Blast from the Past Blog Hop!

It's been a while since I've been able to play along with the Taylored Expressions blog hops! They are often on Thursdays, and I have other commitments on Thursdays. So when I saw this month's hop was happening on a Wednesday, I jumped on it! The theme is spring - what does spring mean to me? Well... here's my somewhat odd card for that theme...


Are you puzzled? :-) Well here's the deal - this spring, for me, is about getting healthy. I've been trying hard to eat well, drink more water (and less diet coke!), exercise... we're moving to Atlanta soon, and if I'm going to fit in with those real housewives out there (hahahahaha) I need to get my act together. Or more seriously - if I want to keep up with my kids, I need to make some changes. :-) AND... spring is also about veggies - the farmer's markets have some delicious veggies these days, which makes me very happy. And we've planted our own little veggie patch out in the garden! So I pulled out my Weigh to Go! set and got to work. The veggies are from the set, it's not patterned paper - if you look closely you can tell because I went out of the lines about a zillion times while coloring them!


My sweet friend Sankari provided an optional sketch for us hoppers, which of course I used!





Have fun hopping around, and thanks for stopping by today!
