Robin - The Paper Variety Challenge and Scrapbookaholic By Abby

The weekend has come and gone.  It's chilly here,  a mere 28 degrees this morning, not what is expected for Spring.  Last night the evening air was brisk and filled with the aroma of smoke from my neighbor's chimney.  I closed my eyes for a few seconds and actually thought it was still winter.  Snow was in the forecast, but we were spared.  I found myself thinking about Spring, warmer weather and the growth of my plants in my flower gardens.   I remember a week ago looking out my kitchen window and seeing a  robin sitting on my fence rail. The image of the robin remained in my mind and I drew my from inspiration from it for my layout.

This week there is a Tic Tac Toe challenge at The Paper Variety.
Choose three in a row and create!  I chose the bottom row, make a layout, include a bird and use scallops.
Over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge #2 is all about Spring!
I discovered I had a kit I had purchased last November from My Creative Scrapbook filled with Basic Grey Curio papers and gorgeous Prima flowers.   The papers were perfect for my ode to the Robin.
