Good Day Sunshine

It is beautiful here today! I'm so sad for all of you that are having snow this weekend. For once, it looks like we will have a warm sunny Easter! We're having a cookout tonight with some friends at our house, followed by an egg hunt for the kiddos - I'm in charge of dessert and I have apple pie and blackberry crisp baking in the oven. The house smells awesome!

I'm loving my three day weekend. I got most of the chores done yesterday so that I could take it easy today. I spent this morning making a whirly twirly skirt for Miss S to wear on Easter Sunday.

I love this fabric - it's an Alexander Henry print from last yet. I have enough left to make a little something else for Miss S - make a cute little smock top or a couple aprons.

And I participated in Lain's 30 Minute Thursday challenge. I've been wanting to participate for a long time and finally did it! This page took less than 30 minutes even. The challenge was to use 1 piece of yellow cardstock, 2 pictures, 3 pieces of patterned paper, and 4 brads or eyelets. That was the minimum - I added more pictures and used more patterned paper, but kept it to 3 different patterns. I like how this page turned out - sweet and simple.

Like your photo placement on your 30-minute layout. Cute font too! Nice job.
