MSgreenthumbs Layout

Dear gardening friend Linda took these photos of me on a day last summer after she handed me her shovel and said, "Dig!" That was right after I had enjoyed rolling down her sloping hillside to the creek bed--it feels so good to do kid-like stuff. So I was acting silly, as you can see.

We were in her beautiful botanical-rich backyard among the irises. She wanted to give me starts of pampas grass. The ground was so hard, we took turns digging, and I was able to bring three starts home. They since bloomed with pretty plumes!

Aren't the iris colors pretty with this Key To My Heart paper collection?

The stamped tabs along the top spell "free therapy". (And so it is!)

I used the "Bottom Border-title" layout in the CTMH Reflections book (page 35) with these products:

Key To My Heart papers
Dazzling die cuts in white daisy
Yellow colored pencil & juniper ink/water pen on the die cuts
Colonial white ribbon
Spring blossoms brads
Juniper & Chocolate inks
Stamps: Amore lower case & Chocolate alpha small

I'm so anxious to get back to gardening again! I still have some daffodils to plant so I had better find my gloves and bulb planter.

Love seeing this page in the middle of the winter! I know we haven't had it nearly as bad as you but this week's snow storm here has reminded me why I do indeed love being a Carolina girl. Looking forward to hearing all about your gardening adventures!

So pretty! I love the "free therapy" saying at the top. True, very true.
