     As I sit and watch the snow pile up outside my window, I sigh knowing that winter is still here.  However, knowing that spring is just around the corner does bring some solace.  I will admit however, that I was not feeling quite that optimistic when the snow plows dumped all of my garbage/recycling over and I was out there picking it out of the snow this a.m.!  I did manage to get the kids to school (barely) and get back home in one piece.  Hopefully the roads are more clear by pick-up time and the end of my driveway gets magically cleaned up!  Here is a picture from my backyard.  Yes, it is beautiful but I am really ready to see some color...and soon!
     That brings me to my layout.  I love this layout for a few reasons.  First, it is the layout that I sent to Big Scrap Deal to try for a design team spot.  And, since I got a spot, it will always hold a special place in my heart!  The main reason I love this layout is because of the reaction from my dear husband when I showed it to him.  If I am not mistaken, I believe his reactions was, "Wow!  That is amazing.  I think that this is my favorite page that you've ever done."  Now, he is always supportive of my hobby but his reaction is one that I think many scrappers look for when they show someone their layouts!  What a great guy!  
     We were asked to use only three colors and make a handmade embellishment for this layout.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  
     Hopefully sping won't be too far away.  March 21st is the official date, right?  One can only hope...
