This month I am one of the lucky readers to contribute to Creative Scrappers' Birthday Bash and Kristine sent me a great sketch to work with. Unfortunately I won't be able to share my layout until April 29th so I'll leave you with a sneak peek. I combined two of my favorites on this layout.....Jillibean Soup and Zva Creative.
I'll be back with a birthday card tomorrow. Until then!
