LMCB 84 "Hopping into Spring"

Hello everyone!  It's either still Sunday or early Monday depending on how fast I type this post!!  :-)  It's time for another FUN challenge over at Lasting Memories!!  Link up here at LMCB 84 by Saturday 4/21 at 9pm EST to be eligible for a $15.00 gift Certificate from our very own JENNASA.  Or you have a chance to be a part of our TOP 3 or FEATURED throughout the week!!
Show us your EASTER or SPRING themed layouts!  Anything to do with Easter OR anything to show that Spring has Sprung in your neck of the woods.  Sun, Rain, Kids playing, Flowers... and in my case it's that FIRST MOW of the LAWN that tells me SPRING has finally arrived!!  


And this was a Special FIRST mow of the Lawn!!  Daddy teaching Son how to mow the grass!  Both with their black rubber boots, trudging along.  I couldn't pass up this photo op!!  Fun to scrap pictures that you took the same day.  I don't do that very often!! 



Close-up of my Banner, Journaling and my Lawn Mower... 
cut from the Cheerful Seasons Cartridge.

I also followed the newest sketch over at Sketches in Thyme - Thursday Takes # 74.

And... over at the newest challenge at Getting Scrappy - It's all about using Banners or Pennants!  And include a Cricut/SVG cut.  My Title and Lawnmower are cut from the CHEERFUL SEASONS cart.  

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope I inspired you to scrap today!! :-)

I just love this layout! In fact, I hope you don't mind, but I used the same sketch to enter the Getting Scrappy challenge because I liked yours so much. If it is a problem, please let me know and I'll enter a different layout in the challenge.
