Once Upon a Springtime on Easter Sunday . . .

I have been hoarding this Graphic 45 paper for forever!  I purchased it at a local scrapbook store, memory lane pa, that has since closed.  It has been closed for about a year now, and I still miss it so much.  It always had the most beautiful scrapbook papers and supplies, also held fun classes. 

But one good thing about it's closure, is that I have "been able to" go without purchasing new scrapbook supplies.  I have been trying to save money, because Katie is off to college in the fall! She has decided to go to Penn State, main campus.  She just completed her paper work, so it's official.  I can't even believe it!!!!!  Those 18 years just flew by . . .
Here we are 13 years ago!

Anyway, back to subject:

I decided to finally use my "Once Upon a Springtime" paper after John took this photo of "his girls" on Easter Sunday after we got home from church.

The birds nests from from an old Scraps of Darkness kit, and I purchased the pink ribbon flowers a couple of years ago from the Scrappy Chic Cafe.

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Happy Spring!


  1. What a MASTERPIECE!!! So much to see here, and what a great photo! Are those "real" birdsnests? Will you frame this?!!!

    (As a side note, I have my father's childhood Peter Rabbit book with these same graphics...Its an antique now!!!)

    Congrats to Katie!!! A new adventure!!! Can I say that I'm proud of her???!

  2. I'm so happy happy happy that these papers were in your artistic hands...because look at what happened!!!!!!!!!! Soooo beautiful, Sharon!!!!!!!!

    And don't you just hate it when scrapbook stores close? My go-to store and 5 others in my town have closed in the last few years. I may not have spent a lot of time or money in them, but I sure miss drooling over all that lovely paper...
