How I Spent My Monday~

Hello dear friends. I hope your day was filled with sunshine. Mine finally was! And I enjoyed the day outside and got a few things accomplished. Of course, my Sissie girl had to help me. I should have name her Suey! She was rootin', diggin', and a snortin'!
If you double click you can see the dirt on her face. She hates getting her picture taken for some reason. She usually hides.

She loves being outside. And even rides in the wheelbarrow. I didn't get a photo of that. But I will try next time. As you can kind of see by all the dirt on the sidewalk we are doing major landscaping. Out of the 26 underground sprinklers, 11 of them leaked! So you know what that means...
I snuck this photo before she realized what I was doing. As soon as the camera clicked, she was outta here! :)

Onto a different subject is another collage I made. This time using teals and browns.

I found this cherub at a church sale. A broken piece just laying there on the table. I knew I could use it on one of my collages.
Another beautiful image from Paper Whimsy. I love their images so much. They are so clear. The teal velvet behind the lady was such a deep, rich color. I loved using it.

All the trimming and velvet on this collage are from Flights of Fancy. They have beautiful laces, ribbons and flowers too. Well, that's it for today. I'm sure glad you stopped by.

What are your plans for Easter Sunday? A big dinner? Easter egg hunt? Church? Traveling to relatives? All the above?

I hope you did something enjoyable today. Something relaxing or creative. I would love to hear what you did!

OMG, she is adorable. Love the dirty face. That collage is amazing. Love the colors you chose. I need to check out Paper Whimsy and Flights of Fancy. Thank you for sharing. My bday is on Easter this year. We've decided to celebrate both with Maryland crabcakes flown in! Not traditional Easter fare around here but a welcome treat. Have a blessed holiday! Have you entered the latest giveaway? I can't remember after three weeks who has and has not! Forgive me!

I will spend Easter with my best friend and her family, don't know what we are having yet. But I'll be baking Easter bread this week and a cheese cake to bring.

What a cute little dog- she's adorable!
I love the new collage- the gold and teal work so well together.
My Easter will be spent with family with my SIL cooking so it will be a surprise. It's bound to be good as she is a wonderful cook.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Easter Blessings to you and your family.

Oh my Sonya, your Sissie is precious. Jingles always turns her head when I try to get a picture. It takes a lot of coaxing to get her to look my way. Looks like you had a glorious day outdoors. Love the teals and browns in your collage. Always a great color combination. Wishing you all the best, Tammy
