The first story I want to tell from March is all about sunshine, and I originally envisioned filling a round "sun" with arrows based on one of the weekend's first challenges. I found this perfect patterned paper in my stash.
I also used one of those INSPIRATION pieces (the one in the middle) that I shared in my last post as a starting point.
As you can see, I ended up cutting the yellow arrows from the patterned paper and using them to enhance the sunshine theme of the layout. Journaling reads: Our mail carrier, Lynette, always has a smile and an upbeat personality, despite the fact that she has to get out and put packages on our porch many times a week. One rainy day in March I laughingly said, "If you see any sunshine, bring it my way." The next day the sun was actually shining & I found a note in my mailbox! This delivery note totally made my day, so I left a thank you note in the mailbox for Lynette to find the following day! I love that we have such a great carrier!
All the smaller papers on this layout came from my scraps file, including the piece with the heart cut out (which I used on this mixed media canvas last year) and some paint chips from the hardware store.
It's actually supposed to rain most of the weekend here with the possibility of severe storms and tornadoes. A perfect weekend (minus the tornado threat!) for staying in my craft room and enjoying the Focus Your Craft and Soul event. Will you be joining in?
