Around here!

Good Morning everyone and welcome Tuesday!  WOW!  What a day we had yesterday.  Our temps soared into the 70's and my family definitely had spring fever!

Today I would like to share the latest challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  Check it out:

Challenge YOUrself #17: Around Here
Record some of your daily blessings 
(snippets of your normal day)

Remember to include YOU in the photo :)

Here is my take on the challenge:

Since Easter was last weekend, I used a photo of Anne and I from Easter last year.  And I have been obsessed with Webster's Pates papers lately.  This beautiful sheet of paper is from the "Dream in Color" collection!

And here are two different views:

And to end, I would like to share some photos that I have taken during the last month:

This is the farm down the road from our home:

Jacobsburg Park one foggy evening:
 A snow storm that we had last week.  I took this with my cell phone through the windshield:

The morning after the snow:

We long for spring!  You can see the snow falling in the background:

Easter morning:

I hope you enjoyed the photos - a snippet of our last month!  If you have a chance, please check out the latest challenge at Challenge YOUrself!  These challenges really give me the motivation to scrap photos with me in them!

Have a wonderful week and enjoy spring!

Hugs to you all!!!


  1. Hello Sharon!! So happy you posted, have missed seeing you. Gorgeous layout and pictures, especially the last one!! We had more snow too but haven't warmed up that much as you have. Can't wait for spring to really get here and stay. Glad you got to enjoy a little warm weather finally, it's been a long winter again.
    The Middle has been so funny too, hope your watching it and keeping up. Love the one where they saw Mike singing in the car, I had tears coming down from laughing so hard.
    Hope all is well with you and family. Take care and thanks for sharing! HUGS!

  2. I love the "cross" clothes line! Happy Spring Sharon. Great page and photo. Anne's a beauty too!

  3. Your lo is GORGEOUS!!!! I love love love the scene you created!!! And loving the photos ... the one with the cross is AMAZING!!!!!!!!

  4. Lovely layout! So unique! I've been loving the photos you've been sharing too. Makes me want to get my camera out and dust it off! :)

  5. Your photos are beautiful...I love the cross clothes lines.

    Gorgeous layout too...I wish I had the nerve to cut out the images on my photos...can't do it xx

  6. Hello Sharon;
    making a little visit around here and worshiping their
    clicks and recent layouts, you have been increasingly creative :)

  7. Lovely photographs, Sharon! Happy spring to y'all there!

  8. Beautiful Sharon, I am loving this style of yours and always enjoy your seeing your photo's. We had a touch of snow here yesterday brrrr, just getting us ready for the weather in Scotland . We leave today to head to Sydney and fly out for Europe on Friday morning, for 5 weeks

  9. This looks fantastic! Love your photos, as always!

  10. Hi there! Oo that snow makes me feel cold! We are heading into the middle of autumn here and we have had a shock drop in our temperature this morning! Bbrrrrr! But the snow photos do look so pretty on the landscape, but I reckon your land is waiting impatiently for warmer days! Love your layout, love the cut out photo! And I hope you had a lovely Easter too!

  11. I don't know how you do this but it is GORGEOUS!!!!

  12. Looove that 'cross' one on the bottom....VERY clever! Love all your photos, of course! And your scrap page is amazing...gorgeous pp. And the way you've added the dimension....brill!!!

  13. I love your lay out, Sharon! You do such beautiful layouts and I love the picture of you and Anne! I think everyone is longing for spring in the Mid-Atlantic this year. We've had a few good days but this week it's been rainy and chilly. I love the pictures of your neighborhood. Snow is beautiful when it first falls but I like when it goes away quickly! I hope all is well with you and your family. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I really appreciate hearing from you! Have a great week, my friend!

  14. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!! I love the soft, Easter colors and your hands in the air in the picture - and LOVE the sewing on your page. PLUS, HOW stinking cute is Anne - love that chalkboard! So, may I ask, is she loving Hunger Games? Kendra is 9 but an avid reader and I'm looking for another series to get her into - I was thinking Harry Potter but is the Hunger Games appropriate for her age? Thanks for your thoughts when you can! xoxoxo

    1. Hi Kristin! Anne is 12 and I wondered about Hunger Games being a little to graphic for her. But I talked to her teachers at school, and it seems to be a great choice for her at her age.

  15. Hello Sharon - waving back!
    Love the pink clouds and the lovely tree with all the leaves. It's a super-happy picture.
    It looks cold in your photos. We've had a few warm days here, sunny and clear.
    Hugs to you.

  16. I hear you on those Webster's papers. Yum! Love what you've done with this one, especially the way those balloons frame you and Anne so beautifully! And your photos are gorgeous! TFS!

  17. Anne is growing up so fast and is a beautiful young lady. Your page is awesome, and your photography is always so stunning. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us!

  18. I love your layout Sharon! I'm obsessed with Websters Pages too and I love what you keep doing with them! And those photos.....sigh......

  19. Brilliant layout - love that paper too - you work it so well!

  20. Gorgeous layout Sharon....you really do these Websters papers so well and you have really created a beauty again! I have this pack of papers and have yet to even think of using it....you certainly give me inspiration, everytime I see your work with it! Love your photo's too.....you are amazing!!!! I so admire your photography skills! xx
