Spring is here -finally!!

We had the most wonderful week of Spring last week! Finally, no coat/sweater weather! Of course, we are making up for it with a week of rain starting today, but everything is so wonderfully green!

I finished my last journal, I am posting the last pages, and I have started my bigger journal, 8 X 10 I think. It will be odd working on such large pages again! Haven't done much else in the last month, except my Mother's Day card:

I used a tag from my new Graphics 45 Steampunk paper pad.

Here are my journal pages:

 My Traci Bunkers order came in!

If you look in my last post you can see these pages before they were journaled upon. My DD and her boyfriend are in France for a wedding, and will spend the next 3 weeks in France and Spain, so my first few journal pages of my new journal will probably be about their trip. Talk about living vicariously! LOL!

BTW, a journalist I am enjoying, especially since she makes so many videos, is Journal Artista aka Paula. She showed a wonderful technique of making corrugated cardboard which I LOVE, here are some ATCs I made using her technique:

These are all swapped in a Ranger ATC Swap, but I loved making them, so I'll probably make lots more! Go to Paula's blog to see how she does this!

One last thing, ALTERED PAGES has launched it's new website, and it's AWESOME!! Please go and see what they have in their new "store" - lots of new things beside their already wonderful collage sheets!
