The Boys...

 
Hi there!  I hope everyone was treated well by the Easter bunny and more importantly that you had a day filled will family, friends and many blessings.  We definitely had a weekend with lots of great family time.  I'll have more pictures to share with lots of cousin time, but I thought I'd share a few of the boys.  I try to snap individual photos of each of the boys.  With spring arriving early this year, the trees and flowers were in full bloom and made a nice backdrop for the pictures.  You can definitely get a bit of a sense of their personalities in these photos.  And I wanted to share this one below of Collin...he was very intent on blowing the bubbles from Nana!

My card today will go to Molly who I mentioned in this post. If you are so inclined, I'd love for you to send her a card.  I didn't have a card in my stash that I felt was appropriate, so I made this one inspired by Laurie's card for CASE Study.  I don't typically cover the entire card base with patterned paper, but I loved the soft feel of this My Mind's Eye paper.  I added the sentiment from Verve's New Mercy set along with a die cut heart from Verve.  You can see I took the heart, flower and twine from Laurie's card too.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope your week got off to a great start!


Below is Laurie's gorgeous inspiration card!
