Clear It Out Pastel Scraps Challenge

Okay so I am a bit late posting this (Sorry) But in case you haven't heard, I am on the design team at the Clear It Out challenge blog.  Our Current Challenge is to use up your pastel papers & the theme is Easter.  I don't celebrate Easter, but they are okay with anyone interpreting this challenge their own way (Because they know many of us don't celebrate the same holidays).  We were sponsored by

A Day For Daisies
If you haven't seen her artwork, you are in for a treat. Tammy is an amazing artist, she has generously offered  our winner a
 $12 gift card (equals  3 digital images)
So here is my card: 

Yes it is a digi card, so I guess I cheated a bit since i didn't use up any of my actual paper stash (Which I do have tons of).  But I did use actual paper to print the little fairy & colored her with my copic markers. 
The Challenge runs until Monday April 2nd, So why don't you join us?
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

So The 12th has come & gone again!

Can you believe it?  This year is just flying on by! Ella pubs has a great prize this month for someone who joins their take 12 challenge.  Of course the real prize will be the wonderful album at the end of the year.  So if you haven't seen it you might want to check it out.

So here is both sides of my take 12 layout :

I saw many layouts on the Flickr group that detailed their life right now or even that day, and it inspired me to go back & be more detailed in my journaling.  The close up shows the Original journaling &  I know the picture is too small here is what it says:

Ryan stayed home sick today.  His rash has almost cleared up, but he’s been running a low grade fever since Saturday evening.  He didn’t take his medicine, so he drove me crazy all afternoon, 
Pat came to clean our house today!  I am so glad I have help.  My house looks about a hundred times better than it used to, because I am no longer desperately overwhelmed.  So project organization continues.
Spring is coming!  My crocus are blooming & the Daffodills are starting to come up.  I may even need to water the grass soon.  Also, when I picked up the mail, a birdie was singing to me! 
Hobbes has gotten into my pajama drawer again.  I don’t know why, but he likes to pull a corner of it open, dig out some stuff & then climb inside!
 I’ve been rereading the little house books.  I had forgotten how much I loved them. 
Ryan was really happy that I made ravioli for supper. 
Also tried so hard but could not find an iPad case that I liked, so I got a clear one & decorated it myself. 

Some of these pictures are pretty little on the page so I wanted to share some bigger versions of a couple.

After Hobbes has gotten in my drawer this is what I find.

My newly Decorated iPad case

Do you see the birdie?

I love crocus! And my macro lens that lets me get such great pictures of these tiny flowers.
